We're freaking melting down here and they're saying it will be the middle of Oct before we drop below 90. We usually have another hot spell right around Halloween too, so it may be 6 weeks or more before we get any relief.

No rain, but we've had 500,000+ acres of the Yazoo backwater underwater for the last 5 months so I'm sure they don't mind. People were finally allowed back to their houses and businesses about a week ago and some roads are opening back up.
EXTENDED FORECAST: An expanding ridge of high pressure will bring August heat levels back to central Mississippi to round out the week. Highs will gradually begin to head into the lower to middle 90s by the end of the work week – eventually middle to upper 90s emerge by the weekend and the start of the upcoming work week, nearing record territory by Monday and Tuesday. Rain chances will remain minimal, at best – mostly, non-existent.

I can't say I envy you weather, AT ALL! It is looking like there is going to be a lot of odd weather out there the next few weeks.

Orange weather warning issued for parts of Republic of Ireland as ex-Hurricane Lorenzo makes its way west
https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-4 ... ow_twitter
Currently a hurricane, Lorenzo is expected to weaken considerably along the way, but will still bring fierce winds, heavy rains, and very high seas to Ireland where it is due to land on Thursday.

Irish Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoghan Murphy has said it will have an "unpredictable impact" on Ireland but flooding and power outages will be likely.

Mr Murphy was speaking after a meeting of the National Emergency Co-ordination Group in Dublin, at which preparations for the storm were discussed.

It sounds like the weather we got a few days ago. On Sunday the high was in the 50s, Monday was hot and muggy with a high of 86°. A cold front came through Monday evening bringing storms and colder temperatures. It's been in the 50s ever since.

We're at 97° and 93% humidity.

But I'm still walking 4 miles in a few minutes here. I'll carry some water. :blink:

Yeah, we’ve had the heat here the last few days, so figured it was heading east. The sun is gone now and I’m getting rain alerts on my watch. This is probably summer’s last hurrah.

Freeze Warnings Upstate; 50-Degree Temperature Swing On LI

https://patch.com/new-york/northfork/s/ ... aign=alert
What a wild weather week it has been. On Tuesday, the high temperature at John F. Kennedy International Airport hit 95 degrees, shattering the October record high. Three days later and freeze warnings has been issued upstate.

"When comparing highs from the peak of the heat early this week to the late-night and early-morning lows this weekend, some locations will experience a 50-degree-Fahrenheit swing," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski said.

Temperatures will remain well above freezing on Long Island, but it will certainly be frigid come Saturday morning. If you are heading outside at 6 a.m., you may want to grab a winter coat as it's expected to be about 42 degrees.

The mercury will climb to near 60 later Saturday, but that's still a good 8-10 degrees below normal for this time of year, the National Weather Service says. Sunday will be a bit warmer with a high near 72.

It's going to be warm the next few days here in the greater SF Bay area, with temps in the 90s in the hills & inland valleys.

It's also tarantula mating season, and when that coincides with warm weather...gazillions of lonely male tarantulas start wandering about looking for their wimmin folk.

I'll be staying indoors with the A/C on.

Incidentally, I took a drive along the Mississippi from St. Paul to Lake Pepin this weekend, and was absolutely floored by the water levels. Not only is the river running really high, the backwaters are higher than I've seen since the '93 flood. There's marshy areas that typically only have a few inches with what looks like a couple feet of standing water.

My lawn is mud. Just walking across it tears up the sod. Running the lawn tractor on it makes mud tracks. We got over 2 inches of rain so far this month, with more coming - and we've got winter coming. I'm thinking we'll be seeing record snowfalls. With the ground completely saturated, the runoff next spring will be spectacular.

I really worry about everyone farther down the river from us. I fear we're going to see flooding next spring on a stupendous scale.

'Explosive' Typhoon Hagibis has Tokyo area in its sights after rapidly gathering strength in Pacific
BY DANIEL TRAYLOR AND MAGDALENA OSUMI
STAFF WRITERS

OCT 9, 2019

Typhoon Hagibis, which the U.S. military’s forecasting agency has put on par with a Category 5 hurricane, is approaching Japan’s main island of Honshu after a rapid intensification in the Pacific and could make a direct pass over the Kanto region this weekend.

The storm, which tracked near the Ogasawara islands through Wednesday, is forecast to continue moving toward Honshu, weakening only slightly before a possible landfall on Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

More precise forecasts for its path are still difficult, and a turn to the west toward central Japan or the east toward the sea remain among the possibilities.

However, its large size means that areas not facing a direct hit could still be significantly impacted. Speaking during a news conference Wednesday, a Meteorological Agency official urged caution against heavy rain, strong winds, high waves and storm surge.
