8/25/2014 4:25 AM 0.01 M M M M 0.01 inch is what fell since 3:45PM yesterday afternoon (time of last report, which was a multi-day report). ...several large Thunderstorms with lightening visible North and West of this station in Minneapolis yestday afternoon and evening; looked hopeful, but other lucky people got the rain. Disappointing after endruing about 90 F with 75 F dewpoint that afternnon - very steamy conditions - no reward for our suffering. We certainly could use a good rain right now for lawns and gardens.
8/26/2014 5:00 AM 0.00 0.0 M M M Very busy - never logged on to cocorahs 26 Aug 2014 - hence entry next day.
8/27/2014 8:00 AM 0.01 M M M M Puzzled by 0.01 inch in rain, as ground did not look wet, and car windshield had no water spots, but metal trash can next to it had some water on lid, so decided reading is probably correct. Refreshingly cool (58 F), and rather humid. Closed house windows to keep humidity out.
8/28/2014 6:00 AM 0.00 0.0 M M M another beautifully cool late august morning - a few tiny clouds in the sky - 59F - the kind of morning that was common in Minneapolis before global climate change set in. Hopefully climate change permanently alters the jet stream so we get many more summers like this one (sorry rest of US, which is going to fry). Probably will come with bitter cold and deep snow in winter, but that builds character and helps limit the population growth - those who hate winter move away (yes, I don't like crowds and ridiculously high home prices) On the other hand, more likely the weather is going to flop around more and more - one year we'll cook as the jet stream meanders way north of us and gets stuck there; the next year we'll be really cool as the jet stream meanders way south of us and gets stuck there (like this year), and in the worst years, the jet stream will get stuck right over us and we'll have tornado after tornado spring, summer, and fall. Well, that's my understanding of global climate change effects in Minnesota... :)
8/29/2014 7:50 AM 0.17 M M M M Very humid at 7:50 AM. Earlier reading (something like 5 AM was 0.16 inch - so just 0.01 inch extra fell 5 AM to 7:50 AM. Fully, but fairly lightly overcast. Weather service website was indicating maybe over 1 inch to fall overnight - Mpls got skunked on rainfall yet again. I suspect it's a heat island thing - rainfall hits warmer Mpls air, temperature rises above dewpoint, rain stops falling. I've had good scientists argue against that viewpoint, but so far I'm sticking with it. :)
8/30/2014 7:00 AM 1.02 M M M M Wow! An actual good rainstorm at last! Seems like it has been a month since the previous one - flowers out front are very happy; garden hose is staying coiled up. Still quite overcast, but I think rain over for today. ...7:112 AM update - 0.99 was actually read about 5 AM without emptying gauge. I had view out window while working on computer - THOUGHT I did not see more rain. But, when I went to empty guage after 7 AM entry, I saw there was 0.03 inch more - have to edit my report.
8/31/2014 7:00 AM 0.02 M M M M Read gauge at 7 AM, but distractions on computer delayed data entry until now.
9/1/2014 6:55 AM 0.82 M M M M Observation really was at 6:55 AM. I got distracted (by email) before I could get to the cocorahs website. I had a look; very light rain has been / or maybe still is falling at entry time (about 8:15 AM) and there is another 0.01 inch in rainfall - but that will be part of tomorrow's catch report. So, sky overcast at moderate grey level (not dar) - some light rain / drizzle on and off, very humid, 66 F at this "station". Nice gentle rain overnight - a little lightning, nothing remarkable thunder-wise. Fabulous for garden flowers!

Wind blowing from NW - lightly gusty - pleasant flow through house windows - not enough to blow papers on desk around. In sailing, we call the minor gusts "puffs" of wind - they're good - you get some speed each time one comes, and you can see them coming due to the disturbance they make on the surface of the water.
9/9/2014 5:00 AM T M M M M Nothing much / few drops in gauge, but there were sprinkles on and off when I was driving about - had to run windshield wipers.
