Shoddy Work.

Some of the folks who do this for a living want to give us a pretty good chance of rain sometime between now and later on, and some don't. All I know is that yesterday looked promising for about thirty minutes, but whatever upper- or lower-level disturbance that gave them rain up near the state line did not stay disturbing enough to deliver anything but clouds and breeze here on the Piedmont, and today feels more than anything else like a kind of reprise of yesterday. Maybe it looks slightly hazier or slightly cloudier out west and out north than it did this time yesterday, and maybe it doesn't. I'm not sure.

That's no kind of forecast, I know. But you've either already watered today, or you haven't, and if you haven't, you're not going to do it now, in the heat of the day, so just wait until evening and see what happens. Then, with that information in hand, act accordingly. I don't know how to tell you how to know until you know. Wait and hope, wait and hope.

In the meantime, friends and fans of weather, the ANYLF CultureDesk recommends this outstanding Randy Newman live show on NPR.
