As of 3:30 PM, I can report it's 111 deg. F (43.9 C) in the shade here in the Sacramento, CA suburbs. Looks like I'll be on water duty later today!💦 I can see the local mourning doves panting in my backyard. In this broiling heat, I made sure there's plenty of water out for the birds and beasts.

Basically this was the same temperature today in a part of the Anza-Borrego Desert in SoCal.

112F Sunday Torch Fest at 2:54PM, w/ a blast Furnace breeze thrown in to make 112 heat even more enjoyable, lol..  Some buildups over the Rim / White Mountains ( East of PHX. ) and down south, east of a line from Nogales to Tucson but no storms yet..


Some current #'s around town

A firecracker of a 4th shaping up across state 48 ..Heat, and heat - related advisories aren't going anywhere either, at least through Friday, possible they're extended again  thru the upcoming weekend / start of next week.

With that said,   While meager, and slow to build in, it appears moisture may start to increase across the state toward the end of the weekend / start of next week..  aside from the heat, next biggest threat looming may be from any thunderstorm activity which fires up across the mountains / S.E AZ since most of those storms will be dry ...until moisture builds in deep enough to promote wetting rains.  Something to watch as we start the transition process..





Some selected Monsoon start dates, using the " Need 3 consecutive days of 50-55 Deg. Dew point readings " standard, and the resultant season total for both Phoenix and Tucson ( In that order ) Green - Blue = Above average.  Red Orange yellow = Below.  While a late start generally signals a dry season, this isn't a rule which is set in stone.

We'll see how close we come to some of the later start dates this year.  *** Average start date ...most years where the season has started ( 10 years ),   is July 3rd,  Yesterday *** 

There are two other start dates in which 6 years are clustered on each date:  June 28th, and July 8th.   Tucson records go back to 1895. Phoenix records start in 1896.  Pre- July 3rd start dates are underlined.

Over 100f on all thermometers today.

I checked a graph of each thermometer and the highs here aren’t quite legit (direct sunlight or other issue causing a spike.) The first two highs were really around 102f and the third was 99-100f.

Ended up with 99F-102F on the various thermometers around the property today.  The airport recorded 95F at 5:50PM today, but may have had a max higher than that.  Whatever it actually was, it was definitely hot.

The forecast was for rain today, but not a drop.  Last night we had a little sprinkle, but downtown got a deluge.

The high today was 93 for a short period and hovered at 91 or so most of the afternoon, with a dewpoint around 80.  The (light) breeze from the gulf kicks in by 10 or so and dies after sunset, keeping the ultimate temp lower but the heat index high.  No rain for a couple weeks again and with the promise of only more heat; the rain chances are just kicked back in the forecast each day.

The weather was proper rubbish yesterday for mid-summer. With a max of just 17.8C / 64F, it was my coldest July day in 8 years, since 2015. Many places were running 7-8C / 15F below normal. Some spots like Gloucestershire were 10C / 20F below normal, so quite an abnormally cool day. Windy too with a fair bit of heavy rain yesterday evening too. Another 11mm / 0.43 inches here. My wettest day since March.

There will be highs of 28C / 82F by Friday and into the weekend, but the forecast still looks a bit iffy moving forward. The next 10-14 days aren’t looking great, given that we are approaching mid-summer. We are going to be waiting until late July - early August for the next proper heat burst and any real sustained ‘dry’ spell. I can’t say that I am too thrilled by the outlook. It could be better, but then again it could be worse.

The last couple of days we had a cool down from the weeks of pure summer weather before. Highs were between 22°C and 25°C. Despite this, nights were still pretty warm with lows usually between 15°C and 18°C. Days were partially cloudy 🌥️ and we finally got at least a bit of rain ⛈️. Especially yesterday when storm POLY 💨 rolled through. The forecast for the next days looks like hot air is coming up stright from Spain with highs of 33°C around the weekend and a following return of the high pressure summer weather. We will see... :greenthumb:

Hovering between 108-110F atm as the thinnest of mid level cloud scraps possible briefly dim the sun..  Heat ain't backing off going forward and, if anything, could get cranked into the "extreme" category next week as the 4C High ( $C = 4 Corners ) wanders back to the west, and proceeds to park itself directly on top of AZ, as it peaks at max intensity -this time around- after trying to set up just east of AZ over the upcoming weekend ..which will allow a trickle of moisture from the south  try and work it's way north over the state..  Emphasis trickle..

While still a few days out, carefully eye balling model runs for the next few days as there seems to be growing confidence among suggested forecasts Phoenix may make a decent run at 120 / 120+ sometime around mid week next week.

For all it's faults, and wavering between model runs,  GFS has been sending up red flags at a " Heat Burst " episode for several days now.. Some of it's thoughts are now starting to show up in some other model output.  Another notable thing suggesting the potential for this is laid out on the map below..

588mb Dam heights indicate frikin' sizzling temperature potential below such heights ( under the corresponding high pressure area..) ..I can't recall the last time i saw 594mb heights suggested in a model run's forecast, let alone spread over a wide area ( even if still at a regional level ) That right there is what gives me more ..but not complete... confidence that we could definitely be headed for a stretch of the hottest temps seen here in some time.

500mb Dam Height Thick map forecast hour 180 at 00z. today's 12Z GFS run:  We'll see how future forecast runs trend.

Obviously, even if a few days out, Nothing is set in stone. Center of the 4c High could end up centered a little further West, North, or East by the suggested time frame..  Still, the potential is significant enough to mention it.

...At the same time " some " moisture may seep into AZ  over the course of the week, next week setting up a potential for isolated to widely scattered dry Thunderstorm activity in the mountains to the north, east, and south of Phx..   Local deserts / areas to the west of town  get nothing..   Though low level moisture levels may climb a little, making the upcoming heatwave even more of a threat.. 


Sizzlin heat may expand, or shift west / northwest into   CA beyond next Thursday / Friday..  

We can only cross our fingers that relief from this extreme heat lies just beyond next weekend.. ( ...Or that it arrives sooner than currently forecast  ..Which would be great, Hint, Hint, lol )

Haha, Agree, 100%,  If you go into the " Emoji " section ( Smiley face to the right of the link symbol above ) there is a 👎 in the " People and Body " section of the Emojis..  That = a down arrow / dis - like.. 

** I should mention, ..All Wx forecast models ..whether from the U of AZ, Tropical Tidbits, Pivitol Wx, ..etc  aren't perfect.. Each of the different models used ..Say GFS, ECMWF, GEFS, ..etc..  can contain either a warm or cold data bias built into whatever they are suggesting,  which means..

...while reaching 120 is not out of the question -at least on one day- next week, U of AZ's  Wx model may be over sensitive to just how hot it could get ..over doing the Temp. forecasts for that time period.   Same with what is suggested by Tropical Tidbits, the NWS, etc.. 

This is why i say ..take the " suggestions " with a grain of salt, -for now at least..  If what is suggested is still on the table by Tuesday, ..Then we've got a problem, lol. Hopefully the forecast has backed off such extreme heat a little by then.

Then again, of all the readily available Wx models one could look over -if they wanted to-  for our region esp, the WRF has, in my personal opinion, done better than data from some of the other, more mainstream sites..  Again though, it is far from perfect..

Regardless, we'll just have to see what happens..

Had a very windy night. Min of 13.4C which is pretty warm for early July. Looks like we are going into a westerly flow which means warmer temps. It makes a change from the more southerly flow we’ve been having. Also rainfall is backing off which is good as my lake system was getting dangerously high at some points in the last few days.

July so far has not been great weather with one day only reaching 68f/20c. Min last night was 57.2f/14f with a max of 76f/24.5c with 38% humidity. The weather looks ok for the next 2 days but then back to wind coming from the north east. Hopefully at some point the jetstream moves so we get a southernly wind flow. A 21c overnight low is forecasted for tomorrow night.

Albuquerque/Roswell NM

"Several models are still showing 700mb temps reaching +22C or more by the middle of next week which will rival or break the record for the KABQ RAOB. Roswell may again see readings over 110F for several days. Very little if any storm activity is expected during this period thus extending the late start to the wet phase of the southwest monsoon"

 Yep, ..Not looking good, at all..  We've had 7 days of  back to back  days above 110F so far..  Record ( At Sky Harbor ) is 18, ..set in 1974..  Weekend, and all of next week stays above 110..  We might just break that record before " any " relief arrives,    ....and have August to get through..

We need to find some palms that hibernate in the summer I’m worried about new spears getting cooked but so far so good I have a C. (Dypsis) prestoniana opening a new large frond next to all the previous fronds

 Yep, ..Not looking good, at all..  We've had 7 days of  back to back  days above 110F so far..  Record ( At Sky Harbor ) is 18, ..set in 1974..  Weekend, and all of next week stays above 110..  We might just break that record before " any " relief arrives,    ....and have August to get through..

And people here complain that it’s so hot, my yard has topped out at 97 degrees so far this year. Yes I know it’s very humid here, but it isn’t THAT hot. Also I noticed (depending on which sites you look at) that Phoenix is forecast to have a LOW of 91 degrees on 1 or two days next week. Dad gum

I couldn't find it again, but there was a weather geek who'd posted something in the last thread on Daniel Swain's personal site, Weather West,  a model run idea ( ..Not sure which model's data, maybe from the ECMWF, shared from a post on Weather Bell ..Have to pay to access data on that site ) of one day where Phoenix, ..likely at the airport / downtown  may not drop below 100F

That may be an outlier among the other data used that doesn't pan out of course,  but, w/ the kind of set up currently suggested for next week / maybe extending beyond next week + some moisture in the air ( ...But not even a hint of rain / cooler out flow winds from any distant storms,  -as it is looking right now at least )  a few ..or several.. 90 / 90+ deg nights could happen..  Pretty sure Sky Harbor came close to a 100F overnight low not too long ago ..maybe back in 2020..

Regardless, yea, lol.. While 90+ highs,  Plus the added humidity isn't fun ( i did ok w/ it myself ),  there is no comparison to the flavor of heat experienced here.

Such a true statement.  I like to think of sitting in front of a fan(or wind tunnel) and experiencing the two flavors of heat.

One is deadly, the other, somewhat actually refreshing if enough air movement. 

Then.....

There.....

Is.....

Min of 59/15c max of 89f/31.6c with 29% humidity in London today. The UV index was an 8. 15.6 hours of sunshine today ☀️. Tonight's low is forecast to be 21c. Despite the cooler weather with low pressure at the start of July the garden still needs daily watering or the soil drys out too much.

I agree I do prefer the dry heat, I’m a western guy by birth and upbringing (Utah), plus we lived in Phoenix for a while, and loved it, one of my sons was born there. Here in Corpus if I go outside and so much as look at the lawnmower I will be so soaked in sweat it will look like I was standing in the rain. Having said all that, I do appreciate the lack of extreme heat here, plus at the beach which almost always has a nice breeze and a few degrees cooler than in town, it’s really quite comfortable to be out there.

That's the kicker.. Upper 70s to ..roughly 90, w/ 10-20 or 30% humidity is great hiking weather. Over 90-95, w/ the same humidity levels? tough go, ..but do-able,  if you get out early enough.   Forget a hike when it is over 100, lol..

Best days here this time of year are when it is partly to mostly cloudy, 80s- low 90s, and humid.. Humid evenings, in the 68-80-ish range are fantastic too.. Plants love it as much as everything else does..

These long streaks of 105- Hundred- teens, with little to no moisture in the air, and anything stronger than an occasional, light breeze  torch, ..or flat out kill just about everything, esp if in all day sun,  even cacti and Agave.  Tough sleeping weather too.

Speaking of long streaks ..Excessive Heat warning has been extended again. Now runs out to:  ..Not this  Sunday, but Next  Sunday ..the 16th.. if there are no signs of the heat letting up in the forecast beyond next Sunday,  by mid week next week,  it may get extended beyond next Sunday too..  Yeack!

Max of 30.5C / 87F here on Friday. As usual in summer, my area was one of the hottest parts of the UK...

A very, very mild night last night too with a low of 18.9C / 65F here. Some places didn't go below 20C / 68F last night. However, it is all downhill from here on it seems...

Looks like a max of 28.2C / 82F for me earlier.

Measured a high of 36.5°C today, which has been the warmest day of the year so far. Didn't feel as hot as the air is pretty dry. It was sunny all day until the evening with partial cloud coverage. ☀️ The heat is definitely back and we're expecting similar temperatures the upcoming days. This morning's low was 19.3°C.

When I got into my car (parked in shade) it was still 34°C at half past 8...

Sizzlin' ..but could be worse.  Stays about the same thru the rest of the weekend/ start of next week ..as it looks at the moment...

222830795_Screenshot2023-07-08at15-35-29ChandlerAZ10-DayWeatherForecastWeatherUnderground.png.55abed7f85038fa2574a9973a9d1d308.png

Noting some things in model guidance since yesterday which may ..or may not..  keep the anticipated heat in check a bit for later next week..  Or kick it down the road a litte more..   Obviously, just gonna have to continue to watch how things evolve over the next couple days.

-For Now-     Looks hot, for sure,   but maybe not as bad as how it looked earlier..

Dew Points also look to be headed up also ( Magenta line / arrows ) , which may account for a slight adjustment / reduction in currently suggested temps for next week    ..We'll see.

Regardless, D.P's  will not be high enough to encourage storm activity,  except maybe in the mountains / down south near the border.  Hopefully, it is a start in the right direction though..


With that said ..Finally!....  some decent-looking ( ...at least on Satellite ) storms developing atm  just south of the border,  and over portions of Santa Cruz / Cochise counties,  just south / southeast of Tucson. 


1235101068_CODNEXLAB-GOES-East-subregional-Baja-truecolor-2236Z-20230708_counties-map-glm_flash_noBar-31-1n-10-100.thumb.gif.2c203f4364b5de973aeaaad7880632e7.gif

Those areas stand the best chances for more activity at times thru next week,  while we bake..  

We'll see if any future forecasts try to pull a little more moisture north and west.  I'd be happy just to see some distant buildups / debris clouds around..

Today's high has topped the one from yesterday and the warmest temperature this year is now 37.3°C. With a low of almost 24°C this morning and almost 30°C by 9 a.m. the day started already pretty warm. Throughout the day the air got humid and we were just scraped by the thunderstorms coming from the South West. Only a few drops of rain have come down. ☀️⛈️

99.3F at 2 p.m. This has been a brutal heat wave the last couple weeks. It's too hot to hand water except before sunrise. And we still can't buy a raindrop. Last week after a 3-week dry spell we got 0.13". Hallelujah. A few days ago we got 0.06". Friday we drove up to north Tampa - it rained. That evening we drove back to Cape Coral - nada. July is usually our rainiest month. Bodes ill for the rest of the year. Oh, and the Hurricane Center ratcheted up our storm season from below normal to above normal.
