Overnight rains around midnight left nearly 1/2" (.48") at my weather station. I'll have some rain facts coming up in this post below. Along with the rain, we saw some moderate lightning and strong wind gusts. The rain and winds were part of a weak frontal boundary from the northwest. This should tweak our afternoon highs down about 5-7° from the very uncomfortable mid 90's to the somewhat uncomfortable upper 80's!

On this date back in 1968, golf ball-sized hail in reported in our county.
THIS WEEK'S OUTLOOK:
Expect a nice, yet slight change for this week's weather, including a few cooler nights and the possibility of more rainfall by mid-week. Some of this upcoming rainfall may included some strong storms. We'll monitor that closely. Temperatures will fall back out the 90's on Monday and last for most of the forecast period. As we've discussed, June has been hot and dry.
- It was 5 days ago since our last rainfall of just .37"
- Before that, we had a 10 day run of no rainfall
- June's total rainfall is just .88" (on the Davis) and .85" in the manual gauge.
