Hurricane Rain

Remnants of Hurricane Gustav moved through this past Thursday. OSNW3 received 0.54" from Gustav. It was a much needed slow and steady rain. The day felt like a mid Spring or Autumn day as the daytime max temperature stayed below 60°. Official max temperature at OSNW3 was 59.5°, the lowest max temp since Jun 3 when the temp maxed out at 58.1°. OSNW3 has received 17% of average precipitation so far this September (0.58" of 3.47") and the max and min temperatures are averaging about 6° below last September, to this date (Max: 79.9/73.9, Min: 66.1/59.4).

Cloud Appreciation
As I was traveling east towards Sheboygan, WI on Wednesday I noticed what may be a cloud I've never witnessed before in person. The old Kelvin-Helmholtz wave cloud. Look very closely and be the judge. It's in the middle of each photo. Click on the photo for a larger view.
