It's light out with some clouds floating by and I suspect it will get dark later on in the evening.

Then it's Boom Boom out ...and y'all know the rest.

Not necessarily stoned but beautiful...here in the middle of CA land where the freaks meet the farmers. It's somewhere in the 70's, why I'd say it's very close to hot. The wind chill factor makes it bearable though, still almost hot to me. Cuz' I'm hot blooded check it and see...I'm playin' Hot Rats!, at a hundred and three... RPM's.

It's all good, back to you Mr. NG

June warmest on record

June this year was the warmest on record at Niwa's (the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research) most important measuring sites.

New Zealand's Seven Station Series recorded the warmest June on record, with an average of 10.3 degrees Celsius.

That series was derived from seven locations: Auckland, Masterton, Wellington, Hokitika, Nelson, Lincoln near Christchurch and Dunedin.

The month had been "exceptionally warm" with just about all of New Zealand reporting temperatures in the above normal, or well above normal range, Niwa said.

Above normal temperatures are 0.51C to 1.20C above average, well above normal is more than 1.20C above average.

"Perhaps most impressive is how wide-reaching and sustained the warmth was during June," Niwa said.

The Seven Stations average surpassed the previous record for warmest June, 2003.

There have now been nine Junes since 1909 where the departure from average has been greater than 1.0C.

Of those nine instances, five have been since the year 2000 and eight since 1970.

"Dozens" of climate stations placed in the top four for the warmest June ever recorded, Niwa said.

A persistent lack of southerlies had a profound impact on the monthly temperatures. Only one climate station in Middlemarch experienced a June mean temperature that was not either above average or well above average, Niwa said.

June weather highlights:

• The highest temperature was 22.2C, observed at Waione in Hawke's Bay on June 8.

• The lowest temperature was -7.4C, observed at Hanmer Forest in North Canterbury on June 1.

• The highest one-day rainfall was 137 millimetres, recorded at Te Puke in the western Bay of Plenty on June 11.

• The highest wind gust was 161 kmh, at Cape Turnagain on June 21.

• Of the six main centres, Dunedin was the driest and cloudiest, Auckland was the sunniest and warmest, Tauranga the wettest, and Christchurch the coolest.

• Of the available, regularly reporting sunshine observation sites, the sunniest four centres so far in 2014 (January to June) are: Whakatane (1392 hours), Tauranga (1261 hours), Auckland – Albany (1214 hours) and Takaka (1207 hours).

A persistent lack of southerlies had a profound impact on the monthly temperatures. Only one climate station (Middlemarch) experienced a June mean temperature that was not either above average or well above average, Niwa said.

"Perhaps most impressive is how wide reaching and sustained the warmth was during June," Niwa said.

The Seven Stations average surpassed the previous record for warmest June - in 2003.

There have now been nine Junes since 1909 where the departure from average has been greater than 1.0C.

Of those nine instances, five have been since the year 2000 and eight since the 1970.

No forest fires and no drought. Breezy enough for wind chimes.

Yesterday it rained in Ardèche (south east of France), where I've a vacation home. A Cevenol Event occurred, in which warm, moist air from the mediteranean moved north, colliding with the mountains of Ardèche. The result ? Between 50cm and 80cm of rain in a 24hour period. That's more than half a meter of water PER SQUARE METER OF LAND ! Massive evacuations of camping sites along the river 6 dead and counting in the lower valleys. The ardèche river rose 6m within a few hours. Our place is on the mountains so no worry. But I wish I had there to witness these incredible events.

Can't we have a fucking Fall anymore? Earlier in the week, it was 90 degrees with the air conditioner running constantly. Now, this weekend lows dipping into the upper 30's. Had to turn the heat on.

"The early morning mist" they predicted for this morning turned out to be rain; hang the weatherman!

It's supposed to storm here all weekend. I went grocery shopping after work last night, so I wouldn't have to get out the rest of the weekend. Got a fridge full of beer, plenty of herb, and a houseful of food. Bring on the storms.

It's like I have a twin......I do that every weekend....with or without a storm :lol:
and I don't answer the door. I might check the peep, but there's strict criteria to be met before that door gets opened...

In reality, I do that every weekend too. I usually grocery shop on Saturday morning. But, it was quite enjoyable doing it Friday night. Now, I don't even have to crank my car until tomorrow morning. This may become a regular weekly routine. :mrgreen:

I thought only Khan got lost in Scott's mist ("I cannae hold 'er Captain!").
After yesterday's weather forecast I think they should draw and quarter the weatherman after they hang him.
