Second Coldest July 6 On Record In Fort Collins

We are experiencing near record cold, and unprecedented wet conditions in Fort Collins. Yesterday only reached 66 degrees – the coldest July 6 since 1904. July 6 temperatures peaked in the 1980’s, and have been generally declining ever since.

Everything here is lush green, like no one has ever seen in July before. Experts call it a “permanent drought”

    Very wet in Northeast USA. Barely breaks 80 degrees, too. The weeds are growing like crazy everywhere.

    I was in the hospital for over a week and it rained nearly the entire time and when I got out, it was a trip seeing how overrun by weeds everything was! Sunday was dry so everyone was out mowing their weedy lawns like crazy including my husband.

    Meanwhile, in Boston, the big pile of snow is still there but scientists tell us Greenland is catastrophically melting!

    Lots of rain in Missouri. The flood wall is protecting Cape Girardeau from the Mississippi River.

    The setup is in place, the drought has been the scammers talking point for two years all the while temps fall. Now with an El Nino likely to push temps up at end of year into next all while dumping tons of rain on Cali you can be sure the talk will be only about the “end of the pause.”

    I have lived here in central florida 41 years now; this morning it was 68 degrees. Tampa ALWAYS
    shows about 7 degrees hotter. I have not seen this low since I moved here.

    My complaint is not temperature but precipitation. For the third week in a row I have flash flood warnings for my county in Central Indiana. I spent 5 1/2 hours getting my acre back in shape on the 4th because the yard was always too wet to mow for 10 days or so. My neighbor did get a chance to knock it down once while I was on the road but it was still almost 5″ high. Mowed slow and 1/2 of the deck at a time with the other 1/2 going over what I had already mowed. Then put the lawn sweeper on and filled it 7 times before I had all of the grass picked up.

    Usually by this time of year my yard has brown spots in it and the growth has slowed so I only mow once a week. This whole year though it has grown and is a green as it is normally during the first weeks of Spring and that means mowing every 4 days to keep it under control. All my wife’s flowers are doing great though.

    jet-stream blues?

    The max/min thermometer I have installed in Greenbelt, MD (a DC suburb) has not been above 81 degrees for the ten days I’ve had it. Averaging 8 degrees cooler than Washington National on max temps and 4 degrees cooler on min temps. I’ve checked new thermometer against others I know to be accurate, so calibration is not the problem. Cheating would appear to be the obvious problem!

      Yes, as I said my very healthy heat sensitive white clover says the nearby weather station (per Jeff Master) is lying about how hot it is.

      This is the third summer in a row the white clover has not died in the first weeks of June as the hot North Carolina weather kills it.

    Off topic, and a few days late…

    Just got back from a week in Colorado in the South Fork – Creede area. The Rio Grande was the highest I have ever seen since my first visit in 1963 as a child. Wildflowers and grasses were about as lush as I can remember. It rained on all but one day we were there. Amazing how much the weather can change from year to year. Just a couple of years ago huge forest fires burned much of the area between Creede and Pagosa Springs. The dry conditions back then also aggravated a beetle infestation that has killed whole forests of Engleman Spruce at the higher elevations between Creede and Lake City. This kind of variability has probably been going on throughout the current interglacial warm period over the last 10,000 years. There is evidence that tree lines were about 2,500 feet higher in Colorado around 120,000 years ago during the previous interglacial (Eemian).
