Weird summer.

This summer in Chicago has had 50 days below normal and only 4 days above 90. :shock: On the other hand, Alaska and NW Canada have been logging record highs. :shock: It seems the severely buckled jet stream is to blame, creating the omega block in the west and persistent troughs to the east. Apparently the pattern is to shift in the coming weeks. Perhaps the so-called Indian Summer period will be warmer than actual summer?

Last summer was somewhat cool especially in June, but September and into mid-October were very warm, with September logging heat-warning criteria for a couple days.

What will next summer bring? Snow? (I'm kidding) :lol:
