MN is stuck in a blocking pattern. Once it shifts through this farking heat will go back to cooking texass as normal.

New climate model here has actually shown MN to have more warmer days but fewer hot days like recently. Wetter too.

According to the MNDNR climatologist I talked to, our winters will get nuked first, then the real fun begins. I wish I had the isopleth animations he showed me. Those were interesting.

Scientists were saying this about the southern parts of Pakistan, Indian, and Bangladesh a few years ago.  Even the natives can't dissipate body heat during midday.  So they lay in hammocks and douse with water  for a couple of hours around noon.  But as the hours increase, the regions will be uninhabitable by humans and they'll have to move out.  Won't that be interesting.

We could use some rain here in WI. Going to be 94 today. Not desperate for rain yet, but starting to get there.

Just use dew point...and if you think they're the same thing, you're doing it wrong.

Add Sven Sundgaard to your youtube subscriptions if you haven't. He's really good about adding in the real world portions of climate change to his forecasts, which he still makes if you didn't know! It's a shame he got kicked off TV for not tolerating fascists. He recently explained how we can get so much hotter than some southern states due to the effect of the relative moisture content of our air.

So the guy you talked to is probably talking about that, now getting age old, concept of climate vs weather. The omega blocking pattern isn't new to us here though. While it's might seem like it's nice to get to use the fact it's hotter than average today to point out how we're heating up, it's really just the other end of the spectrum of asshole like Senator Snowball who laughed that since it snowed in winter still, where's the warming?

So, just like how you don't win friends with salad... You also don't win friends with hyperbole. If it comes down to it, I'd much rather listen to someone discussing things with a level head than someone spraying me with spittle telling me MN is going to be uninhabitable. Unlike say, the entire American Southwest which as they continue to drain the aquifers is going to turn into a wasteland and we're going to be forced to deal with them migrating places like here which while are getting hotter... Are staying wet.

You're a real asshole if you just use Celsius and don't even provide the temperate in Fahrenheit. If I'm writing for an international audience, I'd also include the temperature in Celsius. fark that guy on principle, many times over.

We were due for a June-uary.

May was still hotter than it should have been, and April was still drier than it should have been.

Do not be so dismissive.

The global human population is down to 7.7 billion.  That's a decrease of around -7.7 billion since about 70,000 years ago, nevermind the sigfigs down in the weeds.

Indeed, we can no longer habitate here :(

How hard can it be to get some graders in there and bulldoze the entire wasteland into Lake Superior? After evacuating the miserable inhabitants, not that they need much incentive

We'll welcome them to the US and addict them to fast food and Little Debbies and most of the troublemakers will lose themselves in the decadence.

I know, we won't, but we should. Our enemies are almost always convinced to just sit here and consume rather than carrying out attacks. With a few notable exceptions.

Share them if you find them.


A big thing in my area is the lack of extended freezes allow forest killing pests to spread.  Hopefully this doesn't happen to MN forests.

In the meantime, you get to enjoy so many people saying "I love this warm weather" on a 60* day in February.  Like a lobster enjoying the warm water of the heating pot.

So... I looked at the observed temps at Minneapolis-St. Paul Intl Airport.

https://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory​/​KMSP.html

For the past four days, I'm seeing highs of:  96ºF, 96ºF, 97ºF, 85ºF

Looks like the highest heat index was on the 10th at 5:53PM, when it hit 97ºF and 33% humidity.

So... wtf is this all about?  Was it some other part of Minnesota?  When did the Wet Bulb temp get up to 35ºC?

Michigan has been cooking as well of late, and a cool-off would be appreciated (especially since the main electricity provider here has started charging 1.5 x the usual rate during peak usage hours, because everyone is using their AC to try to avoid melting in their living rooms after they get home from their sweatbox workplace).

I don't mind being given only Celsius or Fahrenheit as it's not too difficult to calculate one from the other but the one thing I really do detest is when someone does like subby did and give temperature as a number without specifying Celsius or Fahrenheit. It's lazy and presumptuous.

The international audience, on the whole, uses Celsius. The few who don't can convert the numbers easily enough.

Befuddled: There is record drought in the southwest parts of the US. We are in for some hard times.


Parts of Iowa are D2 (Severe Drought) the rest of the state is at some level.

Given that it's forecasted to be in the 90's with no rain for the foreseeable future, it's just going to get worse.

Iowa produces the most corn and soy of any state, we're going to all be boned when crops are ruined.

If you live in the desert southwest and use a swamp cooler to cool your house, wet bulb temperature is kind of a big deal. A properly maintained cooler has an output temperature that runs about 6-8 degrees F above the wet bulb temperature.

And if you're hardcore, you get the wet bulb temperature from a Psychrometric Chart

I assumed it was in reference to Wesley Crusher being a "wet blanket" like the thing you put over a thermometer to get the wet bulb temperature.

I also think subby is a farking arsehole if that's what they meant.
