Our “cool and wet” period for summer hasn't last long, though it certainly was very wet. 10.46″ of rain in 7 days and it's raining again this morning. -But, it may not last. You remember what this is?
This anticyclone, high heights create an intense heat wave, especially for thouse right under the center of the high. Last year, it started spreading into our area, but for some reason it sank just about 100 miles farther south and I was put into “the ring of fire,” or where all the MCSes ride along the edge of the heatwave. It rarely got into the upper 80's after June. I hated it. I think it may move in and stick this year, but it will be close. If it shifts south my area will probably have to deal with similar conditions that created the flood of '93. Hopefully not! What do you think? (Please tell me no more rain!)
