This will have to be very short as I have very pressing issues...
On June 24th (click here) and again on July 14th I mentioned one of the periods I had picked out to have below normal temperatures and above normal rainfall ("July 25-28 cooler again with a above normal rainfall".). That was amazingly on target although just a few days early. Here is the rainfall that has occurred this past 72 hours with the majority falling this past 12 hours ending at 11 AM this Friday, the 29th.
Temperatures have moderated accordingly due to the cloud cover and precipitation that will persist through the weekend.
The heat returns next week but it should be moderated by the amount of rain that has fallen (and will continue to fall this weekend). Humidity will likely be a bit higher with the heat.
The next period I had identified (in June and again earlier this month) is:
August 3-7 Below normal temps and above normal rainfall.
The North American Monsoon will continue and hopefully it will slide over again and influence the high plains weather at that point. I'll do my best to post next week but no guarantees.
