    I swear, June, 2013 is whacked weather month. In June, 2013, according to Weather Underground, we had the following:
    • A high of 108 (which broke a record) on Saturday, June 8th, only to be followed the next day by a high of 79.
    • A high of 69 with rain on Monday, June 24th.
    • A 6+ consecutive days of temperatures above 100 degrees starting Friday, June 28th. I feel like I'm going to be mugged!

    You must be in my area- [real clue from link to weather stats]. (I am East of Sacto, in a nice almond grove). It's predicted to climb the ladder, starting with today, and hit 106 in a few days.

    Thoughts? Only that it's weird, but weather does that every now and then.....Still holding out on the A/C though. My girl likes it hot.

    We got more rain on one day in early June that we had all last summer (Jun-Jul-Aug). Temps have been in the low 90s for that last few days, but may only be around 80 for the next few days.

    Here in Iowa, it's been the wettest April, May and June on record, with wildly fluctuating temperatures.

    While one year's weather does not make a pattern, the additional moisture in the year could be an indication of the permanent presence of added water vapor in the air resulting from the warming of the seas. Scientists believe warming of the seas is in fact due to the added CO2 in the atmosphere.

    Here in southern Illinois it has been all over the place too. While we haven't hit the upper 90's yet, the humidity has been horribly high for this time of year. The last few mornings starting out in the upper 70's with high humidity and no breeze at all.

    Tomorrow is supposed to be starting out in the upper 60's topping out in the lower 80's and do that for about a week.

    Northern California and part of Oregon was recently subjected to a rare out-of-season "atmospheric river" (sometimes referred to as a Pineapple Express) so it isn't normal.

    Thanks, harsh, but is this week's prediction of five or so days over 103 normal or not so much?

    Be glad you're not in Las Vegas. The high doesn't drop below 115° until Tuesday.

    I'm in Fresno, not Vegas. I just keep track of Vegas because as hot as it is here in Fresno, it could be worse, like it is in Vegas. The low in Vegas finally drops below 90° on Wednesday.

    We had a series of small thunderstorm cells sit on us last night. 5.2 inches total in about 1:5 hours. The Davis weather station recorded max rain rate of 41.14 inches per hour at 7:40 pm!!

    We live on a fairly large lake so there's no danger of flooding (other than my basement), but there were several people rescued from cars less than a mile away.

    The earth is a pretty big place, and we haven't been keeping comprehensive weather records very long. I doubt that there has been a year in my lifetime in which some regions did not experience historic weather extremes and of course now, we have so many more measurement sites and so much more media interconnection that I am less inclined than are most to attribute these reported extremes to any pet theories of man made or man aggravated causation.

    I have seen the widely circulated graphs of earth average temperatures recorded over the last century or so, and while any plausible regression of those data points does exhibit an upward incline, we are now in about the tenth year of the fifth plateau along such lines, which I find difficult to reconcile with the trajectory projections that are the impetus to trillion dollar worldwide efforts to moderate global emissions, which necessarily will be paid for by the only country that can and will make such expenditures.
