9/19/2021  AL-MB-72 ALMobile Moderately Wet General Awareness
We have had close to 21” of rain in the past 40 days. Ground is soft and the weather is quite humid. My humidor has a hard time staying below 80%. Even with he temp around 80, a little work outside will have you sweating. Skies have been mostly cloudy and the plants and grass are growing like crazy. Not much severe weather here, but lots of rain. Looks like will have have a front coming through this coming week and will give us drier air and sun…much needed.

We have had almost six (6) inches of rain within the past five (5) days. The ground is pretty well saturated and water is standing in low places. From what I'm seeing on the weather forecast we may have another day or so of rain before it can start to dry out. It is getting on to fall of the year and a few leaves have fallen from the trees. The temperature has been a little cooler but humid.

Peavine Creek is full and running fast. My woodpecker bird feeder has mold growing on it. The hummingbirds don't seem a bit worried though. They continue to fight for control of the feeders. Plenty of deer out and about, saw twin spotted fawns standing in the middle of the road this week.

Received a light shower yesterday, first PPT in 2 weeks. Looks to be an early end to the monsoon. All veg is in various stages of curing out and setting seed. Most ponds and small creeks have about normal moisture for this time of year. Moquistoes are horrible.

Conditions are near normal at this time. There have been a couple of brief rain showers this week totaling 0.48” and temperatures have generally been in the mid 80s for highs. Soil moisture is adequate for plants and crops and streamflows are normal but gradually falling.

Had been on the dry side, but this past week we've received rain- .50" last night.  
9/19/2021  AR-SL-35 ARSaline Mildly Dry General Awareness
After 4 weeks of bone-dry weather, finally got much-needed significant rainfall on Friday Sept. 17 that apparently was very localized to my immediate area. Although the heavy thundershower dumped 1.55" in only about 1 hour, the ground was quite dry & soaked it up. Lawn & landscape plants were noticeably rehydrated by the next morning. On Saturday Sept. 18 there was an additional 0.28" rain. On Friday I noted many trees of various species are beginning to change color; suspect water stress is prompting early seasonal change. Also noticed several oak trees in the area have completely brown canopies with leaves still attached. An oak in a neighbor's yard has turned brown & suddenly dropped all its leaves in a neat circle under the tree; this has happened over the past 5 days. Hopefully the forecast of additional showers over the next several days will hold true & we'll avoid the necessity of a burn ban.

Just off a 2-day event, over 2" rain, most accum. since mid-June. Yonkers creek actually making a little noise. The groundwater irrigation ponds for garden/yard had been dropping pretty radically before this past rain, but give things a chance to drain & they will probably come up a notch. All foliage nicely washed, redwoods in full fall color but no major leaflet drop yet (no winds). Saw first geese formation fly over 2 days ago, numerous termites flying 2 days ago (always a reliable rain indicator). Seems warmer/more humid in mornings but have to ck data. Garden starting to wane, even zukes. Sept. seems right on track: 2019 was 3.32, 2020 1.39, so far 2021 = 2.23 (but what's 3-yrs?)

Delighted to see the first significant rainfall arrive. .80 inches from the rain that began about 9:30 Saturday morning. We remain in Stage 4 conditions and it will take many more such dumps to recharge the ground water. One festival was cancelled due to the rain. The landscape certainly looks better with a nice wash.

Sept. 12-18, 2021: no precipitation but some moisture left over from rains on Sept. 11. Overcast to sunny, normal or near normal temperatures during the day; cool overnights. Oaks and chestnuts continue to rain down seeds but this will be a low yield year for each-- flowers were frozen or baked in April and early June and the unusually hot 19 days of over 100°F temps. during the summer; tree leaves are turning color and falling; Anna's hummingbirds and seed eater birds are very active at feeders; lawn grass is beginning to grow faster in the cooler weather; Luck Peak, Arrowrock, and Anderson Ranch reservoirs in the upper Boise River basin are at 14%, 16% and 35% of capacities; some lower basin irrigation canals and ditches are being shut down about a month early because of low reservoir capacities. Wildfire danger is still high to extreme in most foothill and mountain areas.

This week, my station received 0.03 inches of rain, down from 0.22 inches last week. Over the past 4 weeks, my station has received 1.99 inches of rain, but only 0.32 inches over the last 3 weeks. Conditions are currently Moderately Dry. All plants that aren’t being watered are extremely dry and wilted. It’s been hard keep my own porch plants watered because they just dry out so quickly. Unwatered lawns are completely brown and crispy. Trees are wilted looking, especially the younger ones. The soil is dry and cracked. Inappropriate and completely unnecessary use of leaf blowers and lawn mowers only makes the dust worse. Squirrels are very busy collecting nuts for the winter. There are few birds, besides the hummingbirds that compete for our feeder. The cicadas have mostly died. The hot and dry weather this week has lured people to the lakeshore where dangerous conditions caused one drowning and necessitated several rescues. We really need some rain!

Days of relatively warm temperatures with wind and no rain for over a week has resulted in a return to slightly dry conditions.

Menard Co., IL, September 19, 2021: It has been nearly two weeks since the last measurable rain.  
9/19/2021  IL-TZ-26 ILTazewell Near Normal It has been 18 days since I recorded any rain and I am uncertain what condition to report. Surface conditions are dry, the grass growth has really slowed down, and the pond level has dropped a couple of inches below the overflow. So Mildly Dry would be my call but considering that this is September and it is not that unusual to have a dry spell Near Normal would be a good call. So I will pick Near Normal but dry as my rating. The farmers are working non-stop on picking the corn fields while the beans are drying up nicely and we should see some of the fields picked very soon. The garden requires watering and I am still picking a few tomatoes, some peppers and broccoli. The cottonwoods have dropped most of their leaves and the burning bushes are starting to turn red all signs of fall.

Lack of rain again this past week has aggravated already dry conditions. Soil at the surface is cracked and split in several areas. Many plants are wilting or have dropped a good amount of foliage. These include rose of sharon, peonies, Viburnum, mockorange, lily of the valley, hibiscus, morning glory, day lilies, decorative grasses, hostas,and certain roses. Annuals are beginning to diminish as the daylight shortens but they too are struggling with the lack of rain. Some are being hand watered as are the container plants. No mowing was necessary this past week. Turf is for the most dormant and brown except for a few patches of green here and there. Even weed growth has lessened except in shaded areas. Most Trees are holding their foliage nicely throughout this dry spell as are yews, Alberta spruce, euyonomous, and boxwood. Primrose continue to flower without much in the way of attention as are the lavender and crepe myrtyl. Retention pond islightly below normal water levels. Water color remains a brownish green. Another flock of Canadian Geese were spotted at the water's edge. Some also were flying circling above. Grasshoppers and crickets are in abundance right now as are flies. Many flowering crab trees have dropped most all their leaves with the small apples clinging to the branches. Sunflowers also are nearly finished flowering. Goldfinches continue to feast on their seeds. Birds at the feeders and the bird bath were sparrows, house finches, goldfinches, starlings, mourning doves, and occasional blue jay. We are supposed to have some rain this week. Fingers are crossed.

We have had almost 10" of rain here so far this month, 2.5 times the PRISM September average already. The lawn is green and growing. Weeds and plants are lush. Soil is muddy and there is standing water in ruts in the woods. Small ponds are full. Animal activity normal. Overall I might call it Mildly Wet if we hadn't just emerged from dry conditions.

Might seem strange to hang a ‘near normal’ three weeks into a month that’s already brought us nearly three times the average (11.21” against 3.96”), but that seems right. Thanks to a bountifully wet last few weeks, this station now stands at 53.48” for the water year-to-date against an annual average of 49.31”. We’re finally seeing soil moisture such that absorption after a rain event allows for standing water in a few places along the bogs for more than a day, as it does in normal periods. Area water restrictions are still in place, deservedly, but it’s progress. After an early start on some trees, foliage is starting to turn more or less as it should. Wildlife activity is normal.
