So, let's review the last three severe threats we have had for NC.

5/18 into 5/19 the SPC has us under a level 2 risk. Nothing happens and they lower the risk. Then we end up getting damaging storms overnight into the morning of the 20th when not under any severe risk from the SPC.

5/23 we are under a level 1 risk and no watches. End up getting multiple severe storms and tornadoes confirmed in Charlotte and Durham with damage.

Last night there's a tornado in Iredell County before a watch comes out. This morning we were under a level 2 risk and a tornado watch. Had some severe storm warnings, but the storms were not as bad as they were on 5/23 when we were under a level 1 risk and no watch.

These are just the facts. Not sure why stating the facts makes me a weenie.

Not even 90s today but way too hot and humid for my taste. The next four months of furnace weather is going to be like a slow torture.
Been getting digits by the boatload at the pool this past weekend from girls and getting drunk the last 4 days. I’d say summer is treating me even better then the last several summers so far

Yes it is. I agree completely. I've been counting down the days since February when we have had spring like temps ever since. Fall cannot get here fast enough for me.

If you keep counting down the days of your life you’ll run out of life real fast ! Living for a brief 3 months of the year is really limiting yourself . Enjoy summer . Besides your in forest city , not that hot up that way and your close to some mountains to cool off by! There can be joy found in summer .

I hear ya. I don't take one day for granted at all. Lived here my whole life 39 years here in Rutherford County. I love this area. It's my home. I just enjoy fall and winter the most and there such short lived around here in the southeast as you well know. It is what is around here. Living here in the shadow of the mountains here in the southern foothills it does get pretty hot and humid and last usually from March through the end of October around here Wish i could move further north to enjoy more cold and snow but this is my home. I enjoy me some good summer days also but could do without the humidity most of the time but I still try to enjoy it but working outside in the spring and summer is tough with the heat but im used to it by now. I do try to get up to Chimney Rock and the Lake Lure area a good bit and do some fishing in the Rocky Broad and enjoy the park, town and hiking trails. Beautiful area up there and not far up the road from me and it is a little cooler.

I'll say it this way; Fall weather cannot get here fast enough! Only 91 days till met Fall; but of course more like 120 days till we start to feel more like it.

I know man. That's the way i try to look at it to. Sounds like me and you are on the same page with this heat and humidity. I was doing yard work yesterday morning from 6am to around 9am and i looked like i was drenched with a water hose from the humidity after the first 45 minutes of being outside in the coolest part of the day.

Man the gfs and euro aren't depicting anything close to the level of drought relief we need in Eastern NC
This really shows the spread in rainfall for the year; hard to believe so many on the eastern Carolinas have only seen 10-15 inches, with some spots only seeing 5-10! I am in the yellow and closing in on 30 for the year; as is much of AL and MS. Crazy spread.

Here you can really see the cutoff in Eastern sections, in the year to date percentage of normal.

Between 16 and 18 here depending on which station I believe. Either way had to dig something up last weekend soil was drier with depth which isn't ideal. We could really use a couple multiple inch events close together to really wet deep.

With last weeks rains we had closed the deficit to about 3 inches but are now further behind at 5+ inch deficits again.

Yep, US Drought monitor actually has that area labeled SL (short and long term impacts).

19 here for the year (last weeks rains played a big role in that total), less than ideal but on the "higher" end for this area

Yeah we keep kicking the can and avoiding a big westward expansion of the drought conditions and a worsening of the existing conditions which is nice but not ideal. I don't think we need anything as extreme as a hurricane or big stalled ull to erase the drought conditions yet but these hoping you hit the few storms along a front days aren't helping
