I had the last 3 days off, but back just in time for some new weekly 500mb height anomaly maps from last night’s ECMWF:
This would imply the next two weeks will be cooler than average with troughing nearby. The 12z also shows the same thing through the next 2 weeks. Summer might “end” a bit early. By that I mean we might see an extended period of normal to below normal temps…maybe. Either way it’s obvious that the real heat of summer is behind us.
