Mid 50's out here in the sticks this morning. IN AUGUST. Me like.

Living in the sticks has its advantages.  Being cooler than the concrete jungle is only one of 'em.

This has been a great summer.  We only had 1 week of major heat and even that was relatively tame by typical Memphis summer standards.  With the soil moisture still high, I don't see any September heat waves setting up as they have in former dryer summers.  I would be happy to take this every year!  It helps make up for the boring winter.

This summer definitely had some unusual stretches of very pleasant weather. The 5 day power outage in May was a bit much, but it could have been worse. All in all though there was a lot more time to actually enjoy being outdoors this year. Still plenty of humidity.

About 220 acres has burned on English Mtn.  Fire is 70% contained now.  Rains later in the week will hopefully reduce the short term dryness.

Irma goes bombs away, tropical storm to now 100mph category 2 at 11am EDT. Category 4 is likely by tomorrow night or Saturday morning.

I was talking about this this morning. If landfall were to happen, it would do the least amount of damage by hitting Houston. Resources wouldn't have to be moved and it couldn't do much more damage. All in all, I hope it fizzes out.
Earth transforms sunlight's visible light energy into infrared light energy, which leaves Earth slowly because it is absorbed by greenhouse gases. When people produce greenhouse gases, energy leaves Earth even more slowly raising Earth's temperature. http://www.howglobalwarmingworks.org/

I know that we've seen tropical systems explode like Irma and Harvey in the past, but it seems odd to have 2 systems behave so similarly to each other in such a short time span.  I really do hope that this turns into a fish storm; a second major hurricane landfall would quickly stretch our recovery resources thin.

The Eastern Seaboard from the Keys to Maine need to watch. Some models have an unphased Irma making direct landfall into Maine, which would be ridiculous.

I hear Irma looks pretty intense on the Euro 10 days out.

2004?  2005?


Put on my big snow boots and
I boarded the plane
Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
In the middle of the freezing rain

Snow up high
Won't you pour down over me
Yeah, I got some accretion
But I'm as blue as a boy can be

That's what comes to mind, although it's hard to believe that was 12 and 13 years ago.  There's also an eerie similarity to 2005 with a likely Cat 4 spinning in the Atlantic while the devastating hurricane that just hit is still a TD producing severe weather inland.

It's a long ways out but yikes at the euro 10 day Irma's position at the keys on its way into the GOM at 935mb

Bye-bye Summer 2017.  We give you props over your predecessor, and wish every summer had your disposition.

Looks like KMEM ended up w/ a temperature departure of -1.13 and a precipitation departure of +6.71. Although the Tom Lee Storm happened on May 27, I'm going to highlight it as the most memorable event of the summer here. It will definitely be talked about for years to come in my neighborhood. We still have tarps on most streets believe it or not. Hurricane Harvey's remnants were certainly memorable as well. And as we're all aware, the generally pleasant temperatures (by southern standards) were greatly appreciated. On a personal note, I'll always remember this summer as the one where I broke both my arms, but I managed to have great trips to New Mexico, Grayton Beach, and San Francisco, and thanks to a great trainer - I'm ending the summer stronger than when I had my cycling accident. This summer didn't make these times any less weird though.

June:
Avg Temp: 78.4
Departure: -1.2
Precipitation: 4.61
Departure: +0.98

July:
Avg Temp: 83.1
Departure: +0.4
Precipitation: 3.91
Departure: -0.68

August:
Avg Temp: 79.4
Departure: -2.6
Precipitation: 9.26
Departure: +6.41

Summer is alive and well on the west coast with some amazing record highs in and around San Francisco.  107F was recorded at the Napa County Airport, while 102 was recorded downtown yesterday.  The airport near Santa Rosa, a little north of San Fran, hit 110.
