While not nearly as bad as the summer heat in August, this is getting downright ridiculous in my opinion. This historic summer isn't going down without a fight.
We are only about a week and a half away from yet another BIG record going down in flames. I'm of course talking about the number of 90 degree days in a single year. With the pattern shaping up, this will be within reach!
Also within reach, a few daily high temperatures. Right now, the computer models have highs in the mid 90s over the next few days. Starting Saturday, the record high is in the upper 90s to 100 degrees and they were set just 5 years ago in 2005. I remember it very well. Everyone thought the summer heat was over and it came roaring back. I would not be surprised to see one or two of these records fall over the same time period.
I don't think any of the tropical systems out there will have much if any impact on our weather in the short term. However, I have noticed the GFS keeps trying to bring in a strong system into the Gulf late this month. Is it the model playing games or is it really seeing something? We'll watch!
