Doppler Disappointments

Windy, 80 degrees, very overcast and cloudy.

This is what I've been tracking all summer.  Not just for a month or a few weeks, but since mid June.  The last 60 days have shown clouds and precipitation hovering near us, but it never arrives.  It's always light precipitation (green color on doppler) and when it gets to the Litchfield hills, it breaks apart, sometimes delivering remnants of rain to the north of us and sometimes regrouping to the south.

This doppler shows what's happening today, August 15.  All day it's been cloudy and windy, with this system to the west of us.  It hasn't really moved much by late afternoon, but is breaking apart.  No rain from this one.  Again.
