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.

  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!!!
