The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track planetary extreme, or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉
Main Topic: Heatwave Chevron to Greatly Expand This Weekend
Dear Diary. U.S. Heatwave Chevron is one dangerous beast that won’t die despite numerous sord jabs by cold fronts this August. Here was the state of the heatwave as of Thursday:
The heat dome in association with Heatwave Chevron will grow over the Southeast into Monday of next week getting up to near 597 decameters and centered on Mississippi:
Notice that a separate heat done will build over the Pacific Northwest and quickly merge with the southern heat done by Monday. This should produce some dangerous gear for that area through early next week.
Fortunately, the southern heat domes will collapse by the middle of next week, and the Pacific Northwest system will retrograde westward into the Gulf of Alaska:
So, just how hot will it get over the weekend? These numbers are very toasty for Saturday, Sunday and Monday for both the Southeast and Northwest:
I’m sure that National Westher Service heat warnings and advisories will be issues for southern portions of the Midwest and Plains, the Pacific Northwest, and will be retained across the South. Stay tuned.
Here is more in association with this coming heat:
Here are some other “ET’s” recorded from around the planet the last couple of days, their consequences, and some extreme temperature outlooks, as well as any extreme precipitation reports:

(As usual, this will be a fluid post in which more information gets added during the day as it crosses my radar, crediting all who have put it on-line. Items will be archived on this site for posterity. In most instances click on the pictures of each tweet to see each article. The most noteworthy items will be listed first.)
