Maybe, Maybe not. It was pretty spotty.

Everything looked wet.  Yes, the coastal showers make for thin streamers of rain.

try rubbing two sticks together maybe the extra heat will cause more water evaporation and it will rain ...btw...the scouts have a different view of the the 2 sticks theory!

East coast seabreeze had a speckling of activity on the radar around 11AM yesterday as it marched inland. Little cell dumped on us in NE Rockledge by the river.

I dug up two zones of our irrigation last week and re-ran the lines to new locations for more efficient coverage while our drought-tolerant landscape is getting established. Pulled one zone out of an area that will no longer be irrigated. That effort should bring rain. No trencher. Used a spade and tunnelled around and under all major oak roots. PITA, especially going through the remnants of the septic drain field where there is more root mass than soil. Hopefully the trees are happy for the consideration.

Fingers cross for today through Thursday.

.DISCUSSION...
...Better Rain Chances Daily Today Through Through Midweek...

A more favorable setup for development of afternoon convection
continues to evolve as a series of mid level disturbances moving
across the lwr MS Valley and the SE states will combine with deeper
local moisture, ample surface heating and surface boundaries for
showers and storms this afternoon and into the evening. The morning
sounding @ XMR shows a notable increase in column moisture over the
past 24H with just under 2 inches PWAT. Light sfc winds will allow
for the development of a defined east coast breeze along with local
boundaries near larger bodies of water. A westerly steering
component developing to winds aloft will favor the middle to eastern
portion of the peninsula for movement of aftn/eve showers/storms.
Higher coverage amount wl be across the I-4 corridor east to Volusia
Co and the Space Coast late today. A few storms may become strong
with gusty winds, frequent lightinng and small hail.

Highs will reach the upper 80s to low 90s with lows in upper 60s to
low 70s tonight.

Bleak. Monday looked just like most of last year with the seabreeze collision sparking convection along the I-4 corridor with very little making it back to the Brevard coast.

Today I'm seeing dewpoints in the mid-60s with a lot of high overcast blowing in off distant storms. That isn't a recipe for much hope today.

Hyping rain feels like hyping a swell these days.

Rain since at least we have a shot at THAT this week. After Thursday we can start to PFS!

I got a trace of rain this Tuesday afternoon. Not enough to soak thru the mulch. But, something. Rain buckets caught some so can use that to water my jaboticaba.

Uh...does cowbell work for rain? I own one. I can beat the living shit out of a cowbell if needed. I'll do it in the morning and see if it works. Thanks for the advice.

I saw a jaboticaba at Leu Gardens this year that I really wanted but we live on a sand dune. How hard it is to keep those happy on "excessively drained" soils as our soil is described in the soils map?

I'm going to keep hunting for large flower paw paw to fill out our fruit section.

scombrid, I put mine on the AC condensate drain and it loves life. I have another one, a red, that is at the bottom of a downspout, which gets considerably less water (especially lately) and it has even produced fruit! Both are very sheltered which keeps salt off them (1000 ft from ocean) and serve to keep a lot of the rougher winds off them, reducing evapotranspiration. I have had to add an acidic fertilizer to the red to make it happier. It responded instantly.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

Jaboticaba, especially when young and newly planted can not tolerate any drought. Plus, need good water. I only use capture rain water on them (which has been a struggle the past month).

I pretty much try to water them at least once every other day, if not daily. Well water will put them in slow decline and death.

NEED MORE COWBELL....


National Weather Service Melbourne FL
931 AM EDT Wed May 24 2017

.DISCUSSION...

...ENHANCED RISK FOR SEVERE STORMS THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING...

Threats will include
frequent lightning, heavy downpours with local ponding of water on
roadways, hail, potentially damaging straight-line winds, and/or an
isolated tornado or two. The present watch box could get expanded
further south later today/tonight. All of this expected shower/storm
activity will be aided by a large upper trough over the Deep South,
greater than normal jet stream energy this far south/this time of
year, increased moisture, surface heating and a weak cool frontal
boundary just north of the area. Storm motion will be from the
southwest toward the northeast at over 40 mph. Multiple rounds of
convection this afternoon/evening could bring beneficial rainfall on
average of 1 to 2 inches across ECFL with some locally higher
amounts possible by the time this system clears all of ECFL by
tomorrow afternoon.
