Quick look at the week

Hot and humid with popcorn thunderstorms today, tomorrow and perhaps into Wednesday.  The remainder of the weeks gets cooler but remains unsettled until Friday.  The weekend is looking pretty good.

As side note, after a month into the season, the Atlantic tropics are finally popping into action.   Eastern North Carolina will likely be hit with what could be a major hurricane("Arthur") this Friday, spoiling 4th of July celebrations for a lot of people.

For those unsure who to cheer for in the World Cup

Here is a flow chart to help...

Short term debate

US models show tomorrow the bulk of the precipitation tomorrow going north of us.  The Euro and Can. model have the bulls-eye right over eastern Ontario. 

The Long weekend will start nice but instability will enter into the picture later Sunday.  However there is some debate about timing and location.

Special weather statement in effect for:
  • Ottawa North - Kanata - OrlĂ©ans
  • Ottawa South - Richmond - Metcalfe
Significant rainfall possible beginning late Wednesday.
A low pressure system is expected to affect Eastern Ontario beginning later in the day on Wednesday and continuing until Friday. Rain at times heavy and isolated thunderstorms will be associated with this system. The slow moving nature of this system may result in significant rainfall amounts.

At this point, it is still too early to say which locations will be affected the most and how much rain will fall. However, some regions may see amounts in excess of 40 millimetres.

Texas drought update.

Previous post here.   Three maps to show today. The first two maps show the progression of drought status.  Compare these with the one in the previous post.   The third maps is the predicted rainfall over the next four days.   Most of the deep red in Texas and Kansas will be eliminated.

California is still suffering though.  That'll change when the El Nino moisture kicks up.

Lest we forget...

Another Indonesia volcano

Mt. Sangeang erupted on Friday.   While impressive, getting up to 65,000 feet, it ain't a Pinotubo type event and should have minimal climatic impact, provided it doesn't last very long.
