August Looks Just As Hot As What June & July Has Been So Far!

Well I think we can all pretty much agree on where August is going when it comes to the average Plains temps! The intense heat focused right over the heart of the tinderbox ain’t going nowhere during August, in fact we may even see it equally as hot during this final meteorological month of summer 2012 as what we saw June, July if you can believe that.

This blowtorch is feeding off of the drought conditions. Drought and heat go hand and hand and so it may take well into the fall season before we see any true recovery towards normal this year because the drought will favour stronger heights aloft. Notice the below normal both on west and east coasts? El Nino’s reaction should be seen here and by October, no not September, but October should we start to see below normal temps filter into the interior Northwest from coastal WA-OR and this should start to chip away at those above average anomalies over the N Plains, Midwest.

The worst of summer is already in the rear view mirror for the Northeast and for the Mid-Atlantic though I don’t think DC and Baltimore are completely out of the woods in terms of 100-degree days.
