Finally! Nice since Monday here. The weekend before we were in the North, nice there as well.
And forecast says it will be nice until next Sunday! Yeah! One week of real spring before the rain comes back.

In the Eastern and Southern parts of Germany it was terrible! Heavy rain with floodings.

Hot today here. 10 minutes ago was 105F. Breeze from ocean reach up river to here, now only 103F. Humidity unmeasurable. Has been low 20% for week.

105F in the shade -- that day was HOT. A dry hot wind was blowing hard too. Humidity was in single digits. I watered the veggie starts that morning. That evening they were very thirsty again. I noticed there were very few mosquitoes! Previous evenings there had been clouds of them figuring to eat me. They haven't returned. I'm guessing they didn't survive the heat and rapid drying of habitat. Not that I'm complaining. Laughing

Back to 50F nights, fog/mist mornings, days 85F in the Sun out of the wind, strong wind from over Pacific is chilly 50F Wink

Pretty fine during the last days. Not too bad actually. They say it will be hot next week.
Hope the thunderstorms will stay away!

Finally raining, after about 4 weeks of dry season.

Weather extremes here. Last week saw 9 inches of rain over 4 days. This week temperature has been over 100F for past three days, expected to continue into next week. Meanwhile there is flooding northern part of mid-west and northeast, with record high temperatures getting recorded in the other half of the country. Shocked

Right now is 96F in the shade, still getting hotter, even as strong breezes blow from over cold ocean -- anywhere not getting that cooler air is truly baking...

Down here in Houston, TX, which is on the same latitude as Cairo, Egypt, it's predictably hot. 104F as I type this. We're supposed to be entering a cooling trend starting tomorrow. Humidity is 56% right now, which is high for this temperature range. The reduction in temperature over the next few days will probably be accompanied by an increase in humidity, which I can really do without.

Too cold for the turn June/July here this year. And too much rain for my taste.
But not too bad. It will be pretty nice in the next days they say: hardly any rain, sunny, a little cloudy, 21 to 25C.

Continued heat wave here, with 100F two days ago, 102F yesterday & 88F all night long. Weather began getting dangerous last night, with hot air from south mixing with cooler ocean air mixing overhead, forming thunderheads, & flowing east. I was surprised last midnight by big raindrops falling from starry sky(!) and sounds of distant thunder. After a week of high temperatures and low humidity, the forest is big tinderbox -- I hope no lightning strike fires! Just yesterday, 19 of the top best most skillful front-line forest fighters, called "hot spotters", were killed in Arizona when wind changed unexpected. Rest in peace.

So it has been cloudy. Sunrise here about 9:32 sunset 15:25.

So someone at west coast saw sun today, took a photo of it and send to national television. And they showed it.

Confused

hot?


PostPosted: Tue Jun 24, 2014 8:07 pm    Post subject: Reply with quote

Hot all day out in the sun, otherwise very pleasant here in the forest, with distant ocean breeze reaches to here with some cool in the daytime, warm air from below rises to here at night. Very Happy August is usually hottest month here...

More concerning is drought.

Weather forecast changed since yesterday!:

Exclamation well spotted!

Only reason I can think of for upside down gauge is the code that draws the spectrum can draw it only from low to high frequencies.

I was confused too. How can an area of the Pacific no further north than Vancouver be at -50C?

Stormy weather! Plenty of cold miserable rain and wild wind the last couple of days,I was up early enough to catch the sunrise before the sun disappeared. Taken with the macro tak and K-01

infrared (not visible) imagery here...

2:22pm local time, 38C 18%RH, windy

The satellite image shows a huge area of heat in the west half of the country, overlaid with clouds, tropical moisture flowing from the Gulf of Mexico.
