Finally, summer is here!  We will flip the calendar into met Summer as grilling, boating, festivals, pool/outdoor parties and sun bathing season is upon us.  Will some folks roast in the heat, or not?? Who will continue to be drenched by heavy rains???  I'm fully anticipating a great month ahead that will be packed with storm chances and some stretches of very nice summery weather.  What may be in store???

 

Let's start first by taking a look at the CFSv2 and see what it's trends look like.  Cooler and Wet seems to be the theme.

The CanSIPS model comes out with it's new monthlies run later tonight.

 

 

CPC has trended for more widespread cool and wetness from the Rockies on East.  @Okwx is going to like this outlook!

Severe Weather Season has sucked so far.  Hardly any action to speak of.  Not looking to change over the next couple weeks either.  After the crappy winter a nice storm season was needed and it ain't happening.  SAD!

Here is the latest JMA Weeklies forecast and the new monthly precip forecast:

Pretty much looks like a decent June forecast with near average temps overall and periods of above normal rain.  Could get drier 2nd half of the month???

Interesting, the EPS from yesterday is rather similar to the CanSIPS for June temps...warm Plains, cool Lakes/South/East...

Nippy indeed last night with lows in the upper 40s and here we are in June. Great "BonFire" indeed. I had ta grab the blankets for crying out loud. Warming trend down the road as 80s are nearing by next week, especially late in the week. :blink:

Yes, it's looking pretty toasty here the next few days.  At the same time, models have really dried up.  The garden really needed some warm, dry weather, and they got it.  I hope we don't go too far the other way, though.


season snowfall: 10.8"

Getting that exact treatment in Marshall. Lawn showing signs of stress where it always shows first. I sure hope NOAA/CPC has much more of a clue than the CFSv2 on the moisture. CFS would be a disaster for MI since the past (2) weeks of "hit-n-miss" T-showers have almost entirely missed. Seems almost impossible to get avg anything anymore around my place. :rolleyes:

While I sip on my coffee on this warm/sunny morning in AZ (80F @ 7:30am), I have been trying to figure out how strong the LRC ridges may become this month and throughout the rest of summer.  The first "test" will likely be next weekend to see if they will hit and hold or be more transient (as I expect).

 

Both GEFS/EPS show a big ridge blossom near the Plains/Lakes?Midwest next Sun-Tues as a strong PAC storm targets the PAC NW pumping up the ridge to the east.  Since we are in the summer, the jet is weakening considerably and drifting north into Canada as the seasonal shift sets in.  

 

However, it is my opinion that we may be seeing a stronger than usual jet stream interaction this summer.  The LRC's pattern over the PAC was raging all last autumn/winter and I got a feeling with the colder waters still in place over the N PAC this will keep the jet energized over the summer.  

 

Here is the ridge on the GEFS...

gfs-ens_z500a_us_41.png

 

 

 

I do think there will be stretches of warm/muggy weather but not like we saw last year where we had continued hot/humid air throughout the season.  Drier air masses out of Canada will get tugged down more often than not this season which I think many of us will enjoy.

Quite the lop sided snow cover trends on opposite ends of the Pole.  N.A. is at decadal lows, meanwhile, Eurasia setting new highs....

I'll post some more maps from the long lead CPC SST CA forecast leading into late Autumn.  We are heading out into the mountains to escape the heat today in the valley.  NWS issued an Excessive Heat Warning yesterday through Tuesday for the seasons first official heat wave.  Supposed to top out close to 110F today!  Near 80F up at 7,500ft elevation near Seven Lakes, AZ.

"out west vs" of going the lakeshore - 2 great options to beat the heat! ;)

Things are definitely drying out around here. Had a small shower move through yesterday but haven't had a drop since the start of the month. Hope things pick back up soon, June is usually our month for severe weather and it has really calmed down recently. Unfortunately long-range models don't have that changing anytime soon.


LINCOLN NEBRASKA SNOW TOTALS:

 

 

13-14 : 0"

14-15: 0"

15-16" : 0"

16-17 : 0"

17-18 : Probably 10", so in other words, 0" ​ 5.5"

 

 

# of times it was too warm and ended up being 33 and rain during these years : 20

# of times the storm essentially turned into dust: 25

# of times the storm looked at Nebraska and was like "yeah, good joke" , then ran to Chicago: 50

My yard has averaged eight inches of rain in June over the last decade, a pretty amazing number.  This June is at least starting out very differently.

As long as there are cooler periods mixed in between...I'm game!  

 

ORD hit 90F a little earlier than normal this year...

We enjoyed a beautiful day up in the mountains yesterday.  As we approached Willow Springs Lake, there was smoke being blown in from a forest fire near Snake Ridge up on the Mogollon Rim.  It was an interesting experience to drive through the smoke and get to our destination by the lake.  It smelled like someone was having a bon fire and it brought memories of back home when I go up to Wisconsin.  I took a pic of the thick, black smoke across the lake.  It was initially being blown in towards our direction, but then a E/SE wind kicked in and it cleared out.

Heat is coming, first 90s of the season. Not sure if it will be considered a heatwave. I am forecasted to be 2 days in the 90s, but, a close call indeed.

I've seen GT Bay in the mid-40's water temp at 4th of July weekend. Detroit and downstate peeps came north with their boats fooled by the much warmer and longer spring wx downstate. Unfortunately, some dove off to their deaths via heart attacks. Had one cold water experience in East Bay and I'll never forget it! (was August at that). My dad helped rescue some dude who foolishly took his canoe out on Lk. Huron in April and capsized. This guy was maybe 60 seconds from slipping under when they got to him. Ya gotta respect the elements.

Perfect week of 70's for Marshall. Where you at Homer??

 

Meanwhile, my Inlaws were saying how crazy the weather's been over their way. (There's our active wx, lol). At the end of May, they had the worst windstorm since '98, then June 1st it snowed enough to briefly whiten the ground. Avg high for June in Moscow is 72F

Gorgeous outlook, other than a few storms on Friday, my forecast is a mainly sunny and warm one and getting warmer to HOT. Heatwave is possible in SEMI by the weekend.

KRMY hit 47º this morning, so up up and away we go. I like how ORD's graphic mentions humidity shouldn't be too bad. That helps a lot. Love me a 3-5 day heat wave. (in summer I'll add)

I could use a cold drink myself, lol

 

So, as I've squawked about, SWMI suddenly went dry (not dry counties-can still get booze) over the past month. Marshall's actually not as bad off as most:

This weekend will be two weeks without rain and we may not get much next week, either.  Add to that the upcoming scorcher.  We are going to need the second half of June to come through.

Folks in the Plains and Midwest may be flirting with the "century mark" on Sunday...Euro high rez showing pockets near 100F!

You can see where the much needed moisture over eastern Oklahoma has helped to keep temperatures cooler than surrounding areas. I love this season so far.

Just now read an article after posting that that said the exact same thing I did.

Latest JMA suggesting an active central CONUS for the most part this month...upper level pattern setting up a battle zone as troughs swing in from the PAC NW.  This is symbolic of this year's LRC pattern.

This is a neat map of the world being forecast from the JMA.  Antarctic looks mighty cold during their Winter!  Another big year for Ice Gains???

The Heat is on!

 

feature060917.jpg?quality=85&strip=all&s

 

 

 

Interesting history of 90 day stretches this early in the season...

 

 

 

 

CHICAGO

Since 1872, only nine years have had four or more consecutive
days in the 90s prior to the midpoint of June (on or before June
15). The most recent was 18 years ago on June 8-11, 1999. The
earliest on record was May 3-6, 1949, while the longest early
season stretch was 9 days from May 16-24, 1977.

Years with 4+ consecutive 90 degree days prior to June`s midpoint:
1920, 1921, 1934, 1949, 1956, 1962, 1977, 1988, and 1999.

It should be noted that early season stretches of just 3
consecutive 90 degree days are much more common. The most recent
was June 9-11, 2012.

Impressive heat is being forecast for DSM with back-2-back 100's Sun/Mon.  If this was July/Aug it would feel even hotter with mature crops causing transpiration of moisture back into the air.  I'll take my 105F/36F today and call it a day!

 

If this pattern cycles through in early August, I can see some impressive heat return again and a pretty large Anti-Cyclonic HP forming in the southern Plains giving the time of year.

Yep, but not the moisture :(

 

Actually saw periodic showers this morning, but looking back home in Marshall I'd call it another "tease event". Even if the gauge missed half, well you get the picture.

This heat wave will certainly dry out the region and I'd imagine the grass will start to turn brown in spots???

22 months in a row of above average temps after June is done for Omaha. Better get used to it I guess!
