Dew points are quite suspicious, maybe taken near a coastline?

Also dew points are mixing vertically meaning initiation is very unlikely.

Quite the opposite. It was near Omaha... I think slightly northeast.

I thought the irony of GFS showing 85F dew point was amusing tongue.gif

And actually, that could be quite a prolonged heat wave as the ridging anchored over South Korea and southern Japan looks to stick around for a 5-7+ day stretch...
[attachment=356845:gefs_z50..._npac_37.png]

Another thing to point out is the enhanced Pacific jet. Raging Pacific jet is a phrase more suited for winter, so I'll leave that there, but I believe a stretched/enhanced jet also supports an incoming warm spell.

Pretty spectacular sounding to see after the heat wave we just had. Cold front really did the job... absolutely no instability in a July sounding. 0.4" PWAT is almost a fifth of what it has been. Edit: just checked, that is a daily record low.

What a summer it's been already. Still no sign of it letting up for a prolonged period of time in the next 10-15 days.

Will probably be another heat wave (potentially major) a little after mid-July if Hurricane Maria strikes China

Another hot one today. Got hotter than the forecast. Up to 95F today... 2nd straight day of 95+ degrees. Dew point was around 71-73F at the time, making the heat index 103F-105F.

That's actually a 103 degree differential. tongue.gif

Peoria, IL hit -16F in January and 97F in May giving a 113F differential.

Have seen it a few times but very rarely check anom maps to know for how long. I did see them in spots in late winter and late spring when we had some warmer times. I just didnt think the model had the spatial gridding to accomplish that.

Yup, same. I don't check temps on GFS that often so I don't know how long this has been going on. Caught me off guard because I didn't think 13km could catch it, also wasn't sure if GFS's physics were good enough.

Anyone know if GFS got an upgrade recently or something? Never seen urban heat islands showing up on the model like this before. Maybe a recent upgrade, or maybe it's an old upgrade (i.e., after last summer) and I've never seen this signature before because it only shows up in the summer for some reason?



Here's a sounding in Cincinnati where there's a +5F temp anomaly



A sounding just a bit north of Cincinnati where there's a -2F temp anomaly



Notice the first images latitude was 39.25, the second is 39.5... so not that much further north, maybe a county or two.

Happy to change highest temp of the year from 94 to 96. Still hoping we can make it to triple digits but I'm not getting my hopes up high.

Edit: just realized... we hit -7 in January... 96 in July... that's 1 degree away from being a 100 degree differential. mad.gif

A nice ridge is going to build over the central latitudes of the US. A strong jet stream will exist on top of the ridge and disturbances may roll through the area, which may spill over to east or northeast quadrants of the ridge. Feels like a good setup for MCSs.

and i remember some folks who thought the cold pattern during the spring would never break and it would be a year without a summer rolleyes.gif

this week of heat and humidity with no ac has taken its toll. can't wait until fall when temps are back in the 50's and 60's

laugh.gif Thankfully in the future we can use this year as an example of how a persistent pattern can literally flip.

This pattern has been pretty impressive. But I'm not ready for it to be over yet. Not ready to go back to long sleeves and coats.

I saw the most classic, textbook multicell thunderstorm today. It was great. You could clearly see the dissipating thunderstorm, which was clearly raining itself out, and the new thunderstorm... a lot like this

Airport recorded a 92 after the slight rain cooled air. Then it dropped off again with more rain.

Mid-70s dew point. Definitely felt it.

The high temp overachieved by 8 degrees... or at least I'm pretty sure the forecast high was 84.

Got up to 92F by 1PM today before the clouds and storms rolled in. Really was only a matter of time.

Hey Cliche, would you mind seeing how many 90+ days we had last year?

I saved the tally I kept from last year. I saved the tally from 2016 too, but I used KHAO which is frequently warmer than KCVG. Needless to say, I trust CVG more than a small airport in the middle of semi-rural Ohio.

Current watches/warnings as of 1AM eastern/12AM central



Most recent observations. Still 90 degrees in eastern MN as of Midnight. That's absurd. Honorable mention is the upper 70 dew point in Illinois. That must feel nice.

Would have been ironic if yesterday's event happened today. Today is the anniversary of the 2012 Derecho which I believe is in your sig.

Yes it is... 6/29/12 started as what we now call a marginal risk for most of the areas impacted. The Mid-Atlantic didn't even have a shot at severe storms according to that outlook. Hoping we get a surprise event this summer.

If North Dakota was more populated I'd say we have a shot of reaching 1000 severe reports today once all damage is accounted for. Currently at 606 with an MCS ongoing in the moderate risk.

The moderate risk is for 36,700 square miles (49.7% of the state) in which 225,000 people live (29.8% of the state)

Didn't see that huge swath of wind reports coming. Just a reminder that this kind of thing can happen with relatively short notice... especially with this kind of pattern
