Got down to a chilly 57F this morning. I had to get up and close the windows in the middle of the nite and then, grabbed a light, Summer blanket, if you can believe that. Absolutely gorgeous weather here for this time of the year. Highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. Cannot beat this in late July. Just wish, we get a little free water from Ma Nature. For the year, my area is running about 3.50" or so BN.

When I lived in Klamath Falls, OR I'd leave the window open with lows in the 40's. I consider any low over 55 to be warm. lol

Well, what do we have here...another battle shaping up in terms of the MJO.  The JMA heads into the NULL phase while the Euro briefly takes it into Phase 5 which is a very Hot phase for the central CONUS.  Who wins???

The JMA...

JMAN_phase_51m_full.gif

The EURO...

 

ECMF_phase_MANOM_51m_full.gif

 

Yesterday's Euro Weeklies touch Phase 5 but then quickly back into the Null phase...that explains why it torches the Sub Forum for a good 10+ day period starting next week into the middle part of Aug, but then cools the eastern half of the nation mid month onward towards Labor Day.

EMON_phase_51m_full.gif

 

Is there a timely end to Summer for most of our Sub???  The data continues to point that way and the establishment of the All Mighty "North American Vortex".  Boy, how many years in a row has this been happening up in Canada??  #climatechange

Thing about those RMM plots for MJO is they’re not filtered for low pass or CCKW activity so they sometimes don’t pick up the MJO accurately.

Upcoming is more of a wave-2 signature in the tropical VP200 as opposed to a clean MJO, but the standing wave position across the IO/Maritime Continent is one that favors a hot pattern across the CONUS at this time of year. So hard to bet against that in August.

Would need a WPAC MJO/low pass for an early end to summer, and subsidence has dominated there all year (as evidenced by the historic lack of WPAC tropical activity). Hard to see that changing with La Niña dominating, but we’ll find out soon enough!

It was a cool night in parts of Michigan. Here are some of the lows that dropped down into the 40’s overnight.  In the UP Doe Lake was the coldest at 37. Stonington and Spincich Lake 41  Wakefield, Champion and  Kenton were at 43.  Several other locations were in the 45 to 49 range. In lower Michigan Alpena was 48 and Pellston and Mio were 49.

Signs are pointing to a pretty significant heatwave to open up August.  We shall see.  Either way it looks to be hot here in Michigan.  Probably our hottest week of the year from August 3rd-10th time frame.  Still a ways out to see where the pattern goes.  All the models are warm.  Of course the GFS is ridiculously extreme per usual.  It's like that model goes into overdrive every other run to the  after 7 days out.

I’m sorry to hear that.  
Its a heck of a battle.  

I watered like crazy today. The bill will rival the nat’l debt.  
I’m now putting out raw pecans and more water for the young momma squirrel.  I think she may have lost her babies.
She’s  terribly thin.  

The struggle to live is palpable right now.  I’ve watched her all spring.  I refuse to lose her at this point.  Mockingbirds have relied on the water too as have lizards.  

I'm becoming the local font of survival.  
102* officially unless it jumped up.  
Damned heatwave.

The DP levels have creeped up this morning and its noticeably more humid 69F/67F.  It was a "Terrific Tuesday" and another slightly BN day (-3F).  Might get some showers/storms later today but not really expecting to see anything.

On a side note, Lollapalooza starts this Friday and nature could't have timed a more better weekend of weather.  Just perfect conditions along the lakeshore with slight lake breezes and temps in the mid 70's.  Literally, perfection...IMO, this is prob the best weekend of weather setting up for Chicago this weekend.  Over the years, I've seen flooding rains that tore up the fields and also the July Heat/Humidity.  I think last year the event also had a banner year of weather.

Did the Euro just cave to the JMA wrt the MJO???  It appears so...it's no longer showing a Phase 5 scenario, so now we shall see how strong the Heat will build later next week.

The official H/L at Grand Rapids yesterday was 79/57. There was no rain fall and a total of 68% of possible sunshine was reported. So far the overnight low both here in MBY and officially at GRR has been 61. The current temperature in MBY is 62 with cloudy skies.  There is a chance of a few showers today and tomorrow but not a great chance. The weekend looks pleasant with mild temperatures. Later next week there are hints of some very warm to maybe hot temperatures.

Vicinity rumblers passing by, so far the airport hasn't heard any (I now question their overall quality as a weather observation site), but there's definitely been some thunder over the last hour.

75 after a low of 71. Dark skies.

Hopefully my area gets some rainfall today because after today's potential, it remains sunny for the remainder of the week. Temps warm up too, into the 80s and 90s return next week, w/ the possibility of a heatwave developing, coming from the West Coast (FYI: Seattle in the 90s again today, 100s inland). Tip: If you are on the West Coast and wanna cool off, head on over to "Coos Bay." What a difference. Highs there in the 60s today and low 70s tomorrow. Anyway, it gets hot by early August and for many on here as well. We will see if that occurs though.

Note: Atm, it is 75F under mostly cloudy to partly cloudy skies. A tad humid as well.

Filtered sunshine and humid this AM. Started the day in the low/mid 70s, now into the 80s as of 1030AM. Will hopefully stay out of the 90s today thanks to convection.

FWIW: My temps have been lowered for next week. Yesterday, they were being forecasted to be in the 90s and today they are back down in the 80s.

Interesting how MJO teleconnections to middle latitudes change even from week to week.

Looking at phase-1/phase-2 in early/mid August, the signal across the CONUS is quite warm. And grows warmer from phase-1 into phase-2. In fact it’s one of the warmest signals in the database. 😶

Week 31/32 (Aug 9-19) for phases 1-2, respectively.

I'm sitting at 2.93" of rain the last couple of days. A nice break from the hot and dry weather that looks to be back next week.

Its going to get sticky next week hopefully the heat is short lived.

Late July and early August is the hottest time of year in the PNW, and it's really interesting how a lot of the late July daily records are still from decades ago. Yesterday's 102 is from 1928 in Klamath Falls. Some in August from 1992 and the 1970's still stand. 

The dailies that have been broken or matched in the last decade happen in the first half of summer.

Crazy heat for some, especially for places that aren't used to this out west.

Why do I have the sense that the heat is building into the center of the nation. You may be in for a stretch of heat.  This isn’t over by a long shot.  
 

102 today.

Yeah I've only seen 100 degrees a few times at my last place.. 
July 2 2013, and June 27-29 2021.

Medford will get them a little more often. Nothing like Phoenix though.

Well, they say misery loves company but I’m not inclined to say so.   Sorry for the trouble guys. 
Texas is prepared generally for this. We’re used to heat in July/Sept. 

But the PNW?  Medford 111?   I had that here last week. It’s brutal.  Between the La Niña and the crazy jet stream it’s just a loser of a summer.  
I’ll have to take out a 2nd mortgage to pay my water bill. Fires are a daily possibility.  

This isn’t my first summer with these temps but I hate them.  The human suffering and animal death really bothers me.  
Most in my area put out extra water for strays and wild animals. And shelters reach out to homeless.  
It’s a battle every day here.  

We’ll see this through Sept.  We’ve had very hot Octobers.  Guess we’ll see how conditions begin to stack up.  

Opinions??

My grass is somehow still green, It has unfortunately turned brown in some areas, especially alongside roads.

We had one case several years ago that there was a "November heat dome".

It appears right now that the only way to stop this in Texas is a tropical cyclone

Well, they say misery loves company but I’m not inclined to say so.   Sorry for the trouble guys. 
Texas is prepared generally for this. We’re used to heat in July/Sept. 

But the PNW?  Medford 111?   I had that here last week. It’s brutal.  Between the La Niña and the crazy jet stream it’s just a loser of a summer.  
I’ll have to take out a 2nd mortgage to pay my water bill. Fires are a daily possibility.  

This isn’t my first summer with these temps but I hate them.  The human suffering and animal death really bothers me.  
Most in my area put out extra water for strays and wild animals. And shelters reach out to homeless.  
It’s a battle every day here.  

We’ll see this through Sept.  We’ve had very hot Octobers.  Guess we’ll see how conditions begin to stack up.  

Opinions??

It is sure rough down there w/ this intense heat you guys are suffering from. Wish a TS or even a TD can come outta the GOM and drench you guys a bit. Hopefully, that would cool the temps temporary. More importantly, give ya some needed water. Does swimming in the GOM help at all, or take cold showers everyday. I know water temps must be very warm. I would move farther north, if at all possible.

Not sure how you cope w/ this crazy heat in TX, but, wow. That is too much for me to handle. Sometimes, when temps up here in S MI get to near 90F w/ humidity ( real-feel being @ near 100F or so), we are all going nuts, let alone 111F you have dealt w and the constant 100's.

My area has been very dry as well. Running a good 3.50" BN for the year. Not sure, but this Summer has been free of any T'stm's. I only had a strong one back in June, which produced a strong winds, pea size hail and lightning. Dry and AN temps have been the rule here in S MI thus far. No record highs by any means, just slightly above average. We've had some cooldowns from CF's on occasion, which made it very comfortable for a couple of days. No real hot temps at all so far. Lets see how August goes.

Interesting how MJO teleconnections to middle latitudes change even from week to week.

Looking at phase-1/phase-2 in early/mid August, the signal across the CONUS is quite warm. And grows warmer from phase-1 into phase-2. In fact it’s one of the warmest signals in the database. 😶

Week 31/32 (Aug 9-19) for phases 1-2, respectively.

I haven't  had a legitimate  severe thunderstorm in 2 yrs.  Quite a few downpours last summer. Very little  lightning at all!!! Feels so odd. We did have 3 severe  warnings dec, march, and one recently  none of the 3 gave me more than  .20 they were warnings because  of 50 to 70 mph gust!   Just no significant  convection  or lift here for long long periods of time, doldrums, dead. Why?

Same here. This Summer has been free of any t'stm activity and not sure why either. Like you said, "Odd." I had only 1 strong storm back in June and that was it.

@Bryan1117, did you break the seal??

Picked up .15” of rain last night from the showers and thundershowers that rolled through, we could have used more rain but it was nice to get something.

Hoping that we can get a bit more rain tonight (40% chance right now). After tonight it looks like another dry spell is upcoming for us here in Eastern Nebraska.

A bunch of smaller storms started forming again in central KY. I could get something before sunset if this all holds together.

KFOR has 2 highs reaching 108°F late next week, I thought this was done and over with! 

It seem to my perception that Oklahoma is the center of this heat dome.  We’re 4* less but you seem to be consistent with the higher temps.  
This has to wrecking the State.

DC has still only dropped below 70°F twice since June 29th. Cool nighttime lows have been tough to come by in recent years, especially in summer.

Muggy evening, low 80s currently with dews in the mid-70s.
