Remember now you can get the VP2 data on Weatherlink. You can access the data through http://www.weatherlink.com/user/walrusman444. I am also now on weather underground. My ID is KMDROCKV200 and my station is called “Gardens of Traville.” Data is online, normally just about in real-time.
I was up in the late afternoon to watch the exciting 4th game of the Yanks/Astros playoff series, won by New York 6-4 in a nice late inning comeback from a 4-0 earlier deficit. I talked with Ray in the mid afternoon and evening and Tracy on her way into work in the late afternoon. I microwaved leftover bratwurst, cheese, mushrooms, and eggs and topped it onto a toasted bagel. Later on I had a few triscuits and hot pepper cheese adorned with delicious cholula sauce. I also read my email and facebook communications at times throughout the evening. I had prune juice and some spicy V8 around dinner time along with my vitamins and ice water.
We now have a clear sky at 0642 Wednesday. Wednesday should start warming up with sunny skies and highs around 70° with lows in the mid 40s. Highs in the low-mid 70s and lows in the upper 40s on Thursday and Friday, again with sunny skies. A really dry week with slowly warming temps. Saturday should be mostly sunny with perhaps a few scattered clouds, with highs in the mid 70s and lows in the low 50s.
On Weatherbug at 0642 the radar is clear throughout the Eastern U.S. north of Florida at this time.
