Hot Stormy Summer 2010 Intermission
The climatic temperature range for New England has peaked, and from here on in will cool a degree or two a week into January or so. But the Ocean temperature does not peak until late august, and hurricane season gets cranking in the next 6 weeks. Today we hit 90^ at NECN for the 21st time of the year. The most since 2002 when we hit 90^+ on 23 days, most in August. That record will fall in the next two weeks. So as we watch the Barometer rise as High Pressure arrives form Canada, we can take a break from the heat and storms for a few days. This is the first week with no severe storms since.. I can not remember when. This nice low humidity is here into Sunday. We may actually enjoy a below normal temperature day on Saturday, when the low in Whitefield NH is forecast 38^.
We may call this the intermission of Hot & Stormy Summer 2010. Part one is done. Part two begins Tuesday/Weds next (August 3,4 2010)
Summer part two will see more heat and thunderstorms, and we add Hurricanes. The next name is Colin, then Danielle. Watch out for Danielle, she may be a whirling dervish :).
