in search of the Bermuda High

As long as I have been following weather,which is most of my life,I have always expecting to see the Bermuda High set up off the east coast at least two or three times during the summer and pumped some summer heat into the Northeast.So far this year,there hasn't been a hint of a Bermuda High,instead our weather has been determined by systems dropping down out of Canada.We consider it a bonus if we hit 80.
We still have a ways to go,but at this point no summer heat in sight.We will hit the 80's this weekend,but low 80's at best. So I will keep searching for the Bermuda High as the summer quickly slips by.It's going to be a very short summer this year.

Solar heating of North America causes the Bermuda High. Air rises over the continent, so it has to sink over the adjacent western Atlantic Ocean. Life is made interesting by the climatic variability leading to an array of versions of weak, strong, expansive, transient modes of this annual synoptic feature.

Emmy,I'm not an expert in geography,but pretty sure a Bermuda high won't be found in Texas,but then again,when temps get up that high,does it matter what you call it?I'm just looking for 80,and I'll be a happy guy

Quoting NEwxguy:
the leak in my roof are dampening that joy.


Leak in your roof? Oh No! That's all you need on top of everything else! Hopefully, you don't live in an area of MA that was pummeled by hail, strong winds and rain the other day! Our area has been saturated but no problems with flooding or any other damage so far -- Thank Goodness!

Hope you're able to fix the leaky roof soon! Wish those mushrooms were of the edible variety.

I agree,lower electric bills and lack of noisy ac,which would normally make me very happy,but the skin still winter white and the mushrooms springing up all over my lawn and the leak in my roof are dampening that joy.

Quoting masshysteria:
I'll keep the search light on for ya --

The only positive side to these lower than average temps has been lower electric bills and not having to listen to fans or A/C running.

Nevertheless, ideally would like a lot more sunshine and heat without the humidity!




Amen.
