I always suspected you would be the one to solve the great economic conundrum of a "free lunch." Now please have Matheny fired. Extreme sarcasm on one, but extreme seriousness on the other. You decide.
Lol, sitting here at Buschhhhhh getting deflated.
Aye, traveled to heaven on this July earth last year in upper lower MI. This year we are sneaking down to Gatlinburg, which has just enough altitude to modify a bit. Next year it's looking like Cape Cod in July.
Sigh, watching these birds is soooo. I mean can they score without a HR?

I am in the tropical downpours and can't get out. A couple hours I'm going to have to drive back through this area I just hope the water is going down by the time I get back. There is a railroad underpass on 14 West of McLeansboro that is notorious for closing the road
It is incredibly heartbreaking. And it proves a sad point, that no matter how hard we try to tell the public to be prepared, we cannot stop all bad things from happening. I am so sorry for this poor family and all who know the young boy.
Trying to make the best of a lousy vacation day watching the power of the ocean. Who would've thought...........? So sad
I realize tomorrow is the headline, but I'm still keeping my eye on that tropical disturbance by the Yucatan. GEFS mean is towards the eastern GOM whereas the EPS is towards the western GOM. PGFS, GFS, and CMC have landfall in Florida. ECMWF has landfall in Mexico, and the UKMET has a track into TX and heading towards AR. I still think odds are slim that it will have any meaningful impact on our weather, but it's something to just keep in mind right now.
The NWS has upped the forecast at Death Valley to 127. As a reminder the 134 record still stands, but is in the process of being reviewed and may get invalidated which would move the 2013 reading of 129 as the highest temperature reading on the planet. So yeah, 127 is really hot!
I was in Phoenix a couple of years ago when the high was 120F (it was the same week Death Valley got up to 129F). I was headed home and remember that they delayed several flights because some of the aircraft specs would not allow them to takeoff when it gets that hot. My flight was not affected, but some were.
Runways aren't long enough to get the lift when temps are that high.
The heat is a double edged sword. You have the thinness of the air, which mimics a higher altitude, and then you have less oxygen, which hampers combustion. So you got a plane that doesn't have the same pickup needing a longer runway. Bad combination
The "dry heat" arguement went out the window for me in 2012...anything above 100* is just miserable and dangerous no matter how humid it is. That's one summer I will never forget. 90* temps by 8am is just uncalled for.
You don't really get dry heat here. 100 with a 30-40 dp, which you never see here, is dry heat. That produces a negative HI. 100 with a 35dp is an HI of 96. The really cool thing about that is getting out of a pool and letting the breeze hit you when dew points are that low. You shiver. The other cool thing is when you sweat you actually get some cooling out of it. Misters work very well in this condition. You can eat outdoors at a restaurant with misters and be perfectly comfortable because the evap cooling works!
I've been out in Phoenix in April and May when it's hitting 95 to 100 with those low dew points and it feels fantastic. I love being out there that time of year.

Heading to Chicago this weekend. Definitely hoping it's cooler by the lake. Blues Festival down at Millennial Park this weekend. Gonna catch a Cubs game Sunday. Gonna be a hot one.
I just checked a website to see if we would be in the shade during the game. Seemed there is a website for everything now. We will be, thank God, and we are in an upper level so we might catch a breeze. Whew! I don't like the day games in St.Louis after mid-may. Kind of a surprise to have it this hot up in Chicago in early June, but we know how summer goes. It does what it wants to
Welcome to the shout box. Just trying this feature out.
MakeitRain: The 12z NAM wants to develop a line of storms through the metro around 1-2pm this afternoon. However, the HRRR is not picking up on this piece. I would not rule out the chance of severe weather as we head into the afternoon.

snowday_lover: I was thinking this was to start late tomorrow night...are we thinking earlier? I'm in Ironton, so I'm not holding my breath for much per the maps that have been drawn up. I'm thinking a little bit of sleet and frz drizzle. Is that correct? It's a balmy 18
