Nasty out at the beach again. Not a great start to the beach season as all the clouds are limiting the solar insulation getting into the water

Easy job for you guys since no one besides surfers goes in in this type of pattern.

Yeah but i use my vacation time from my groundkeeping Job so I can life guard during the preseason (Memorial Day through June 21st) so even though I'm working this is like my beach vacation. So I would like some decent weather. From now on I think I'll save my vacation Time for the postseason (Labor Day through September 20th)

It looks like the busiest part of the job for the LB crew is keeping people off all the new jetties. The old ones were so worn down that people couldn't walk on them.

That's going to be a nightmare for them when we get some hurricane surf later in the season. People on jetties/groins in big surf is definitely a problem!!!

The only 2 jetties in all of LB that you were able to walk out on before were Pacific and Roosevelt. Now you have many more going all the way down into the West End. I am sure there will be many people fishing and walking on them before and after the lifeguards are there. The beach patrol will probably be very busy.

A squall line in the Netherlands produced a meteotsunami the other day. It's rare to get such good video documentation of one of these events.

I was going to post the same thing.

128, earth hottest May temp ever recorded.

"During the last week of May, an impressive dome of overheated air with an isotherm of 35°C (95°F) at 850 hpa (approximately 5,000 feet) extended across the Strait of Hormuz near southern Iran and southwestern Pakistanz"

 

unreal.

35c at 850 is just wrong. Wow that's incredible stuff

The cucumber beetles are the worst I've ever seen them... veritable swarms of them have pretty much razed my squash and melon plants the past couple days. What's the deal with that?

Something is eating holes in my basil, but my squash looks good so far. 

 

Stupid strawberries suck though.

Heh, my basil is the only thing that seems to be doing well. Got a nice row of them growing this year instead of my usual single plant in a pot. Hoping to make lots of sauce this yr.

That's actually going to be the better eclipse of the two with a much longer duration of totality, peaking at nearly 4.5 minutes instead of 2m40s. Niagara Falls sees 3m30s of totality in 2024... just think of the hotel prices!

I have a room booked in Santee, SC for this August but odds favor clouds in the east.

Tomorrow night gives me a hair over an hour between the end of astronomical twilight and moonrise... might be the only chance at Milky Way imaging for this new moon cycle unless the mid-long range starts looking less unsettled.

Some year to date fun:

Jan. +5.4x31 = +167

Feb.  +6.3x28 = +176

Mar. -3.3x31 =   -102

Apr.  + 4.2x30 =  +126

May-1.3x31 =         -40

June -0.2x13  =        -3

or 324degs/164days = +1.98degs. for the year to date.   Record would be +2.5degs. for the whole year, over current 30 year normal.

Not the kind of weather you want for your Phoenix vacation unless you really like the heat.

 

Some interesting things to note:

The forecast models for Monday now have a median forecast
temperature of 120 degrees and a max forecast temperature of 123
degrees for Phoenix! On Tuesday, the forecast models have a median
forecast temperature of 119 degrees, and also a max forecast
temperature of 123 degrees for Phoenix. However, there`s still a
decent amount of spread and the Euro is still trending a tad bit
warmer than the GFS. Therefore, temperatures were nudged slightly
upward to account for the warming trend, but the temperature
forecast could go up even more in the near future if models
continue to trend higher.

Whats crazy about all of this is that the all time high
temperature at Phoenix Sky Harbor is 122 degrees set back in 1990
and there`s a chance we could be near this record and possibly
even break it if things continue to trend upward.

Another crazy thing, last year on June 19th we reached 118 in
Phoenix, and broke the previous record.

Yeah I was noticing 111 in cottonwood where my in laws live and they're usually a good 10 degrees "cooler" than Phoenix

It will? I thought we aren't due for a total solar eclipse until 2079 or so.  The one in April 2024 will be total in Buffalo and Rochester, so I'll be going there.

For the next few, the SE is going to get lucky, these things run in cycles and they look to be in the bullseye.
