    I have a trip up to the Vermont mountains next week. GFS is showing a very strong ridge and well above-average highs of 10-20 degrees above normal for this time of year for that area, with a cool down right when I leave. Honestly it's a cruel joke at this point.

    If the GFS is right we will be waiting until at least the 4th week of the month for a shot at a brief cooldown/drier air. Not unusual, but the chances will really start ramping up by the end of the next 6 weeks.

    Think the heat island effect could be that bad? Otherwise would be from the official CLT location but if I remember correctly it is in a low spot near the airport.

    The Goofy more or less says to try again next month.

    About the most miserable walk to work this morning I have ever experienced. 78 degrees with a dewpoint of 73 at 8 am meant that I showed up to work ready for another shower.

    Humid and Hot. Dew points luckily staying below 70 most days so far.

    I think my biggest frustration with the "New Normal", so to speak, is that the excessively high dew points every day means that we are nearly 100% of the time above "average" on our lows even when we are near or below normal on our highs.

    I'll take the 588 Death Ridge over the 594 Death Ridge I suppose.

    Maybe related - but I saw low-level clouds last night (SE to NW) going in the complete opposite direction of the upper level flow (NW to SE) in Charlotte. There weren't any obvious nearby storm cells either. Any possible explanations?

    Looking forward to the Wedge action this Wednesday followed by a drying trend. Summer Wedges are quite refreshing, even if it's still moist.

    Thank god I will be in Europe the next couple of weeks. What an awful way to kick off summer. I know it will be waiting for me when I return.

    Long range GFS is showing a series of good pushes of continental Canadian air from 5/11-5/20 or so. Hoping we can cash that in before summer loads up and locks in.

    Good T-storm in Uptown Charlotte today. Drove from Matthews where it was partly cloudy directly into the storm on my way into town. Back at my place Uptown it was perfectly clear only an hour later.

    588 Ridge on the 500 MB chart showing up next week. Hope that isn't a permanent feature this summer, but we all know how this is going to go.
