DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE 2012 SUMMER CONTEST. DETAILS IN THE POST BELOW THIS ONE.
I teased the idea that temperatures could cool down with rain chances on my facebook page and this is the response I received from Daren Bolen, "Todd, if you can make that happen, I will name my next child after you". I'll take him up on that however someone who knows Daren said this, "Ummm, Daren Bolen is my brother in law. His wife (my sister) had her tubes tied almost 9 years ago. How's that gonna happen? Lol."
It's the thought that counts, right?
Anyway, all humor aside, we will have a mini heatwave this Memorial Day weekend with NEAR record high temperatures. Here are those records...
Saturday 98 (1964)
Sunday 96 (1964)
Monday 96 (1962)
Boy the 1960s set some hot records! The Saturday record will be difficult to break, but the Sunday and Monday records have a better chance at being challenged.
Now onto the possibilities down the road. Let's face it, the deeper we get into late spring and summer, the more difficult it becomes for fronts to penetrate far to the south. However, it can happen! Many times, it's not so much the temperature that comes down, but the humidity levels. The high sun angle this time of year can warm us up rapidly. If we can get some clouds and rainfall, that would really do the trick in holding down those readings.
THIS IS ABOUT A WEEK DOWN THE ROAD SO MUCH OF THIS CAN AND WILL CHANGE, BUT LET'S HOPE THIS ACTUALLY PANS OUT!!!!
Check out some of the model data below...
|Even the European model shows the front moving through late next Thursday into Friday with an area of refreshing high pressure building in from the plains at the surface.|
|HPC's manual progs show a cold front driving all the way to the Gulf Coast. IF this verifies, it would wipe the high heat and moisture out of the air!|
