Moisture increase/heat decrease but Western US cities record hottest June 1-Jul 11th period

Written by on July 14, 2017 in Summer 2017, United States of America with 0 Comments

You know it’s been a hot first half to summer 2017 in the West but it’s actually been the hottest June 1 through July 11 period on record for Las Vegas, Reno, Phoenix, Tucson and Salt Lake City.

With a slightly weaker upper ridge and further east position (Plains), there’s moisture increasing humidity but decreasing temperatures as well as increasing the thunderstorm potential. Risk of local flash flooding.

Still hot on the Plains this weekend.
