Looks to open on the warm side.

That's already in the running for understatement of the month.

Didn't want to be too dramatic.  :P

Fyi, Chad is back at WLFI.  Don't worry, I already shared the joyous news with my former LAF buddy.

The good thing about July is that you know everything from here on, in most years, is all downhill till winter.

 

Days are getting shorter.  Of course it's still not enough to mean much yet.

July is the best month of the year. Warmth, sun, beach, swimming, jet skiing, outdoor party's, barbecues, almost the start of football season. Can't beat it.

I like next to none of those things.

I love cold, clouds and mountains. That's when it's fun to get outdoors and hike, etc.

As alluded to in the banter thread, that is a ridiculous amount of real estate in those 594+ dm heights.  Doesn't mean it will translate into crazy hot temps, but what it may tend to do is suppress most organized convective potential over a pretty large area.

If we were to get a tropical system like that, even albeit weak, that will strengthen the ridge even more.

The GFS has been consistent in popping that cyclone.

So has the Euro, not exactly strong with it and it looks more subtropical on both but it is there.

Right now I think I'll go 96 Fri/Sat/Sun for ORD, with a peak DP during the period of 78.

Tomorrow has the coolest start out of the 3 days, but will feature by far the warmest UA temps. Sat/Sun have warmer starts, but cooling UA temps each passing day, and Sun has compressional heating potential with the front approaching. The wild cards will be the MCS/OFB/cloud debris potential for Fri, and then potential cloud debris issues on Sun as well.

The last time ORD had 3 consecutive days of 95+ was in July 2012.  Last September just barely missed accomplishing that. 

Going to take me longer to find the last time they had the exact same high 3 days in a row.  :scooter:

I noticed that Midway has often been 1-2 higher than ORD on dewpoints lately. Might mean they could have a slightly better shot than ORD to reach 80 if that continues.  The last time that either ORD or MDW had an 80 degree dewpoint on an hourly observation was 7/30/1999, when both sites reached 82.

Will revise to 92 for Sunday, given guidance has come back faster with the fropa now.

Can we will ORD to a 90 degree high on Monday?  Seems like the trickiest day out of the 7-8 day period that started today.  It looks potentially just warm enough aloft for 90 but mixing questions/lake breeze are issues.

For a while it looked like it might be close, but not it's looking more unlikely.

Tue-Thur should be 90+ though still, with Thur being the warmest day.

Although we should shave some amount off the heat indices this coming week, it will be pretty warm/muggy.  Outside of areas prone to marine influence, it may turn out to be "in numbers only"... I mean, if heat indices are only about 3-5 degrees lower than the past couple days, how much relief is that, really?  High dewpoints will remain with the usual sites possibly hitting 80 at times.  I suspect the segment of the public that is heat averse will have had about enough by next weekend.

The only rain showing up in Indiana currently is right over my house. Might actually pick up a few hundredths. It will be interesting to see how this affects temps/dews later.

Picked up 0.00" overnight, as the storms died just nw as expected.  Will be interesting to see if we can get in on those storms as they pop up nearly overhead early this afternoon.  HRRR/3km NAM shows them popping up by noon, but any delay in the formation of the storms will kick us out of the game.
