Goodbye Rain - Hello Heat.

For now our stormy weather comes to an end. We are leaving the average heart of our severe weather season as we head towards the end of this month. Does this mean that we can't have severe thunderstorms from here on out? Absolutely not. Severe thunderstorms have been documented just about every month of the year locally. We usually have a second severe weather season beginning around the end of August into the first of October. Without a doubt our spring was very active severe weather-wise and got off to an early start.

The heat machine is slated to crank up over the area over at least the next week if not beyond. Forecast high temperatures over the next week to ten days will be at or above 100ºF. Next Friday looks to be the hottest day of the upcoming week with a forecast high temperatures in Carlsbad of 104ºF. Don't be too surprised if we don't end up getting hotter than this. 

June typically sees the highest temperatures recorded locally. July, August, and September can be comparably miserable for us in some years because of the increased rainfall and humidity. Long range models aren't offering much hope for relief from the heat as far as rain is concerned either.
