Fairly comfortable weather next week

Here’s a look at the maximum temperatures in Minneapolis so far this year. The coldest temperature was -17 degrees Fahrenheit on January 7 and the hottest Monday was at 101 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s a temperature difference of 118 degrees Fahrenheit, which is really amazing.

Here’s our 7 a.m. weather forecast Wednesday through 7 a.m. Monday, showing fairly calm conditions through the middle of the week. Weather conditions become a bit unstable later in the week and into the coming weekend with the possibility of heavy rain.

Here’s the possibility of extended rain through early next week, showing some pockets of heavy stuff across parts of eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Here’s a look at out-of-average precipitation so far in June. Note that many sites deal with deficits, many of which range from -1.00″ to -2.00″ or more below average during the first 20 days of the month. Minneapolis is about -2.25 inches below average, which is good enough to start the ninth-driest in any June at all.

According to NWS Twin Cities, topsoil moisture from 0 to 10 cm deep is rapidly depleted. With the highest rainfall in March and April, we started June close to the average rainfall for the year, but this month was very dry, so the topsoil moisture is increasing rapidly. Extreme heat doesn’t help either. Hopefully some cooler, wetter weather will settle in soon.

Drought Update in Minnesota

Thanks to above average rainfall so far this year, we’ve eliminated a lot of the drought that was in place to start the year. In fact, as of early January, nearly 10% of the state in northern Minnesota was considered to be in a severe drought. Now, only 3% of the condition is considered abnormally dry.

So far in June this year, the Twin Cities are running about +2.0 F above average which is good enough for the start of the 29 warmest June ever. We’re also nearly -2.00″ below average and the 12th driest of any June on record.

The weather forecast for Minneapolis on Wednesday shows temperatures soaring into the mid-80s, which will still be roughly +5 F above average.

Hourly temperatures in Minneapolis on Wednesday show temperatures starting in the mid-60s and warming in the mid-80s under mostly sunny skies. West to northwest winds are occasionally breezy with gusts of 15 mph to 20 mph.

An extended temperature forecast for Minneapolis shows temperatures are above average through the end of the week. We’ll be closer to average, if not a little lower, by the end of the week.

Extended weather forecasts for the next seven days show warmer than average temperatures through the end of the week with showers and storms likely later in the week. We’ll be a little closer to average if not a little lower than that by Sunday.

According to the ECMWF and GFS extended temperature forecasts, temperatures will remain above average through the end of the week. The readings will be cooler than average over time through the end of the month.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, the 8- to 14-day temperature forecast shows above-average temperatures for most parts of the country except for the Great Lakes region.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, an 8- to 14-day forecast shows drier weather across the central United States. The southwestern United States can actually see more brisk weather with increased chances of precipitation.

Record high temperatures on Monday. 101F has been in the Twin Cities the hottest in over 4 years – its top 100 in June since 2011. Yes, if anyone asks, it was “hot enough”.

Heat is America’s number one weather killer, and research suggests that it’s not too hot during the day, but harsh nighttime lows, which can prove fatal for overtime. If temperatures do not drop below 80 degrees Fahrenheit, people cannot feel comfortable at night, and after the third or fourth night of forest-like heat, health complications rise.

The epicenter of the blast furnace heat will be south of Minnesota in mid-July, in fact we’ll see a nice break from the muggies. I see most of the 80s in the second week of July, with a few days of 70 degrees next week. It’s time to catch our breath.

Today it will be comfortably stunning with a canopy of blue skies stretched over and dew points in the fifties. Rain and thunderstorms return on Friday and Saturday, but a fresh Canadian breeze treats us to a Sunday like September with a 70’s and fresh breeze. I can live with that.

Tuesday’s weather forecast shows well above average temperatures in the central United States with record levels likely in the Great Lakes region. Meanwhile, rain and storms will be possible in the southwest where temperatures run approximately -15 F to -20 F below average in New Mexico.

Here’s the national weather forecast through Thursday evening, showing the return of unsettled weather to the Midwest later in the week. However, the heaviest storms will be in the southwest.

According to NOAA’s Weather Prediction Center, areas of heavy rainfall will be found across parts of the Southwest, particularly in New Mexico and Colorado. There will also be heavier precipitation in northern Minnesota and Canada as well as the northeast and Florida. The West Coast will remain mainly dry.

“A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology believe we can mitigate the worst climate change by using … space bubbles. And they have identified a strategy by which we can A huge raft of bubblesCarefully positioned between the Earth and the sun, it would deflect sunlight (and thus heat) to stop further global warming. “Geoengineering may be our last and only option. However, most geoengineering proposals are associated with the Earth, posing serious risks to our living ecosystem,” web page Custom solution reads. “If we take out 1.8% of incoming solar radiation before it hits our planet, we can completely reverse today’s global warming.”

“Scientists have discovered that bears have found a way to survive distances of up to about 250 days each year without sea ice. An isolated group of polar bears living in southeast Greenland has surprised scientists with their ability to survive in a habitat with relatively little sea ice. The success of the bears for scientists raises new questions about the future of the species in a warming world.Polar bears, which usually depend on sea ice as habitat and as platforms for hunting seals, are expected to suffer from a decline in their numbers as the Arctic warms and ice becomes less abundant.But scientists have discovered that Bears in southeastern Greenland – which they propose to classify as a distinct subpopulation – have found a way to survive distances of up to about 250 days each year without sea ice. Bears typically cannot fast for more than 180 days.”

“Now, few people question the fact that humans Earth’s climate change. The real question is: How quickly can we stop the damage, and even reverse it? Part of the answer to this question lies in the concept of “Committed Warming,’ also known as ‘pipeline warming’. Refers to future increases in global temperatures that will be caused by greenhouse gases that have already been emitted. In other words, if the clean energy transition occurs overnight, how much warming will persist? Earth’s energy budget is unbalanced Humans cause global warming when their activities emit greenhouse gases, which trap heat in the lower part of the atmosphere, preventing it from escaping into space. Before people began burning fossil fuels to power factories and vehicles and raise methane-emitting livestock in nearly every arable region, Earth’s energy budget was roughly balanced. It was the same amount of energy coming from the sun as it was leaving.”
