It’s going to be another hot weekend! Nothing really exciting happening in the weather. The only thing of note really is that El Nino is returning in the South Pacific . It is just on the verge of becoming a “moderate” El Nino according to Jeff Masters at Wunderblog.

And this wouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone here, but June 2009 was the 2nd warmest June on record narrowly missing the top spot in 2005.

Here’s the world map for temperature anomalies, see you all on Monday!

  1. Re past hot weather. Seems when I was a kid in the 50’s we had some pretty hot days. If you weren’t in the lake by May 24th you were a sissy. Always got burnt at the May 24th parade! Tried cooking an egg on the side walk once —– forgot to clean the surface first —– ate it anyway!!!
