  • "WEATHER" NOW ON GOOGLE EARTH    From time to time, CoCoRaHS tries to make our observers aware of interesting climate and weather web sites that are out on the Web. It was recently brought to our attention that Google Earth is now offering weather as part of their new Google Earth 5.2. It's pretty cool. To quote from their web site: "It's the middle of summer, but for those of us who long for the return of cold winter weather and warm cups of cocoa, throw on your favorite poncho and check out the weather in Google Earth 5.2. The latest version projects images of rain and snow over the areas with those weather patterns as its actually happening! First enable the clouds layer, then zoom in to a particular location where it might be raining or snowing. Im willing to bet London is a likely spot, even these days, or the Lone Star state which is in the midst of tropical storm season. Currently, our precipitation data cover some areas in North America and Europe; you can see if its available in certain places by enabling the radar layer." To find out more on how you can download a free version of this product, visit their web site by clicking here: Google Earth - http://earth.google.com/ You'll also want to check out their blog post on this weather feature: Google Blog Post at http://google-latlong.blogspot.com/2010/07/rain-or-snow-now-you-can-see-weather-in.html   


  • NOAA's STORM PREDICTION CENTER (SPC)    Severe weather can occur year-round. NOAA's Storm Prediction Center (SPC) monitors potential severe weather situations across the country and helps to give both the citizens and forecasters in your area a heads-up of the potential of hazardous weather situations. The Storm Prediction Center's mission is to provide timely and accurate forecasts and watches for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes over the contiguous United States. The SPC also monitors heavy rain, heavy snow, and fire weather events across the U.S. and issues specific products for those hazards.

    Arlington - " THE BIG STORY THIS MONTH WAS THE RECORD HEAT. THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE IN WASHINGTON DC FOR JULY 2010 OF 83.1F TIED WITH JULY 1993 FOR THE WARMEST MONTH...NOT ONLY FOR JULY...BUT FOR ANY SINGLE CALENDAR MONTH ON RECORD. THE MONTHLY AVERAGE MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE FOR JULY 2010 WAS 92.3F... THE FOURTH HIGHEST...AND JUST SHY OF THE HIGHEST AVERAGE MONTHLY MAX TEMPERATURE OF 92.8F IN JULY 1999. SO FAR THIS METEOROLOGICAL SUMMER SINCE JUNE 1ST...THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE HAS BEEN 81.8F...WHICH IS MORE THAN ONE DEGREE ABOVE THE PREVIOUS WARMEST 61 DAY JUNE-JULY PERIOD OF 1994...80.6F. JULY 2010 WAS THE 5TH CONSECUTIVE MONTH STARTING WITH MARCH 2010 WITH MONTHLY TEMPERATURES MORE THAN 3.8 ABOVE NORMAL. THERE WERE 21 DAYS THE TEMPERATURE REACHED 90F OR BETTER IN JULY 2010. THE JULY WITH THE MOST NUMBER OF 90F OF BETTER DAYS WAS 1993 WITH 24 DAYS. SO THIS YEAR THROUGH JULY...WASHINGTON DC HAS HAD 44 DAYS OF 90F OR GREATER...THE MOST NUMBER OF SUCH DAYS IN ANY YEAR THROUGH JULY. THERE WERE TWO RECORD DAILY HIGHS SET THIS JULY...102F ON THE 7TH AND 101F ON THE 24TH. THREE DAILY HIGH MINIMUM TEMPERATURE RECORDS WERE SET...80F ON THE 7TH AND 8TH...AND 81F ON THE 24TH. THERE WERE THREE DAYS THIS JULY THAT REACHED THE CENTURY MARK... WHICH IS ONLY THE 7TH TIME IN JULY THAT AT LEAST THREE 100 DEGREE DAYS HAS OCCURRED. ON JULY 6...THERE WERE 7 CONSECUTIVE HOURS OF 100F OR BETTER RECORDED FROM NOON TO 6 PM EDT. THIS TIES THE MARK SET IN 1930 ON JULY 21 FOR THE MOST NUMBER OF CONSECUTIVE HOURS OF 100F OR BETTER. ON JULY 6TH...THE HOURLY TEMPERATURE REACHED 100F JUST BEFORE NOON EDT...THE EARLIEST THAT 100F WAS REACHED IN ANY CALENDAR DAY ON RECORD. HOURLY RECORDS GO BACK TO AUGUST 1921. PREVIOUSLY...THE EARLIEST RECORD OF A 100F DEG READING IN WASHINGTON DC WAS IN 1930 ON AUG 21 AT 1 PM EDT. JULY RAINFALL IN WASHINGTON WAS ABOVE NORMAL...THE FIRST MONTH TO RECORD ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION SINCE FEBRUARY 2010. " - [ + + ] - Notes from NWS Sterling, VA

    Bridgewater - " The temperature for the month was 3.23 degrees above normal. There were 15 days with high temperature of 90-degrees or above. In the last 2 months, there were 25 days with 90-degree temperatures. For the same 2 months last year, there was only one 90-degree day. The precipitation was about normal. The first part of the month was very dry. The several heavy rains during the later part of the month made up for the dry weather. The precipitation for the year is now 17.80, and that is 3.67 inches below normal. " - [ + -/+ ] - Comments from Clayton

    Centreville - Paul notes: " During the past four months from March thru June our average nightly lows have averaged 8.3 warmer than usual. For July the average was just 5.6 warmer, and very close to the 5.8 monthly average temperature. Snow shovels are now on sale over at the sunny Centreville Sea & Ski Resort & Country Club. - [ + + ]

    Chantilly - Russ reports: " July temperatures averaged 8.0 above normal and precipitation was 1.46" above normal. It was another record month. Most notable was the mean temperature of 79.6, which was the second warmest ever. A record high maximum temperature occurred on the 24th (98.4) and 25th (99.1). A record high minimum temperature occurred on the 7th (74.5), 8th (77.3), 9th (73.8 tie), 16th (72.7 tie) and 24th (78.4). Record daily rainfall of 1.26" occurred on the 29th. A thunderstorm occurred on the 13th, 16th, 18th, 19th, 25th and 29th. Much of our July precipitation occurred in the numerous thunderstorms. Please note, anemometer is currently partially obstructed from the Southeast " - [ + + ]

    Dulles - from NWS Sterling (KLWX): " THE BIG STORY THIS JULY WAS THE NEAR RECORD HEAT. THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE AT DULLES FOR JULY 2010 WAS 79.5F...TIED FOR THE SECOND WARMEST MONTH ON RECORD IN JULY 1994...AND JUST SHY OF THE HIGHEST MONTHLY AVERAGE OF 79.7F IN JULY 1993. SO FAR THIS METEOROLOGICAL SUMMER SINCE JUNE 1ST...THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE HAS BEEN 78.1F...THE HIGHEST SINCE THE PREVIOUSLY WARMEST 61 DAY JUNE-JULY PERIOD OF 77.8F IN 1994. EVERY MONTH SINCE MARCH 2010 HAS RANKED IN THE TOP-THREE WARMEST OF ALL-TIME AT DULLES...WITH MARCH AND JUNE BOTH BEING THE WARMEST ON RECORD. THERE WERE 20 DAYS THE TEMPERATURE REACHED 90F OR BETTER IN JULY 2010 AT DULLES...ONE SHY OF THE MOST NUMBER OF 90F OF BETTER DAYS THAT HAS OCCURRED THREE TIMES...1987...1988 AND 1999.

JULY RAINFALL IN DULLES WAS ABOVE NORMAL. " - [ + + ]

    Glen Allen - Lowell Koontz notes: " The only month that was hotter than this past July in the past 113 years was August of 1900 with a mean temperature of 82.9F that was only 0.1F hotter! July was extremely hot not only the hottest here but Richmond International Airport had a mean monthly average of 82.8F with the previous record of 82.4F in 1993. The only month that was hotter in the past 113 years was August of 1900 with a mean temperature of 82.9F. The July mean average temperature here was 82.0F a +5.6F departure when compared to Ashland's average and 4.9F warmer here when compared to last July. The 4.37 inches of rainfall for July was a +0.02 inch departure when compared to Ashland's average. The West Henrico Co. - Glen Allen Station was very lucky on rainfall as we had two thunderstorms few others received. July had 10 days with measurable rain. The 0.35 inches of rain that occurred in five minutes on the 29th was the fifth most intense in the past 25 months. July had 22 days with 90F or above temperatures and the airport had 24 and the 113-year record for July is 26 days in 1993. The maximum temperature for July was 103F recorded on July 24th which is the highest maximum temperature ever recorded here. The 105F recorded at the airport on the 24th and 25th also ties the highest maximum temperature ever recorded in July in Richmond. The airport has now had ten days in 2010 with the temperature 100F or more; the old record is nine in 1954. The high of 105F and low of 79F on these two dates yields a daily average temp of 92.0F which breaks the all-time daily mean temp of 91.5. Thus making these two dates the hottest ever recorded in the past 113 years for the month of July. The minimum temperature here on the 25th was 79.3F at 2349 or 79F that makes it the warmest night recorded at the Glen Allen area station since its start in July of 2008. On 23 nights the minimum temperature was 70F or higher. A wind gust of 30 mph on the 14th and 16th is not thought to be the strongest wind gust recorded for July. The northwesterly wind during the thunderstorm on the 29th was thought to be at least 35 to 40 mph but was blocked by trees in that direction. I plan to move the anemometer soon to a higher location. " - [ + + ] 

    Herndon - Randy sends these additional notes: " July was above normal for temperature and well above normal for precipitation. The temperatures ranged between a high of 99 and a low of 53. The average highs and lows were about 2.5 and 0.5 degrees above normal, respectively. We recorded 20 days where the max temp was 90 or higher. On the precipitation side, the month was 2.76" above normal with 6.49" measured, the most I have recorded in July in the last 17 years. From the 10th through the 19th, there were many days with scattered thunderstorms where some areas got lots of rain and others got little. My site was one of those that was very wet. The last 10 days of the month also saw a couple of days with TSRA; especially on the 25th when some severe TSRA went through the area producing some heavy rains and very strong winds. Fortunately, the worst winds occurred just north of my station. We have now had 24.07" precipitation for the year that is still over 2.75" below normal. " - [ + + ]

    Ladysmith - Danny adds: " July was the warmest month ever recorded at this location, where I have been taking observations since 2003. Temperatures were at or above the 100 mark on 5 days this month, including the warmest temperature ever recorded at this location (102 on the 24th), also a new record. Pop-up thunderstorms continued to miss the area for the most part, leading to locally imposed water restrictions and almost universally brown lawns. Rainfall has totaled less than 2" over the past two months. " - [ + - ]

    Portsmouth - " JULY 2010 TIED JULY 1991 FOR THE 6TH WARMEST JULY & THE 10TH DRIEST JULY IN THE DATABASE TO 1976 . July was much warmer and drier relative to normal Julys for the period from 1977 to 2009. The 3.22" of rain was 2.09" BELOW normal rainfall ( 61% of normal). The month's average temp was 2.2 ABOVE normal. STATION RECORDS: 4th - TEMPERATURE Minimum 59 [previous 61 1986]; 5th - TEMP TIED Max 98 [prev 1999]; 7th - TEMP TIED Max 100 [prev 1977]; 8th - TEMP Max Min 77[prev 76 1987]; 18th - TEMP Max 99 [prev 77 1977]; 20th - TEMP TIED Max 98 [prev 1977]; 23rd - TEMP Max 100 [prev 99 1995]; 24th - TEMP Max 104 [prev 101 1995] ALL-TIME STATION MAX TEMP; 25th - TEMP Max 104 [prev 96 1987] ALL-TIME STATION MAX TEMP TIED; 29th - WIND GUST 46mph [prev 28mph 2009] Frontal passages were noted on these dates: 7th (backdoor front from ocean), 9th, 14th, 25th, and 30th. Of particular interest was the convergence of two fronts over the area around 5 8pm on the 29th. A strong sea breeze moved onshore in Virginia Beach as a strong line of thunderstorms moved in from the northwest. The sea-breeze front created a most unusual visual presentation at this station with cumulonimbus clouds moving in from the ocean shoreline from ESE to the NNW; here, we rarely see CB coming in from that direction (sometimes with tropical systems offshore). As the fronts collided over northern Norfolk, the system combined and reformed, pushing SSE through Southeastern Virginia. A funnel cloud was reported by tower observers at Norfolk International Airport. As the systems merged and reformed, downpours and localized flooding was noted over the local area including the cities of Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach. At the station, the sky cam movie recorder was turned-on during the event. Playback of the video was quite interesting, even more so when the video playback speed was increased. At that time, rotation of the clouds within a mile to the north of the camera could be clearly seen. No funnels clouds were noted in that video. " - [ + - ]

    Moncure - Mac adds: " Basis for 30yr Temperature/Rainfall NWS Climatological Data is SANFORD (NC) 8 NE 1970-2000. July 2010 temperature-wise was little different from June. The monthly average high heat index value was 104.5. The heat index reached 128.2 on the 24th. High dew points and humidity made July unbearable for many hours of the day. The good news is that we had a "ton" of rain and we are now only .5 inches below normal for the year. Our lawns have benefited immensely but vegetable gardens just could not take the heat and an over abundance of rain. Cool nights were non-existent. " - [ + + ]

    Raleigh - Bob adds: " The summer continues to be hot with the average daily temperature during July was 1.2 degrees above normal. Along with the heat were thunderstorms, which several produced strong, sometimes damaging winds. Precipitation for the month was 1.49" above normal. " - [ + + ]
