It just keeps going and going and going. The sun that is. Next week we might get a few clouds but all in all it really doesn’t look much different from now. Beautiful summer weather!

Here’s a picture of the huge high pressure ridge that has been dominating us for nearly a month. This picture is for next Friday! Still going strong.

This is for Sunday of BC Day weekend… it predicts a weakening of the ridge and possibly a front approaching us, but as it is at the very furthest reaches of the forecast, I’d just take it as interesting possibilities. It could very easily evaporate.

You can thank a jetstream that is weak and disorganized (animation here) for our long stretch of stationary weather:
