Good morning bloggers,
We fell short of 100° yesterday with a high of 99°. A very weak wind shift and cold front is moving through this morning without even a cloud and it will be slightly cooler the next two days before near 100 degree heat spreads back in. There is no sign of rain and the National Weather Service has now placed our region in worsening drought conditions.

I just looked at the computer models and there isn’t really any chance of rain showing up that pops out at me. There may be a slight chance here and there but the next week to two weeks do not look very promising for any wide spread rain. One thing that does pop out at me is a strong potential for a lot more heat. The water bill is going to be high.
