(this pink flower hibiscus was the only one of the batch. All the others are white)
The title for today sums it up. The high temperature has risen to the 90 degree mark for 3 straight days (or very close to it) with no change in sight for the next week. Unfortunately, the ritualistic thunderstorms are not in the offing until at least Thursday. And even then they will be very far and few between. High pressure will hold fast between weak frontal passage attempts and during them as well. Meanwhile, things have picked up in the tropics with two tropical waves and a weakly organized area of low pressure, but I'm not coming out of the coffin for any of this activity unless we see some very significant changes in the upper level pattern down this way. And like our forecast is indicating, no such changes are in in sight.
For now it's back to the A/C morning, noon, and night. Our low last night was 79 degrees. It's cooler inland of course, as it always is during the late night and early morning, but the ocean is still warm and greatly modifying the air in these parts. The air show is now over, and for the most part was pretty uneventful as far as air shows go. Nothing like the good old days at Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
