chance of thunderstorms, that is.
Yeah, right. Weather Underground amuses me with this little .gif.
There's nothing on the radar, so the most that we can hope for is a convection thunderstorm. They're predicting 96/72 for today, which is a whole lot better than the 101 we suffered through yesterday. As counterpoint, at 9:40 a.m. local, my heat monitoring instrument showed 94 degrees on my shaded patio.
This is a standard summer weather pattern. In Louisiana in the summertime there's always a 20 percent chance of a late afternoon thunderstorm. We might get a half-inch of rain, at Momma's house five miles away, she only hears the thunder. Or vice versa. Summertime rain around here is a very local event.
