Full Moon Marks Turning The Corner To A Heat Wave

Full Moon Marks Turning The Corner To A Heat Wave

Thursday June 28 2018

We still have a few showers today that will be of the popcorn variety, which I will show below. The sky should be clear enough this evening to view the Strawberry Moon. The full moon will be rising in Baltimore at 9:01 PM and brighten the summer night. This is not necessarily related to the weather, but it will mark a turning point for us.  The jet stream is shifting and the heat in the nation’s heartland will be heading our way over the weekend and into the next.  The abrupt change will switch not only to heat, but little to no rain over the next week. That may allow the soil to dry out a little and those on summer break to enjoy pool or boating time.

Popcorn showers on display. This type simply are scattered and pop up at any time. It’s almost like watching a movie to see where they form and move. They will be brief for a few hours this afternoon between noon and 6 PM

How Hot?

There has been some errors in the mid range modeling of temperatures lately. The European Model has been too cool and the GFS model too hot. The GFS has us over 100ºF for. few days, and I don’t buy it right now.

I would plan on three to five days of mid to upper 90s between Saturday and mid next week. Heat Index values are likely to top 100ºF making it dangerous for some afternoon outdoor activities. Just another side of summer we haven’t had to deal with yet this year. But we will…
