    Saw that too. Always liked John, professional but fun at the same time. Did a good overall job of forecasting in a challenging area. You could always tell he was a true weather nerd who loved his job. Well done John!

    Yeah, Augusta is at 86 days of 90+, 30 days at 95+, and 7 of 100 +. Looks very similar to CAE, it's just that some of CAE 'S upper 80s days made it into the low 90s for Augusta. That whole Cola to Aug to Orangeburg to Walterboro area is brutal.

    Only 75 here right now, but so muggy out there you need a scuba suit to walk around. I'm starting to really hate rain; or at least the mugginess it leaves behind.

    CAE with 75 days over 90 so far. Not too bad actually, I think they had like 120 days one year recently. 30 days of 95+ (but 13 more at 94), and just 7 of 100+. All in all not too bad for them, but still a ways to go. Edit: Quick check, looks like 2016 they had 109 days of 90+, with 21 days of 100+. 111 days of 90+ in 2018. GSP at 51 of 90+, with 8 at 95+, an overall high of 97. (2019)

    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Always liked that song. Maybe we should change the lyrics just a bit: Follow September Escaping summer Hell Looking for the wind Of chaaannnge... As August summer nights Slowly pass us by Yearning for the wind Of chaaannnge

    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Well this weekend the upstate should see highs in the low 80s or even high 70s with clouds and some rain, but even after that the highs are all 80s; so no 90s. That's right on cue for our first fall "cool down" coming in late August. This past 10 days or so have gotten old quick!

    Looking Ahead to Fall and Winter

    Well I know you've thought about it. I'm over the whole heat/summer thing and most of us can't wait for cooler weather. It's that time of year to look for signs and global patterns. Robert (wxsouth) has made some comments on his facebook site about the possibility of a weak Nina, or a "La Nada" ENSO pattern and that it may actually favor cooler temps for us generally, as recent Ninos have not acted like historic Ninos, and we've experienced more (and deeper plunging) cold fronts during recent Ninas. He admits he does not have a good guess this year and pretty much anything is on the table, and acknowledges he completely missed last year's forecast. I also checked out youtube prognosticators and you see the same predictions of bone chilling cold and snow you see every year for the East, but we know how that goes. Right now it seems the usual pattern of pushing back the cooldown (from low 90s to upper 80s) has already started. There has been a lot of record warmth in Europe, Alaska, and the Arctic region this summer, and arctic sea ice melt appears to be tettering back and forth on the 2012 line. There are not a lot of good signs for a good brisk fall nor a decent winter. I my opinion, it is very hard to bet against the trends. Outside of the upper mid west and central part of the US, there's been very little below average for a long time. We know it will cool down and eventually we'll see fall and then winter like conditions, but will it continue to be above to well-above normal? I think predicting or even hoping for something different would be setting ourselves up for disappointment. I predict Fall and Winter will be noticeably warmer than normal (which of course is the new normal). Unfortunately, we'll see at least one winter month be drastically above normal (like the past couple Februaries for example), snow will be almost impossible to come by south of I-40 and below 2000 feet, and we'll be left scratching our heads on how a very different set of factors could lead to such a similar result as last winter. Oh, and no three-peat of the early December snow (sorry NC peeps). What say you?

    Well many of us saw lows in the 50s in late July this year. Hope that doesn't mean no more 50s till November this year...
