June Continues The Pleasantry

Image
Warm and humid air finally made a move north after a long stretch of wet and seasonally cool days. Dewpoints here at OSNW3 reached 70° late in the week giving a sultry feel to the property. However, with the recent warmer temps we are still 1.1° below the monthly mean temperature, recording a mean temp of 66.3 through 7am on Jun 20. Same in the precipitation department. Through 7am on Jun 20 we are 0.09" below the monthly average of 3.66". It is likely OSNW3 will top the precipitation average in the coming days though. Stay on top of the local forecast by visiting the OSNW3 WxBrief linked below.

An Active June?

A Dank First Half

Image
Ever since the rain barrel has been installed there hasn't been an instance where it wasn't completely full. We haven't had to use any of the water in the barrel as 11 of the first 14 days of June have recorded measurable precipitation. The Oshkosh monthly average is 3.66" and here at OSNW3, as of 7am on Jun 14, we've already recorded 2.83". That is 77% of average with half of the month to go yet. Long range forecasts still call for above average precipitation chances for the next two weeks.

Similar Paths to Oshkosh's Hottest Summers
A hot Summer in Oshkosh isn't always characterized by endless days with highs in 90's and 100's. Overnight minimum temperatures are just as important. Keeping the day's average temp elevated adds to the overall discomfort. Two of Oshkosh's hottest Summer…

Public Information Statement - Historical Droughts

*Update
They made it Top News of the Day. Click here for the official link.

The National Weather Service Green Bay climate team has created 3 messages on the current and past drought for our area. These Public Information Statements can be found on their web site near the top of page along side of the Top News of the Day, Recently Issued: Public Information. Message 1 has the information on the current drought and messages 2 and 3 go back in time.

Season Of The Unicorn

The garden is in. Four kinds of tomatoes, three kinds of peppers, squash, pumpkin, zucchini and an assortment of herbs. The rain barrel is installed and working as well. As far as the weather is concerned, things have continued to be Summer like. Temperatures have been above normal for the most part and precipitation has been plentiful as of late. The 8-14 day temp/precip forecast from the CPC suggests seasonal temps and above normal precip for our area through Jun 18.
