Not the best time for fireworks. Super dry summer, 95 degree high temps and windy. Anoka county is currently flooded with grass and structure fires.

Murica!

I had an irrigation system put in back in May and I’m not looking forward to getting this first water bill after it was turned on.

I love how healthy the lawn looks but I have noticed an increase in thistle bush and am now seeing some mushrooms that I've never seen before. I would assume the extend heat and regular watering is causing that. It wasn’t something I was expecting now that the lawn is healthier than it’s been in a long time.

It rained here for 45 minutes or so. Didn't rain overly hard though. Was hoping we'd get a long, soaking rain.

Same here. I was hauling corn to town, and thought I would only get a load in. Hauled in a few more, and then the future radar said it would be pouring at 2, so I quit since I don't have tarps on the wagons. They also said we were going to get 3/4 of an inch today. Now down to 2 tenths, and we will see. :roll:

At least where I live in the east metro, today's forecast has been a dud. Barely enough rain here to make the ground wet.

I've lived in my house for 12 years, and my lawn has never looked worse. I have large patches of grass that got completely scorched from the long stretch of hot dry days. I have irrigation, and even that hasn't helped.

Have you increased the time each zone waters? My grass is green but some of my drier zones run for 45 minutes, every other day. And I have supplemented the driest spots with hose sprinklers in the worst areas This is about 50-75% more water than I normally use in June.

Water bill won't be fun to pay.

Yes. Corn I have in the bins that I have contracted at the local elevator for July delivery. About half of the crop I harvest in the fall I store and sell the next year depending on my needs for cash to pay bills.

Even 30 minutes every other day in a large part of my yard was leading to heat stress during the prolonged heat wave and I had to jack up the time.

I’m just starting to get a feel for what does and doesn’t work with the new system.

I've tried watering at night which can help greatly, but it leads to mold issues which make my grass appear brownish. The blades get brown stripes on them. My Kentucky blue grass just doesn't like it.

My next door neighbor waters in the evening all the time. He has a different grass variety and if has no issues. He also mows at a ridiculously high setting too (maybe 4+ inches).

I have tried everything... even giving the dry areas extra water with a hose and sprinkler. There are 2 patches in my back yard (both about 15' x 10') that are completely dead, and no amount of watering is bringing it back. I'm guessing I'll have to dig those spots up and replace with sod in the fall.

It has to be bad soil under the grass. My house was built in 1968, and the lawn was neglected for years before I bought it. I've worked hard to improve it in the 12 years I've been there (put in a sprinkler system, fertilize 4 times a year, etc...), but I can only do so much because the foundation for a nice lawn was never there. If money weren't an issue, I'd love to bulldoze my whole yard, put down about 4" of nice black dirt, and start over again.

I live in Eagan and that's basically the case here. It rained reasonably hard for 25-35 minutes around 8am. Basically intermittent sprinkles since, and every time I open the weather app the percentage of chance of rain goes down.

Rained before I woke up this morning, at some point, then some sprinkles here and there (Hopkins area). Just kind of a blah day overall.

It’s been raining steadily in Burnsville/Eagan area for a bit. But I did spend four hours cleaning/waxing my car Sunday so of course it has rained on me every time I’ve driven it since then.
I was surprised when I got in the car a little bit ago and the Twins game was on. Must be a small cell.

We had 2 tenths. Tomorrow will be interesting. 2 websites "predict" 8 tenths for us, the NWS says between 1/4 and 1/2. The local talking heads say 2+ inches... I will go with the NWS. It is a crapshoot.

Just curious, do you use regular apps or websites (TWC, Weather Underground, etc.) or are there specialized apps or websites that allow farmers to get forecasts targeted for your location? I have used GPLs resident meteorologist (my niece the misguided uw alum) for forecasts when we've had big groups at our lake cabin and she has been fairly accurate & wondering if something like that is available. I presume irrigation is expensive as hell plus not easy to deploy so accurate forecasting is like gold.

BTW, for anyone interested I highly recommend "Clarkson's Farm" on Amazon Prime. Yes it's often silly and irreverent like Grand Tour/Top Gear but the underlying theme of the show is the impact weather has on farming. You may recall last year in the UK they went from rains that led to massive flooding to a horrible drought and the series was filmed during this period. It offers tremendous insight as well as a lot of chuckles. As a product of a suburban upbringing and as a current urban dweller it was an eye-opener for me. Hail the farmer....wait......hail....horrible word choice.....Three cheers for our farmers!!

I just use NWS and DTN (neither of which have been worth looking at this year). There are companies offering custom forecasts for a fee, but I can't imagine that they would be any more accurate.

There are some subscription based sites that are more geared towards farmers, but I have never used those sites. I have about 5 weather websites that I monitor (along with the TV forecasters) and try to find a consensus among those. For me, wind speed and direction is an important factor when I need to spray, so that is an important items I look for. . Part of my issue is, that I live near the Buffalo Ridge, (Coteau des Prairies) and the weather here is really affected by it and most weather sites just use a blanket approach of the weather here, and the weather can be so different on either side of the Ridge (which I farm on both sides). I realize that predicting the weather is not easy, and normally don't get too bent out of shape when they are wrong. It is just funny when they say it will rain (75% or higher), and we don't get a drop.

As far as irrigation, there are not a whole lot of them in my area. I am not an expert on this, but some of the irrigation systems just draw the water from the aquifers under their land, so they don't have to pay for it. I recall as a kid when someone a few miles away put one in, the locals were concerned that it would use up all the water and not allow enough water for the local farmers wells. Now, most of the people who live in the country around here have "rural water". It is just like in the city, with a pipeline delivering water to our farm. Plus, I would not drink any well water these days with all of the chemicals that seep into the soils now. I cringe at thinking that is what I grew up on drinking as a kid, but the chemical uses back then was minimal.

All of a sudden NWS and DTN are now both predicting rain here tonight. 70% chance--3/4 inch. I'll believe it when I see it.

In Plymouth area, it's looked like rain at times, SMELLED like rain at times, but no rain today (so far).

The forecast for me on Weather Underground is a little odd for tomorrow. Just a 57%chance of rain with forecasted rain total of 1.5”.

That is a lot of rain predicted considering there is a 43% chance it doesn’t rain at all.

They had us for 1 1/4 for today. We have had .40 so far and the "heavy" rain has passed. So, I'm guessing we will end up with around a half inch.

Was hoping it'd downpour so much that softball would get rained out tonight. Seems less likely every time I look at the radar.

Seems like the heavy stuff went south. still hoping for decent rain today.

Forecast went from 2" to 0.75 in a couple of hours.... So annoying.

Looking at the severe weather forecast from the Storm Prediction Center, what it sounds like they're expecting is that after this current round passes through, later this afternoon into evening, along a line north of where that passed earlier will have re-development of possible thunderstorms.

Not sure what's going to happen the rest of the day, but a bit over 1 inch for me so far. (Looks like about 1 1/4, but I don't feel like getting soaked to do the proper measurement.)

Out here in the middle of nowhere we ended up with 1/2 inch. Sun is now coming out. The extended forecast for us shows nothing more in the next 10 days.

Our forecast from NWS was 80% chance of 1 to 2 inches. From DTN it was 80% chance of 1.5 inches. With a consensus like that you would expect it to be fairly accurate. We got .2 :censored:

That brings me to 1.3" since June 1. Long term average is 6.5".

Up to around 2.1 inches in Brooklyn Park just south of 610/252... after it passed, I went out and dumped around 2 inches from the gauge. Still need to go back in the morning to get the official reading for the day.

Pretty slow rain in the Plymouth area for most of the day, minus a short burst (20 minutes?) of torrential rain. I am relating to the sound of it on the roof of my warehouse building.

It wasn’t slow in my part of Plymouth. We had multiple waves of very heavy rain. Judging by the amount of water my dog was kicking up in the yard outside I’m guessing we got 1.5 inches at least.

That was a report from someone in the cocorahs network. Given how focused the heavy rain was, it's possible that the measurement site in question is just far enough from your house that they got significantly less.

You can zoom in on that to find the area in question. The locations shown are where the measurement was taken.

I'd be curious if you can find a gauge with less than 1.3" since June 1.

The crops are just money, but we've planted over 2,000 trees around the farm during my time here. A hell of a lot of work went into planting all them. We've got some CRP where we've planted blocks of Red Cedar for the deer and pheasants. Cedars are very hardy, but they are now dropping their needles. It would be a shame to lose them.

That 1.58 reading in Plymouth is basically .25 miles east of my house.

The 3.6 reading just northwest of it is maybe a 5 minute drive from home. That’s a big difference in what is maybe 2 miles as the crow flies

KFAN said it was coming from northern MN this morning. I was at Back Channel in Spring Park (Orono) until about 6ish, and it wasn't that bad at all. As I got within the 494-694 loop, it was like night and day.

Looks like the smoke is sticking around until Thursday at least.

I'm out near Waupaca, WI on their chain of lakes and it got very hazy suddenly at about 5:00pm. Got to the point it was a touch tricky docking the pontoon. Lots of docks in one small area. I was keying in on the color of the one I was aiming for, haziness made it hard to tell the different colors apart as everything went a bit sepia.

I am genuinely concerned for the future of this planet, with how crazy weather has been lately (and all summer).

That being said, it’s 53 right now where I’m at. Good thing breweries sell sweatshirts. :)
