They're going to be WAY off with the forecast highs today and tomorrow and the next day and... when the record coldest "summer" comes to an end. Hoping for some Santa Ana Winds by the fall.

Palm Springs was below 100 today. Oops!

I will be going there from this Saturday to next and hope to bring back some of the heat after I return.

I know many PNW people who would prefer 60s and rain all summer long. One of those is the #2 poster on Weather Forums. I am definitely not one of them. These winter lovers know who they are though.

Currently starting this summer off the same way we did in 2010 and 2011. Whether it will stay that way throughout the summer remains to be seen.

That HUMUNGOUS upper low is quite evident in Water Vapor Imagery

I am pretty sure what is happening this year is more related to the very low solar period rather than climate change.   

 

Lots of high latitude blocking and patterns are getting stuck for long periods of time.   

 

This would seem to suggest otherwise.

So according to that article we can expect more and more Really Resilient Ridges and Troughs as the climate changes. California is lucky though. Most of the mid-country will get increasing severe weather events from as early as the middle of February to as late as the end of June as they are stuck between the hot ridges and cold troughs that refuse to budge for weeks.

As for California some years will be extremely dry and others will be extremely wet with cold storms as late as the end of May or even the middle of June.

All of this could just be the climate change alarmists just trying to make their case again, but CA Weather Blog has been discussing the whiplash effect between extremely dry and wet years.

If the grand solar minimum is partially responsible, they are expecting this to last a couple of years, giving even more fuel for the climate change alarmists.
