Where has the heat gone?

Okay I know the heat is out west but people in my area have to be wondering what is going on. First we have the winter that never seems to end. And now we have a summer that really isn't much of a summer. So far for the month of July we have had 10 days where high temps failed to reach 80 degrees. Of the other 11 days we hit 80-81 degrees 6 times. Of the 21 days in the month we have been below normal 19 days. The two days that finished above normal we were at 1 and 2 degrees above normal. So far this year we have had ZERO 90 degree days. It is possible we may hit 90 today but then a big cool down comes starting tomorrow. After today we should have 8 or 9 of the last 9 days of the month with below normal temperatures. Some of the temperatures may be way below normal. If I am to believe the 10 day forecast on we will have 7 more days with highs below 80. That would give us 17 days for the month and would break the record set back in 2009.

Want to see what a difference 2 years makes? In July of 2012 we had highs below 90 only 3 times the entire month. There are times this month where the high temperature was nearly 30 degrees cooler than the high temperature back in 2012. We have also had a number of days where the high temperature this year was cooler than the low temperature back in 2012.

Is this going to be another brutal winter? Winter of 2009-2010 was pretty rough for my area. That came on the heels of a very cool July of 2009.

  • No 90 degree temperature today. And with that may have gone the last chance of a 90 degree day this month. Much cooler air coming. There will be a slight spike in temps in a few days but temps crash once again. It really looks like a fall pattern in the middle of summer.

  • Today we had a high of 78 degrees. That added to the record for number of high temperatures below 80 degrees this month. We managed to do it 16 times this month. Tomorrow is supposed to be 82 degrees so we shouldn’t be adding anymore to that record.

    We didn’t reach 80 degrees on 16 occasions.
    We managed 80 or 81 degrees on 6 occasions.
    We manged highs no higher than 81 degrees 22 out of 30 days so far.
    We didn’t reach 90 degrees at all.
    July 2014 will finish approximately 13 degrees per day cooler than July 2012.
    July 2014 will go down as one of the coldest July months on record.

    This month has been absolutely nuts. I slept with the windows open the other night and had to have a couple of blankets because the room got so cold. I had to close the windows late evening because the house cooled into the 60’s.

    More often than not it has felt like early fall this month. Why do I have the feeling we are going to pay for this?

  • Local weather just said that July of 2014 is finishing as the coldest July on record.

  • Can’t complain about that. Always nice when July is cooler.

    The most if not all humans live within the Chlorophyll process area of the earth, it’s also the area where oxygen is at ppm levels that human can breath without aids, and in truth its is quite small in area and in particular of altitude. It’s also the area where water is liquid or exists as a vapor, in the warm bubble of air we live in.
    That warm bubble isn’t static; it is significant influenced by the Earths tilt and our variable star, particularly at the UV end of the spectrum. With the Sun entering a significant down turn similar to the Dalton Minimum, the atmosphere cools rapidly at higher latitudes and at higher altitudes in the winter periods, which are much longer than each summer period. Once the excess heat gained during the recent Solar Maximum Warm period since Dalton, although it had a hiccup in the late fifties which the warmists are trying to hide from the statistics, is lost. Winters will become more savage and Summers less warm. Perhaps your cool summer is an early indicator of the Solar Minimum effect on the regional climate in the US.
