It sure chaanged in a hurry! Yesterday was 29C, low 80's, and now it is overcast with smoke from the Washington fires and 10. From a distance it looks like snow on the mountains. Should clear up in a day or two then back to the mid 70's which is unusually warm for this time of year. The corn is sure looking healthy.

About 5 drops before daylight at the house and a little shower on down the road, but when I got to the woods, dry. Sun was out before noon and the NW wind a blowing. Could be frost in low areas tonight. Nothing has hit the gardens here so far.
Move'n on.

We had a nice rain last week, ended Friday.  Total of 1 1/2".  Just right for the soybeans, which had been suffering.  All the rain we had earlier, the beans got really tall, and then turned dry and some were too far along to recover.  Mine are looking great, looking forward to a good fall harvest.  The corn was already done, and the milo looks better than seen in several years.  North Central Kansas.

Beans up this way have been brown and about leafless for 2 weeks. Corn not filing out they say. Need a lot of water for corn and we never had even a little. :D

39 and a frost warning for the mountains tonight. That might be me. We have to cover things tonight.

Another light frost here overnight. Covered tomatoes this time, bout 40lbs left to ripen on em.
2nd crop of corn is struggling to fill out due to lack of rain. But will get some starting any day now.
Good day time temps for firewood clean up in the woods.

Temps are expected to drop down into the 50's on Friday here, but in the meantime we have the western fire smoke in the air, coming in on the NW wind. It's not bad, and I can't smell it, but makes the sky not as bright.

Frost warning for tonight here to.

We made another batch of tomato sauce on the weekend, got 3 - 16 oz jars. Still eating them out of the garden.

Everything else is harvested that frost would hurt.
Move'n on.

Yeah, it was 45F here to, but it never got to 70F though. Cool wind out there, not cold, but cooler than predicted. :D

Unusually warm for this time of year and supposed to be in the 70's for the next couple of weeks. Perfect for harvesting if it wasn't for the smoke from the south. We can actually see a bit of sky but weatherman says that won't last. We probably won't see frost before our thanksgiving.

Transition weather here now for sure. The last couple of days have been weird because even here we have the smoke layer, although it is up at 25,000 feet. In the morning and afternoon hours the sun can't really get through that layer, so the daytime temps are not reaching what they should. Yesterday the high was about 68, today they are calling for 75, heavy overcast and high humidity. Curious to see what happens. clouds or not, that sun isn't hitting the ground until it is very high in the sky. After today the trend is downward with highs in the 60's and 50's over the next week with no rain in sight.

I just checked the satellite loop and it looks like we might get a break in the northeast on the smoke. If you look at the GOES Channel 16 loop FOUND HERE you can see the smoke in orange. This is for my corner of the world, but you can navigate around and find the plot for your area. You need to look for the CO2 infrared loop to see the smoke.

The very unhealthy air has finally cleared from the valley - just bad for sensitive groups.  However, all the very bad air/smoke is now up the hill at my cabin project so no going up again today.  And tomorrow they are predicting rain up there.  Maybe next week the air will be clean enough to work.

Called for showers today, but not a drop, and now clearing out. Might fall to 32F in some areas tonight. Going to be in the 50's for highs on Friday-Sunday. No rain or showers in the forecast for a week, hasn't been anything for weeks so they need not worry if they don't call for rain at all. :D

62 is the predicted high for the day today, but the clouds should be clearing. I also just checked the GOES image and it looks like we have some smoke cover coming back in again (looks like some up you way later in the day Swamp), but it looks lighter.
 Enjoying the cooler weather and as of this writing, I have little idea what I am doing today, but it will most likely be outside. :) The shop work can wait until the weather drives me inside.

Wow SwampDonkey, you got it cold up there. I am enjoying 50 weather here. But tomorrow morning I will be wearing quilted shirt.  :D  Suppose to be in the mid 30's.
