July 4 2022

Monday Morning Update 

Today is a special day for a few reasons.  On the calendar it is the American Independence Day and peak of the summer holiday season.  This is a rare July 4th where we do not have storms to navigate. So fireworks deploys should be on schedule. The rest of the week however will get more active. 

Aphelion Day

This is also the day where Earth is at the farther distance from the sun in the annual orbit. It does seem counterintuitive, but while The Northern Hemisphere is tilted towards the sun, today Earth is about 3 million miles FARTHER from the sun than it is during the winter.

The distance does not affect the radiation we receive. We are hotter in summer due to a higher sun angle and longer days.

 

 

Morning Surface Weather

High Pressure in control means sunshine and calm weather. This will allow that sun to heat us us to seasonable levels.

Storm Simulation: Tuesday To Friday 

We will get into the pattern of scattered showers and storms just about each day.  This does NOT promise you will get hit as many of these will be scattered showers, and like we saw over the weekend, those can dump on some areas while leave others out.

*Disclaimer due to frequent questions:

I am aware there are some spelling and grammar typos. I have made a few public statements over the years, but if you are new here you may have missed it:

I have dyslexia, and found out at my second year at Cornell.  I didn’t stop me from getting my meteorology degree, and being first to get the AMS CBM in the Baltimore/Washington region. 

I do miss my mistakes in my own proofreading. The autocorrect spell check on my computer sometimes does an injustice to make it worse. 

All of the maps and information are accurate. The ‘wordy’ stuff can get sticky. 

There is no editor that can check my work when I need it and have it ready to send out in a newsworthy timeline. 

I accept this and perhaps proves what you read is really from me…

It’s part of my charm.
