The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
-Psalm 19:1

Do you know that God controls the clouds and makes his lightning flash?
-Job 37:15

My fair weather friends...

I would like to start today's blog entry with a note of recognition. I started this blog a little over a year ago, and over the course of time since starting it, I have made some of the most WONDERFUL FRIENDS through the blog, through my passion for weather. I have had uplifting experiences, splendid adventures, and I have learned so much about weather and about life... all resulting from my little weather blog. Well, it's the instrument, but I know God is at work here. I am grateful for all the fabulous friendships that have blossomed in my life. I treasure each of you (old friends and new), and I am truly honored to have you in my life. I have been blessed. My garden of friends is in full bloom; thanks be to God.

Shall we take a look at the weather??? Ah, yes, slight chance POPS at 20% through the week ahead, which basically means that hit and miss stuff with nothing really substantial should occur. I talked to the folks hosting the barn party, and they are willing it not to rain... I wonder if I could invoke the powers of the Dewvoid to help out with that. A strong area of high pressure will be making its way on down as we approach the weekend, bringing dry air and breezy weather. Are you ready for this? I woke up this morning to a temperature reading of 47 degrees... yep, them there are Dewdrop-cicle temps. Though I advised it the night before, I gave a more stern warning to Mini-Dew against her wearing short sleeves and a skirt. She heeded my advice, and actually grabbed her jacket walking out the door. Now, any of you northern readers out there, realize that southern blood is much thinner than that of those up north, so 47 feels more like freezing temps to us... The prblem comes in at this time of year when there is a 30 degree span between the high and the low... yes, folks, it is layering season. Now, I just have to resolve Mini-Dew's Halloween costume... spaghetti straps... sheesh. I love Kelly's day by day AFD... according to him:

FRIDAY...THE WARMING TREND WILL CONTINUE AS HEIGHTS RISE AS THE UPPER LOW RETREATS FURTHER NORTHWARD. MODELS ARE MUCH DRIER TODAY AS THE SURFACE BOUNDARY REMAINS NEAR THE EAST COAST. WITH SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE BEGINNING TO BUILD DOWN THE MISSISSIPPI TOWARD THE REGION BY THE AFTERNOON... WILL SEE CLEARING CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE DAY IN OUR NW ZONES. WILL SEE NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES IN THE AFTERNOON.
Tropically, a little moisture accumulating in the highly sheared Caribbean Sea should fall apart, but the guys made mention of some model activity. Looks like the models are wanting to put something tropical out there for us. I know we can certainly use it. Here's what they had to say.
LATE IN THE PERIOD... THINGS COULD GET EVEN MORE INTERESTING AS SOME OF THE GLOBAL MODELS (25/00Z EURO INCLUDED) ARE BRINGING A TROPICAL SYSTEM INTO THE YUCATAN CHANNEL. SINCE THIS IS PROGGED TO OCCUR AROUND WEDNESDAY EVENING...THERE IS MUCH UNCERTAINTY IN THIS SYSTEM.
It is important to note here that Hurricane Season is not over. Though things seem to have settled, anything can happen, and it is important to not let down that guard. Late October has seen the start of many tropical cyclones over the years... Clearly, it's not over till it's over.

Have a fabulous Thursday!

  1. You have a very cool blog Dew. I enjoy reading each day. I started reading it about this time last year after you left a comment on my blog. I think it's time for you to upgrade to your own domain name. Your good at keeping your content fresh and alive each day. Time for a DOT COM?

    Chilly 40's! Nooooo cold weather yet! 68F here this morning, which is on the chilly side for me. Yeah a wimpy warm South Florida weather kind of guy.

  2. Wow, Jeff! That is an awesome compliment! Thanks. As for DOT COMming it, I wouldn't even know where to start. Do I have to pay for that...? Now starting the dewdropweather.com support fund... Your generosity would be much appreciated. You are among the friends I was talking about. Thanks for reading.

    I'm with you... not into frozen twinkle toes.

  4. Dew, It has been cool getting to know you as a friend through the blogosphere as well. ‘They’ always say that you have to be a friend to make a friend. You have certainly ‘been’ a friend to me.

    Maybe I should check into this .com thing……

  6. 47!? I am so jealous. The low seventies and high 60s is all we managed here and it still warms up to 80s in the day. Layering temps indeed.
