A few clouds move in and attempt to provide cover from the sun but there are too few and the so has such a bold August like attitude for early July that they are no match. Presently it 96. A slight improvement over the 100+ degree days we've had.
There is a chance according to the local forecast for some scattered showers after midnight.
The weather patterns these past ten days or so (one forgets how many triple digit days we've had when the brain is this hot this long) have seemed to me oddly different from most summer heat waves I recall in that the number of states hit all at the same time is insane. It concerns me that with the relatively quick shrinkage of the polar ice cap the past couple of years and some of the significant weather changes on some of the other continents, that we are in fact seeing some significant global warming. Yes, I know that one heat wave a global warming does not make. There are however a growing number of factors that are troubling even if they are not conclusive.
