Well, here's our weather story for today from this afternoons AFD...

  CLIMATE...Today the Tucson airport recorded the 54th high
  temperature of 105 degrees or hotter this year, breaking the 
  previous record from 1994 for the most in a calendar year.


Not only, last I checked, this is the driest monsoon in recorded history at TUS, as we are now in technical extreme drought. Tropical influence is suppose to greatly increase our rain chances this weekend. This will most likely be our last gasp til the winter rains. Guess we'll see.

So closeth out summer...at least in climatological terms.

How was your 3 months? Warmer than normal? Colder? Drier? Any memorable storms, remembering that Iowa deserves our thoughts still.

Somebody can start a Fall Thread now.

"Hot" of the press... Pun intended. And I thought last year was bad. ](*,)

It's been hot all summer and wet, too.  The farmers got a lot of hay this year and probably will get one more cutting.

So for here until the end of October it's highs in the 80s with afternoon and evening thunder showers.

Our local weather history illustrates the vagaries of using any individual season, or several seasons, as indicators of 'trends'.

The Omaha/Valley, NE WFO is bemoaning the fact that their precipitation is currently way under their 'Summer Average'.



These graphics also illustrates the extreme localization of weather data.  I think that to draw generalized conclusions from such information is to stretch credulity beyond any reasonable limit.  After 30 years such trends might become significant climatologically.

Is it Sept. 4th or June 4th? Another record in the books for today as the all time monthly high temp for Sept. goes bye-bye. I briefly touched 112F.
Rain? What's that?

I saw that you guys are back in the frying pan again.
Cracks me up how they say Labor Day is the end of summer.
Yeah, right.

This is my 30th summer here and I've watched records be set time and time again (not just officially, but my obs as well). AFAIC, "man-made" global warming is crock, but climatic cyclical changes are not, and we're in one here. Topping on the cake? The monsoon was an epic fail...by far the worse in my time here.
