The Comparison

Posted by Jake on 14 June, 2009

I know I complain about the heat a lot and I sometimes think it may get on your nerves. Well, I am sorry, but I will show you why. I will start posting my Florida monthly weather summary and then I will do a comparison post a little later to show you what it was in Kentucky that month; I will do this for 12 months.

Lexington, KY and Jacksonville, FL

Here is my Heat Key:

70-79 is WARM

80-89 is HOT

90-99 is VERY HOT

100+  is TOO HOT

May 2009

Average High: 74F(KY) 84F(FL)


Average Low: 56F(KY) 67(FL)


 Number of Days 90+: 0(KY) 9(FL)

Hottest Temp: 85F May 22&23(KY) 94F May 11(FL)

Lowest Temp: 40F May 18&19(KY) 61F May 2(FL)

Lexington was right on average for the high, but two degrees hotter then average for the low.

Jacksonville was two degrees above avergae for both the low and the high.

Both locations saw a lot more then average for the month of May.

It’s So Hot I Can See Stuff Growing

Posted by Jake on 23 April, 2009

It really turned out to be a hot day today, but not humid thankfully! My thermometer hit 94F for our high and it is in the shade no sun hits it at all. Our forecasted high was 89F, which was right for Northern Jacksonville. I feel like for an area so large there needs to be more weather station around the area, becuase the airport is always cooler. Myabe they could avergae together all of the weather stations data.

Anyway, I can actually tell a differnce in my Elephant Ear’s from this morning to now, they have grown! It is currently 91 at my house and no breeze from the beaches has arrived yet. It was foggy this morning, so fogy it blocked out the sun. I got some great picture though, I was really able to catch the right colors of the plants. I will post those picture soon.

Have A Great Day,

Be Safe My Fellow North-Central Florida Bloggers!

Posted by Jake on 13 April, 2009

These storms have already thrown down a lot of rain here. It is also really thundering so loud and the lightning is really bad! This is only the pre show too, this isn’t even the actual system. My weather radio just went off and said we are under a Sever Thunderstorm Warning until 8:30pm. We were already under a Tornado Watch until 2am.

Be Safe,
