A Few Maps for Tuesday Afternoon

I had the weekend and Monday off for some kid’s events so a bit delinquent on posting.    So I’m back in the saddle and looking carefully at the weather maps/models…I’ll post a few thoughts later.  I have some other office issues and a project I need to get done.

But for now, here are the latest 18z GFS and 12z ECMWF ensemble charts…very warm for early May:

    Oh, my. Hello, Summer! We’ve missed you in a big way.
    Hello bbq. Hi there, shorts. Howdy pale-ass people showing too much skin!! Hi sunburn. Props to watering the garden. Hey now, it’s Otter Pop time!! WooHoo!

    A lot more ensemble spread on the EURO than the GFS. The EURO seems to be indicating the chance that the highest heights once again end up offshore, putting us into cool North or NW flow again by day 6 or 7.

    Regardless looks like a stellar next few days coming up. 🙂

    Got my English peas all covered up. Gonna be a cold one tonight!

    • Peas should be OK with a light freeze, huh?
      My peas are being attacked by Yellow Crown sparrows. At first I thought they were kinda cute in the garden scratching around like little chickens. Then I see them going after my pea plants and eating the leaves! Had to throw on an emergency screen to save them. Damn wildlife! 😉

      Peas survive freezes in winter…I bet down to around 20 degrees at least because my cover crop has survived most years.
