    Agreed, I’ve been touting the upcoming warmth and unfortunately this is going to happen in MJO 3, just wait until we hit 4.  Very ugly pattern rest of the month where we aren’t even seasonably cold after massive cutters

    It's over and it never started. C'est la vie...

    Here I am...minding my own business...not complaining or saying anything about the awful heat...but since you brought it up.... ;).... stupid Saharacuse does not have much room for it to get hotter. Consecutive summers of 20 something days hitting 90 or above.... snowpack having lots of trouble surviving the ridiculous winter warm spells... The average summer temps may max at 81-82 degrees, but they sure do seem to sit at 88 to 90 degrees here day after day. Temps err on the warm side of average by 5 to 10 degrees so very often. It's disgusting. 

    You asked for it....................... :lmao:

    My pool is at 85 degrees. So there's that...  ;)

    All I know is I was backpacking in the Adirondacks this past weekend and it was too cold to sleep at night with my sub 30 degree sleeping bag. The low had to be right around freezing at the elevation I was at.  If **** hits the fan, I'm moving to those mountains. They are protected from alot of the heat and humidity. 

    Yup, I think you will have a great time up thar.  Bring your banjo!  :lmao:

    Agreed, although I think it may be worse than you think. Given what we've been seeing, which is often worse than what the models show, and factoring in the model projections for the year 2100, looks like there will be a permanent dust bowl over the central and southern Plains. That is to say, conditions akin to those present during the Dust Bowl will just be considered the base climate state as opposed to some extreme deviation from the norm. While the Great Lakes are projected to see precipitation increases, the summer projections show a modest decrease in precipitation - but more importantly, a large increase in the number of consecutive dry days and the number of days with extreme heat (90s, 100s) with the precipitation falling increasingly in occasional torrents - perhaps from tropical disturbances, or slow-moving gullywashers from time to time when the heat breaks. Makes sense with the Hadley cells moving north and expanding - should put much of the CONUS firmly in a region of predominantly sinking air. I imagine agricultural interests will find such conditions quite challenging. Will probably require substantially more irrigation.

    I just get worried when I see widespread temperatures of 115-118F in the Pacific Northwest, and 100-104F in the UK (north of 50N), which are both heavily marine-influenced climates, but relatively dry in the summertime. What happens when this projected drying expands east into the Plains. There were temperatures up to 120F in the Dust Bowl all the way into the northern Plains. What happens in 2100, with CO2 at 500+, maybe substantially higher, in an already drying climate when a mega drought shows up - do we see temperatures of 130F, 140F, shattering world records? Will it just get so hot that crops simply desiccate and die in the extreme heat, such that no amount of irrigation will be sufficient?

    ;tldr :)

    This climate change talk is laughable. Its summer it gets hot at times nothing new. Cycles come and go. Winter time it gets cold nothing new. All of this is artificial hysteria to push a depopulation agenda. 

    This sort of loose talk would get you banned from OT. Or at the very least called a f@cktard by the intelligentsia there...such as it is.  ;)
