Back from vacation…here are the 4 weekly maps of average 500mb height and anomaly. Wow, things sure haven’t changed much in the past year. Upper-level heights remain above normal over us or just to our north and west.
It’s been an unusually warm and dry end to spring and start of summer and there’s no sign that’s going to change. It’s going to be a rough summer for our native vegetation due to lack of water and for our forests (from fire).
On the flip side, my cucumbers, tomatoes, and squash are going to do great!
