Cool Down Coming


All throughout the month of May the lower 48 has been baking in summer heat. The continental US has been stuck in this ridge since the beginning of May. This pattern has left many to believe that we are in for a brutal summer when it comes to the heat. The pattern is finally going to break as we begin the month of June.

The pattern has been blocked as an upper level low established itself over Greenland for the majority of May. This upper level low has brought record snowfall to places in Canada. While the continental US and Europe have been baking underneath an upper level ridge.
