Feel like the high desert out there. 96 degrees and the stiff breeze. Like I've always thought,  we have no idea what the extremes can really be here. 

The last people to experience heat like this in this region were probably native Americans who were still centuries away from European contact.

Must be a cyclical thing then.   Wheew!  I thought it might be global warming.

I wonder if there's any good way to approximate the return rate on an event this anomalous. With how much more extreme this is than anything else in the 150+ years of records you'd think it's at least a 1 in 1000 year event. 

As you said I'm worried about the damage this is going to do to the ecosystem after a record dry spring, especially after years of hot/dry summers, and there's still no clear end in sight to the 90+ stuff. I remember a few years back Dewey mocking people for suggesting the dieback we've seen in parts of the Sierras could happen here but that seems like a real possibility now.

86 here with a DP of 70. Feels pretty miserable! We’re closing the garden center right now and we will probably water all of our plants 3-4 times today. It’s already doing damage to many of our plants.

The ECMWF shows the dewpoints staying high... and then ironically the marine push brings in less humid air.

Also... that streak into the basin at the end of this loop is pretty fascinating.

Fantastic and fascinating loop. Thank you for sharing.

Guess we better enjoy today! 

ECMWF has been running about 5-7 degrees too cold for the Puget Sound region... so yeah.    That 112 for you is probably low.

Wow what a "marine push." It's still gonna be over 90F here every day with the EC's cool bias.

 

Also, we have now reached 90F+ for the 10th time this year. With plenty more in the pipe. Gonna be fuckkin brutal.

Does the marine push “bring in” more humid air, or prevent deep mixing of dry air?

Not sure... but the ECMWF shows a decent SW wind spreading inland across all of western WA on Monday night and continuing through Tuesday and still shows a high of 93 in Seattle on Tuesday afternoon.    Can't remember a marine push like that ever before.

Yup, the fact that it’s ever happened before means the climate isn’t warming and it definitely isn’t being caused by humans at all. Good catch!!

Unreal to hear these readings that look more like readings from New Orleans or Houston...  Uggghhh...

 

It's a pleasant 84° where I am in central Idaho...

Our garden is going through a massive growth spurt with this warm weather... of course I can provide water for the garden and I can't do that for the forest around me.  

First pic was on Thursday and second pic is right now.   Those are zucchini in the foreground.   They have more than doubled in size in 4 days.
