It could be worse....we could be suffering from a drought which in my opinion, would be much worse.

June 1st this summer I began working outside on getting my 1965 Monza coupe back on the road which is also right about the time we started getting regular rain on the weekends so I can sympathize with you and do agree it is beginning to be a bit of an inconvenience.

Y'all got understand. The scientists says it is all caused by climate change. Yep climate changes everyday. What do you know, government Grant paid scientists got it right (sort of). Our tax money wasted on those grants for sure.

In part the rain on the weekends is caused by the large volume of particulate matter released during the week by all the cars, trucks, trains and etc related to our commutes. Rain needs particles in the atmospher to form drops. Like the old system of "seeding clouds".
(and yes its very annoying with all the car shows getting canceled)

I think blaming on cars, trucks and trains exhaust particulate count in the air is a red herring. There is just as many vehicles traveling on weekends as weekdays.

The scientists have got come up with another reason for rain on weekends. That particulate count one has been blown out of the water for a decade at least. America moves on it wheels every day and uses it boats everyday. We run lawnmowers, chainsaws and weedwackers which put in more particulates than today's auto engines. Never mind that factories are now working 7 days a week compared to shutting down for weekends 30 years ago.

It was one of those summers, between the hot humid days and the rain it was the least miles I put on the Vair and the bike in many years. I was glad my farmer neighbor had great crops, but I spoke with today. The great crops all over brought the prices down, so net, net

I think caraholic is right. Drought IS worse. And here in the south west we are in SEVERE DROUGHT.

I have no idea where the idea came from that the government paid to study why it rains on weekends???????

Am I just not reading the intended humor right?

Climate change is over centuries, weather is what is happening now.

Think it is a waste of money to study the climate? All this pie in the sky thinking and studying is used by the military. Need to be ready to fight, need to know what we need to fight in in 50 years wherever on the globe or further.grinning smiley

Now to get rid of the tongue in cheek which flopped.

Here is an article to read and a small extract of it. It is basically in your head as rainy weekends smashes your hopes and dreams for a fun weekend.

[www.businessinsider.com]

If it seems like it's especially rainy on the weekends these days, here's why

Some of the most recent research-based myth-busting on this subject was done by weather expert David Schultz in 2007. After studying more than 200 weather stations across the US, Schultz and his colleagues ruled that there was no discernible pattern of particularly rainy days in a week.

The processes through which aerosols form clouds are complex, and pollution is not the only thing determines when rain falls or how long clouds stay in the air. Aerosols can also build up from all sorts of natural solids like dirt and salt. Weather patterns also change based on other factors like the jet stream and whether clouds form over land or sea.

The real reasons for your rainy weekends

Pendergrass proposes a different reason why it can feel as though it's raining more on the weekends.

"I think it's more psychological than meteorological," she said.

When we're out of the office and want to be spending our days at the beach or in the park, it can be very disappointing to see rain in the forecast. Those strong feelings can make weekend precipitation more memorable, even though there's no true increase on Saturday or Sunday.

Here in the Pacific North Wet, we had the pleasure of an exceptionally dry summer.
Only recently have the rains started, and for the most part, the really heavy rains have all been late evening, and wee hours of the morning.
Only had a few frosty mornings too.
Overnight temps only down into the mid 40s for the most part.
Been Lovin' it!

An interesting article on the subject. They argue the data shows no pattern in the past but since the 1980s one may be developing in the Southeast US only.
They give some ideas why but conclude its a very complicated subject.
They study that I remembered and cited above is clearly not conclusive.

In the70's the SW had serious drought.... then the "El Nino" came and stayed for 3 years... dams overflowed for the first time, etc..

Same thing happened in the early 1900's.... but San Diego blamed it on a "Rain Maker" thay had contracted with... wouldn't pay him because of the floodings..
