Good Monday bloggers,

Before we discuss the weather, there has been a comet visible with the naked eye in our sky during the last week. The times of best viewing so far have been about 80 minutes before sunrise. Now, the best time is shifting to 80 minutes after sunset (sunset, 8:45 p.m.). Now, here is the trick. Sunday night it was only 5 degrees above the horizon. This evening it will be about 5-10 degrees above the horizon and tomorrow night it will be 10 degrees above and by July 19, Sunday, it will be 20 degrees above the horizon. So, each day this week it will become easier to see. It is over the north-northwest horizon. So, a hill looking north is the best chance for viewing.

Now to the weather. It is not been easy to describe the weather when you need rain, there are many rain chances and they all either miss us or give us the least amount.

Last night western Kansas to southeast Oklahoma saw some great rain with amounts .50"-2". They have had more rain out there the last 6 weeks than we have. That is most unusual.

Well, here we go again. We have one main chance of widespread rain the next seven days. We better get it, because our first heat wave of 2020 may arrive Friday.

Have a great rest of your week and stay healthy.
