Captain's Log

Happy Monday! :)

The heat-wave is peaking in the East today with a general cooling trend into the weekend. If you loved the scorching hot heat and humidity this weekend, you'll be less likely to enjoy the more typical and drier weekend ahead with a 15F drop in temperatures and humidity.

The 2-week outlook shows the overall pattern remains on the hot/wet side for the U.S. overall so enjoy any cool downs as they probably won't last.

June across the world shows the U.S. and Europe had above average temperatures while south of the equator tended to trend a bit cooler than typical. For the U.S. overall June was the 2nd hottest of the past 30 years and 13th wettest with generally average U.S. rainfall. The Eastern U.S. trended warmest/driest in 2 years while the Western U.S. trended coolest in 6 years, driest in 3. The coolest spot was in Eastern Canada where very late snow was reported during the month.


The Ocean temperatures have changed pretty rapidly in the past 30 days with what appears to be a "Modoki" El Niño (East based El Niño) developing and the waters off Africa have gone from way below normal to more typical.

We hope you have a great 4th of July week ahead! Soon to be 2.5 year old Angelina knows how to stay cool in heat like this - WATER...POOL...and more WATER. :)
