More record-setting heat; Waldo Canyon Fire consumes 15,000 acres

Tuesday's heat toppled many records in the Central U.S., particularly in Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas. On Monday and Tuesday combined, 11 locations tied or broke their all-time record high temperature, 78 locations broke their all-time record high for the month of June, and 382 daily high records fell. Some notable Tuesday records from our Weather Historian:

115° in McCook, Nebraska is the all-time record for any month. The old records for site are 114° 7/20/1932 and for June 112° 6/5/1933—both set in the heat waves of the 1930s. Yesterday's 115° at Mc Cook also broke the all-time Nebraska state June record of 114° which was set in Franklin in 1936.

105° in Denver, Colorado, ties Monday's all-time record, and ties the 5-day record for number of days above 100°.

101° in Colorado Springs, Colorado is the all-time undisputed record high for any month.

111° in Miles City, Montana is the all-time high for any month.

111° in Lamar, Colorado tied that all-time heat record in any month.

115° in Hill City, Kansas is the new June record, but fell short of all-time 117° reading, and one degree short of Kansas state June record.

110° in Dodge City, Kansas ties the all-time high for any month, which was just set last June.

Wheat Ridge, Colorado (103°) and Cedar Bluff Dam, Kansas (110°) also tied their all-time record highs on Tuesday. Our Weather Historian Christopher C. Burt, who mused that this heat wave is starting to shape up like the record setting heat waves of the 1930s, will have a full-length post on this week's incredible heat wave on Friday. Today the heat shifts eastward, with eastern Iowa and northwest Illinois in an excessive heat watch, and eastern Kansas and western Missouri in an excessive heat warning. St. Louis could start to see 100°+ today, and Chicago will likely have their warmest day on Thursday. This heat wave will reach the eastern U.S. by Friday.

Waldo Canyon Fire engulfs parts of Colorado Springs

Firefighters are "on the offensive" on Wednesday as they fight the Waldo Canyon Fire, which started Saturday afternoon for reasons unknown. The fire is 5% contained as of Wednesday afternoon, though firefighters are using triage protocol, according to the AP, to save the homes that they are able to save. 30,000 people have fled their homes on Wednesday as the fire grew to over 15,000 acres. The region remains in a red flag warning as conditions continue to be unfavorable for fighting both this and the High Park fire, which continues to burn west of Fort Collins. Humidity is expected to remain around or less than 10%, and winds could gust up to 50 mph.


Figure 1. The Waldo Canyon Fire as seen on Wundermap, which is burning just northwest of Colorado Springs, and is 5% contained. This fire has engulfed over 15,000 acres since it began on Saturday, as firefighters try to fight the blaze under weather conditions favorable for wildfires.

Debby Says Farewell

Tropical Depression Debby is in the Atlantic and moving further out to sea and rainfall is winding down. Over the past week, Debby has dropped more than 20 inches of rain over northern Florida, and widespread amounts of 10+ inches as far south as Port Charlotte. While still classified as tropical, Debby seems to be losing her tropical characteristics as it merges with the frontal boundary that guided it across Florida. The depression continues to be hammered by westerly wind shear, and could be classified as post-tropical or dissipate all together soon.


Figure 2. Rainfall accumulation over the past 7 days as of June 27. Debby has dropped more than 20 inches of rain over northern Florida, and widespread amounts of 10+ inches as far south as Port Charlotte. Image modified from NWS.

Meantime, in the main development region of the Atlantic, the National Hurricane Center is giving an African easterly wave a 10% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next 48 hours. This is the first main development region activity we've seen so far this season, though its peak usually doesn't happen until later in the Summer and early Fall. This wave is producing some thunderstorm activity which is visible on satellite, and it appears to have moderate mid-level circulation. Wind shear in the region is relatively low, only 10-15 knots, and the wave is moving into a more favorable wind shear zone, which will remain until it reaches the Lesser Antilles. The moisture in and around this wave is also relatively low. I would also put this wave's probability of development at minimal over the next few days.

Debby better be reincarnated by the NHC at 5PM...

Warm core still (based on FSU phase diagram)

Round, tight low level circulation

Persistent convection near the center (admittedly not over, but closer than many times while she was over the Gulf)


And that talk of it being entangled in a front is foolish, if anything that washed out front is a divider on tropospheric moisture. Debby is not getting any baroclinic energy from it...

Apparently, the website is overloaded. I was trying to access this site for 30 minutes before saw your post with your link.

The wildfire situation in Colorado is devastating. First, our thoughts and prayers must go to the many families who have lost their homes and precious treasures. Secondly, our thanks must go to the many brave firefighters who are risking life and limb to battle these blazes in the worst of conditions. Thirdly, we feel for the many business owners and workers in the many resort areas of the Rocky Mountains who are losing their sources of income.

Finally, anyone who thinks that the frequency and severity of these wildfires has no linkage to AGW or Climate Change is seriously deluded!


It's back up now.

It got to 101 in Tomball so far, but we had an outflow boundary from a dying storm nearby push through, which drove the temp down to 86. (Its recovered in the last 15 minutes to 92...)

Nope. The (NHC)ATCF has been tracking exDebby to (nearly) the center of the AreaOfInterest.
If a TropicalCyclone pops up in that AOI, it'll be a revivification of Debby.

Can I ask someone to go here and save radar images of post-tropical storm Debby as it passes to our north late on friday night and send them to

me. I will be on an island with no electricity camping during this time (hopefully I will be safe :S) and I want to have some record of the storm.

Thanks.






He said just save anything that looks cool and the storm as it passes north of the island, you dont have to save the whole thing of the passage.

For those in the western United States hoping for a respite from the raging wildfires that have plagued several states, the outlook isn't good: Much of the West is at high risk for continued wildfires due to unusually dry and hot conditions, and officials warn that it could get worse in certain areas as the summer draws on.

Good question. I'll admit that I don't understand the Palmer Drought Index or how it's calculated to give you an answer. Hopefully someone else can help.

In the meantime, this is from the NCDC page:
The Palmer Drought Severity Index (PDSI) (known operationally as the Palmer Drought Index (PDI)) attempts to measure the duration and intensity of the long-term drought-inducing circulation patterns. Long-term drought is cumulative, so the intensity of drought during the current month is dependent on the current weather patterns plus the cumulative patterns of previous months. Since weather patterns can change almost literally overnight from a long-term drought pattern to a long-term wet pattern, the PDSI (PDI) can respond fairly rapidly.

Seems like the low trying to organize a bit, no real heavy t storm activity yet but as a feature its interesting.

No real wind shear there atm.

By the way, I am datanerd nice to meet everyone here. Been around this site for around 10 years now, occasionally reading when things got sketchy. Been through Ike, Rita, and Allison and everything in between. Live and work in ( or rather out of) Galveston.

Been familiar with meterology, weather/models ect for about 18 years. Didn't really get into it until the early 90s.

Quoting OldLeatherneck:


Apparently, the website is overloaded. I was trying to access this site for 30 minutes before saw your post with your link.

The wildfire situation in Colorado is devastating. First, our thoughts and prayers must go to the many families who have lost their homes and precious treasures. Secondly, our thanks must go to the many brave firefighters who are risking life and lmbe to battle these blazes in the worst of conditions. Thirdly, we feel for the many business owners and workers in the many resort areas of the Rocky Mountains who are losing their sources of income.

Finally, anyone who thinks that the frequency and severity of these wildfires has no linkage to AGW or Climate Change is seriously deluded!
Absolutely. Superprayers from us to them..
