Abnormal temperatures are baking the Western US in triple digits. These heat waves could become the new normal. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ts/7721768002/
Quote:
The National Weather Service, the U.S. government agency that provides weather forecasts and severe weather warnings, announced Wednesday that more than 40 million people in the Western region are under a heat advisory or excessive heat warning. At least 11 states reported triple-digit temperatures, Accuweather confirmed.
isn't going away anytime soon.

Quote:
"No easy way to say this, so we'll just cut straight to the chase: it's going to be *very* hot for a *long time* next week," the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City tweeted Twitter Friday. "The entire area is going to be way above normal for all of next week."
Quote:
The weather service said that residents "enduring the abnormal heat" are urged to stay hydrated and avoid extended periods of time outdoors if possible.

"With warm temperatures and dry soil in place, an elevated fire risk is in effect throughout portions of the Rockies and Intermountain West," the service wrote.

At least four states have issued evacuation orders for residents. Here's a look at the hottest it will be in the Western states and when it may end:
Quote:
Scientists who study drought and climate change say that people living in the American West can expect to see more of the same in the coming years.

“Heat waves are getting worse in the West because the soil is so dry” from the region's megadrought, said Park Williams, a University of California, Los Angeles, climate and fire scientist who has calculated that soil in the western half of the nation is the driest it has been since 1895. “We could have two, three, four, five of these heat waves before the end of the summer.”

Guess I'll be like everyone else, by the time I believe it it will be too late.

This is called Weather. It happens all of the time. As we only have data for the last hundred or so years, all we can truly say is that it is currently as hot as it has been since we have been measuring and recording temperatures. We don't know how hot or cold those areas were prior to about a hundred years ago. This may be a common occurrence.

But taxing people will do NOTHING to change it. Making government bigger and giving them more power will do NOTHING but enrich and empower some people will destroying the quality of life for the rest of us.

So when it happens in 1895, it's "natural", bt when it happens in 2021, it's "anything but natural"...

As you can see, there are some who's life experiences make us a bit leery of the "science."


"The soil has not been this dry since 1895" "Obviously," says the scientists, " this is the result of man caused global warming"

This is why.

I've always found it ironic when someone says something like hottest day since 1895. Which of course means that the earth has cooled since 1895.

Not really since it was a confluence of THREE weather systems to make this happen.

It was all predicted days ahead of the heatwave based on weather information.

Here is that presentation about it.

Cliff Mass Weather Blog


June 24, 2021

Incredible Temperatures Are Being Predicted and Confidence Is Now High That It Will Occur

Excerpt:

There are two possibilities:

The Northwest will soon experience one of the most incredible weather situations in many decades

There is a major flaw in virtually all of our weather prediction system
Quite frankly, I am somewhat in shock looking at the raw forecast model predictions or the statistically calibrated versions of their output. The event being predicted is so extreme and so beyond expectation that my natural inclination is to dismiss it.

But I can't. Multiple modeling systems are essentially doing the same thing. Large ensembles of many forecasts are showing similar solutions from most of the runs.

Let me show you the latest.

An important issue will be proximity to water and to get that right, high-resolution forecasts are important, so let me start by presenting the latest UW high-resolution simulations. The situation is so extreme that I had the colors altered to better define high temperatures.

Saturday will be the transition day. The temperatures at 5 PM, near the time of the maxima, will exceed 100 F in much of the Columbia Basin and in the northern Willamette Valley (e.g. Portland). 90s will invade the interior of southwest Washington and southern Puget Sound. Warm, but typical of the hottest days of a typical year.

Global warming claims for the heatwave is media based nonsense.
