Thank you. Regarding storm accumulation option, I don't have anything yet because I haven't downloaded it or anything else yet. But I'd certainly want it.
Gotcha I'd do my homework to make sure when you pay it carries over to your phone and vice versa. I can't believe there's no longer a free option with storm total rain.

When you click on the link in my post you should see a small picture of the Chicago radar on the right, On that page click "Weather Analysis tools, then Satellite and Radar in the dropdown. That brings a US satellite map up. On the left side you should see the words "Nexrad Radar" with composite radar and dual pol nexrad under it. Click the one you want and the Chicago radar loads. Inside of the radar on the left there are 6 buttons. Moving your mouse over the top one shows the words "radar selection". Click that and the map should show up with all the radars on it.
Thanks! I just did this and was able to access that map that can be clicked for any radar site. At the site, I was able to see a very up to date still as well as a couple of hours animation. The only thing it lacks that I want is rainfall accum. So, this is much more than I had before and a big help. If I later decide to, I'll try RadarScope so I could see accum.

It looks like RadarScope Tier 1 has storm accumulation per the screenshot @NickyBGuarantee posted.
Honestly idek if I’m in tier 1 subscription I just bought the radar and haven’t paid anything since and still get an insane amount of features .. including the storm accumulation buttons 🤷🏽‍♂️

To my knowledge, you must purchase the $9.99 phone app to use on mobile. Tier 1 ($9.99/yr) is what I have. More than adequate. I believe it is another $19.99 and a separate subscription to get the PC/laptop application.

The last 15 years must have been very hot because Raleigh is only running a degree or two below normal. June is pretty much normal in Raleigh and 2 below normal in July so far. Not exactly way below normal.
Yes , also July is over 2 below normal . Part of it is that the last 15 years have been hot but summer is also more stable . +/- 2 degrees over the whole summer is pretty big for summer at least. Not like winter where deviation is greater .

Has Dallas had a 100 degree high yet?
Nope. Only three 99*F highs back on 6/13, 6/14 and 6/17.

The average total number in a season is 20, and the average 1st 100*F day is on 7/1.

EDIT: Even with the last week of July ending on a "hot" note, DFW may still end up below average for the month (departure as of yesterday was -2.2*F).

Interestingly enough, dewpoints are still in the low 70s and have yet to mix out (as of 2pm).

That probably means official highs will end up falling short of what's forecasted. But in terms of the heat index, it probably won't make a difference.
