I don't know about you, but I'm sick of the heat. I'd love to see a morning with a minimum temperature in the 50s so I can throw the windows open and let the cool air pour in.
Thus, in addition to keeping an eye on Irene, I'm searching for signs of a cooler airmass. It's a ways out, but the 0600 UTC GFS is showing signs of the potential of a cold-frontal passage on Thursday.
The GFS ensemble members (from 0000 UTC) all put a trough over the west, but with a wide range of positions and amplitudes.
So, we can't count on it, but even a weak trough moving into would bring some relief, even if it just knocks temperatures down a few degrees and shuns out the monsoon moisture that is keeping our minimum temperatures so high. Let's keep an eye on the models and our fingers crossed.
