    It went a little more east of me, but we got a good amount of rain, no lightning or severe winds, although the wind speed has picked up some...

    No complaints about the weather where we live....northwest Indiana about 1 hour south of Chicago.
    Nothing much happens here...we get some good thunderstorms , the odd tornado warning every few years ,and some mild flooding in certain areas but where we live it's always ok. No fires, mudslides, or hurricanes. It can get warm, high 90's in the summer but it doesn't last that long. I'd rather live in the south west but my kids are all in Indiana.

    It's overcast today which is a nice break from the heat. :)

    It is partly cloudy and over 95 degrees F today. Saturday the weather channel that my daughter checks predicted 150 degrees F for the High on Monday. We had a good laugh and figured it was a typo meant to be 105 degrees, but it did not get that hot (and thank goodness it did not get up to 150)

    The humidity is really low today, 28 percent which is unusual for this time of year...The next three days are forecast to have lots of rain, that should bring the humidity back up to normal...

    Wow our humidity is high today, almost 30%. We won't be getting any rain, maybe some wind. The high is forecasted to be 94. I hope the humidity will go down.

    The rainstorms have begun here, it will probably rain the rest of the evening for the most part...

    It was 102 in the shade today. It's cooling down nicely and there's a breeze. I was listening to George Knapp on C2C the other night and he said it has been 110 in the Las Vegas area for ten days in a row. I remember being there as a kid in the summer and it was like a furnace.

    I don't think 110 in Vegas from June through August is any more abnormal than 120 in July in Phoenix. The south west does not seem to be getting the extremes that the north west is getting. In New Mexico we have had more cloudy days in the last year than in the previous 10 years. High humidity and normal temperatures, sweltering weather with heavy rains in some parts of the the state and no rain in others.

    The past two days there have been Air Quality Index warnings on the weather app on my phone. You could literally see a haze settle in and then have to try to breathe that soup.

    God, today is almost an apology for what the weather's been up to. Fresh, cool clean clear air.

    We heard on the news that even in Indiana we had smoke from the wildfires in our skies causing the haze.
