Cloudless blue skies, and slight SE breeze and a forecast high of 100 today. But it's a dry heat. :dance:

Currently 57F with a forecast high of 69F, mostly sunny and calm.

I'm sitting in my office so it's 72 degrees all day long. Don't have a window so don't know what it is like outside.

It's quite warm today, but there's another wild swing by Friday, with daytime highs dropping 20 degrees.

A weird May. Many, extended unusually cool periods. And lots of wind. Today, another 3-4 inches of wind.

Somethin's happenin' here with the weather, on our tiny blue marble.

Okay - you keep giving wind measurements in inches and it's confusing me. Most people measure wind as a speed - mph, kph, mps, etc. What are these "inches of wind" that you keep referring to?

I live in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. We receive very little rainfall here. So, we instead measure wind in inches.

That's all you have to say? Physicists, pfff. I would have guessed that you'd take some interest in explaining. There's an interesting question on the table.

I think the measure (inches of wind) is really measuring dynamic pressure due to wind speed and it's inches-Aqueous or Inches-Aq that is actually being measured in an instrument. It's the dynamic pressure, due to air movement or wind, required to suspend inches of water in a tube. I don't know what the instrument looks like. This is not static pressure eg atmospheric pressure being measured. This measure appears to be most often used with big Church pipe organs where the air pressure, or wind, is required to make sounds in the pipes. I would guess that there is (or one can derive) an equation that relates Inches-Aq to wind speed. Do you have a table of inches of wind vs. wind speed, Goose?

Raining here. Grey. Yechh.

The tool to measure inches of water is a monometer. Easy to make. Board, ruler and clear tubing.

80 degrees and mostly sunny with a light breeze. Perfect for grilling stuffed pork chops for supper.

Manometer. So you're agreeing with my answer? Some of it is guesswork and a bit of physics.

Do you have a table that relates inches of wind with wind speed?
I imagine that if you make a monometer it has to be calibrated, right?

It is only a figure of speech around these parts.

I have been having several interesting questions on the table and don't always have time to sort through all that come across my plate. In this case, I was trying to identify as a "near neighbor" and that not all around these parts use that quaint phrasing--- as such, I'm not familiar with the background. I did a brief search on it and found no details. I did not find info in CRC either. Cest le vie.

Thanks Ed. The 'U'-shaped tube with water came to mind as part of physics but I figured an instrument would be more sophisticated.

After an unseasonably warm Memorial Day weekend (upper 70s to low 80s), we have returned to a much more seasonable mid 60s with occasional showers.
