N California’s Turn To Bake But Turning Cooler E Of Rockies, Tropics Quiet, Carib Drought Worsens!

Over the weekend, temperatures climbed to new heights for June across eastern Washington with even one contender for a new state June record. Walla Walla hit 113 degrees Sunday which if verified, would set a new state record for June in Washington. A high of 104 in Spokane was the warmest here since all the way back to Aug 1961.

June 2015 will go down as the warmest on record for Seattle and countless towns/cities across WA.

While the intensity of heat eases over Washington and Oregon, the new focus of intense and record-breaking heat turns to Northern California where highs are expected to range between 110-117 in the Northern Sac Valley.

The MJO is entering a STRONG phase 7 and as stated previously, this is a cool phase particularly for the Plains/Ohio Valley.

As the MJO re-enters the western Pacific, convection and tropical development potential lights up while the Atlantic remains ultimately dead. Well it’s all about the sinking air and waves of Saharan dust blowing off Africa and choking Caribbean airspace.

The El Nino/Saharan dust favours drought in the Caribbean and I’m sure you’ll have heard all about the worsening drought in Puerto Rico.
