Savor This Weekend's Cool Airmass

The dog days of summer are almost upon us.  In my view, July is a four letter word in Utah.  Too hot for my blood.

Now that we're in the heart of June, it is essential to savor every cool airmass that slides into the state as you never know which one will be the last before the relentless monotony and heat of July is upon us.  It looks like we will have one visiting this weekend.  The models (both the GFS and the ECMWF) are pulling in cooler air late Friday and Friday night, dropping 700-mb temperatures to 0ºC by Saturday morning.

The impact of this cold-air intrusion will likely be a high on Saturday in the low 70s.  The last time we saw a high temperature below 75ºF was May 24th, so what a heavenly change it will be.

  1. Well, you guys just suffer it out up here in the desert.

    I'm leaving this weekend to go home to Texas until snow flies again. We live down near the Big Thicket Swamp. It's hot, but it's a damp hot so your skin doesn't get all dried out and we never have dust storms. We live on a spring fed lake so if gets too hot we just roll the kayak a couple of times.
