  1. The unusually strong 500 mb anomaly over Canada allowed us to escape the major heat this July that has been common since 2010.

  2. So far this is the second most positive summer AO on record for the June into July period. 2016 wasn’t nearly as positive for this first half of summer interval. If the lower pressures were more aligned with the AO region, then it would be even more positive. That’s why the raw indices don’t always tell the complete story. It would be nice to have the daily AD anomaly to combine the two indices for a more complete picture. You can see the Arctic pressures were lowest in the series for the month of June just edging out 1970.
  3. JFK was able to set its highest dew point record of 84° in 2016. But you can see how all the highest records were in recent years. The mid-July 1995 heatwave was impressive for several sites reaching the 100/80 mark.
  4. This is actually the lowest Arctic pressures for the first half of summer since 1989. Looking at the raw indices like the AO doesn’t really do this pattern justice. While the core of the low pressure is closer to the Russian side this summer, the overall Arctic pressures haven’t been this low in the post 2007 era. In the much cooler late 80s with the healthier ice pack, we would be talking about a September daily minimum extent near 7 million sq km like 1989. But we’ll have to settle for whatever passes for good in the post 2007 Arctic this year.
  5. That was 2018. JFK is currently at 7 days with a 75° or higher dew point . Only 3 more days needed for the first 6 year run. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=161&network=NY_ASOS&zstation=JFK&var=max_dwpf&dir=aoa&thres=75&month=all&year=2021&dpi=100&_fmt=js
  6. Yeah, more record rainfall and flooding.
  7. Another top 10 highest dew point July at JFK and ISP. https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/plotting/auto/?_wait=no&q=76&network=NY_ASOS&station=JFK&season=jul&varname=dwpf&year=1893&w=bar&hours=0-23&dpi=100&_fmt=png
  8. A combination of a warmer atmosphere holding more moisture and slower moving systems.
  9. Another 2.31 on the North Shore with the thunderstorms last night. This brings the Port Washington total to 14.31 for July so far. This probably ranks among the heaviest July rainfall totals ever recorded on Long Island.

  10. Yeah, these rainfall extremes are occurring all across the world. This is officially the wettest monsoon on record to date in Tucson. Also notice how the intensity of the monsoon produced the record cool temperatures in Phoenix.
  11. Yeah, looks like this will be the 6th month since 2010 that at least one of our major stations goes 10.00”+. August 2011 was the last time all our stations went 10.00” in the same month. It will be interesting to see if we can eventually get a 10.00” winter month in the coming years. The only one in NYC history was Jan 1979. But out of 10.59, only 6.6 fell as snow. I wonder what the highest precipitation total winter month we can get and still have most of it fall as snow? Philly picked up 5.75 in Feb 2010 and 51.5 of that was snow. NYC got 6.69 in Feb 2010 and 36.9 was snow. Be interesting to see the maximum snowfall we can get from a 10.00 winter month. Jul….2020….EWR…11.20 Aug..2014…..ISP……14.07 Jun..2013……NYC….10.10 Aug..2011……EWR….18.79…..other stations in same range Mar…2010…..NYC…..10.69
  12. Flash flooding today in London.
  13. Albany was a cool oasis in a sea of warm back in June. ALB….-0.2 POU…+2.8 BTV….+4.3 BGM..+3.4 SYR…+5.5
  14. June was a top 1-5 warmest for the Northeast. But July only ranks In the top 20s for many spots. This is one of the biggest temperature ranking declines from June to July that we have ever seen.
  15. This is one of the more impressive temperature gradients that we have seen this time of year. So an up and down temperature pattern. With all the quick changes, there will be something for everyone.
