A taste of fall


Main threats:

No widespread hazardous weather expected over the next seven days.


Let’s see, where’s my pumpkin spice taste-of-fall creamer? Wait… what month is this?

You may be asking, “Hey! Where’s my summer, Meteorologist Mark?” Well, just hold on a couple of days and it will be back!

For now, you better enjoy these cool days and nights! We all know the heat and humidity of summer will return sooner than later.

Warmer conditions begin to move back in by Saturday and that warmer, more moist air will lead to some scattered showers and storms for Father’s Day. It’s not a washout, by any means, but have an indoor back-up plan for any outdoor activities.

The pattern looks to become even more unsettled and wet as we head into the next work week, with more chances for scattered showers and t-storms each day of the week. Some of that rainfall may be heavy.

If you think it gets windy here on earth you should try Neptune for a while! Winds on that gaseous planet have been measured at 1,200 mph. This makes the winds of Neptune the fastest in our solar system.


The coldest temperature ever recorded in the U.S. in the month of June was recorded on this day in 1907 in Tamarack, California (see map below). The low temp dipped to two degrees above zero. The high that day was just 30 degrees. Between the 10th and 13th of June, Tamarack received 42 inches of snow, leaving them with a total snow depth on the 13th of 130 inches. I’d say that’s enough to build a snowman. (HA)

The map below has Tamarack marked. The town has an elevation of 6,913 feet.




I had just over half an inch of rain at my house yesterday evening (0.61).

Yesterday’s record high: 92 (1977)

Yesterday’s record low: 45 (1988) Our lows have been similar to 1988 lately. That year went down in history as one of the hottest and driest on record for the plateau.

Today’s record high: 89 (2016, 1977)

Today’s record low: 43 (1985) Will we break or tie this tonight? Stay tuned!

One year ago today

Just over a trace of precip fell, as high temperatures topped out at 80 degrees, after a morning low of 66. Not a bad day!


Today is my Mom’s birthday! Happy birthday, Mom!
