Happy Monday! :)
World recap last week (31 May - 5 June)
shows the U.S. trending 2.9F cooler than last year, coolest in 4 years but still 15th warmest in 36 years (above average). Rainfall was down 3%, driest in 10 years and 3rd driest in 36 years (much below average). CLICK ON IMAGES FOR A LARGER VIEW.
Even warmer trends across Canada which ranked the hottest start to June in over 36 years and driest in 12 years. Driest in 18 years across Europe and driest in 16 years in Brazil where a water crisis is on going with an extreme drought impacting their crops.
This Week (7-14 June)
across the U.S. is the #1 hottest for the second week of June in over 36 years trending +3.5F warmer than last year. This will be an exceptional week for hot seasonal categories like AC, fans, pool suppliers, water toys, Summer apparel and cold beverages. Rainfall continues below average trending driest in 4 years and 10% less than last year. This is really bad news for America's Western Corn Belt which was recently planted but now cooking with hot temperatures as well. Another major rally in commodity prices likely.
Next Week (15-21 June)
continues the hot trends across the Western half of the country while the Southeast cools off a bit. The U.S. overall is still +2.5F warmer than last year, warmest in 3 years and 8th warmest of the past 36 years. Rainfall looks to trend 8% less than a year ago and driest in 16 years, 4th driest in 36 years. Look for drought to rapidly expand in the Central U.S. Need to watch the Gulf of Mexico, SW Caribbean and Florida for potential tropical development.
For the World overall, the next two weeks show the hot/dry trends in North America and Western Europe.
An exciting event this Thursday morning in the Northeast will be a partial solar eclipse
starting at sunrise and peaking shortly thereafter.
