Suppose to go up to 92 degrees today. That is the record set in 1964

And then there's:

Dust Bowl-ification of U.S. Southwest leads to 8-fold jump in Valley Fever cases

As the region dries out, infections from inhaling soil-dwelling fungus see stunning jump.

The infection rate of Valley Fever in the Southwest United States has gone up a stunning 800 percent from 2000 to 2011, as dust storms have more than doubled.

New research directly links the rise in Valley Fever to the rise in dust storms, which in turn is driven by climate change. Valley Fever, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls “a fungal lung infection that can be devastating,” is caused by inhaling soil-dwelling fungus. When the soil dries out and turns to dust, the wind can make the fungus airborne....

NEW YORK (AP) — A record-breaking blast of summer-like weather is hitting New York and other parts of the Northeast, squashing memories of a cold, rainy spring.

The National Weather Service said New Jersey's Newark Liberty International Airport recorded a sweltering 97 degrees on Monday, breaking its 1973 record of 95 degrees.

New York's LaGuardia Airport reached 95 degrees, topping its 1988 record of 92 degrees. Central Park tied its previous record of 93 degrees, set in 1973.

Temperatures were a bit lower on Long Island, where Islip reached 91 degrees, topping its 1988 record by 3 degrees.

It will take several days of heat wave to squash the memories of this last months cold dreary spring. Having to put the heat on in June is just so wrong.

Entire town of Churchill, Canada cut off from supplies as a record quick melt washes out the only train line into the town. (No roads go there)

The damaging floods and historic record water flows came after two powerful March blizzards walloped the town, located about 1,000 kilometres northeast of Winnipeg.

The track bed was washed away in 19 locations, a preliminary assessment showed. Five bridges are visibly damaged and 30 more bridges and 600 culverts — structures that allow water to pass under the track — will need to be checked for structural integrity

While not exactly a booming port this is bas news for them as the shipping season is typically only four to five months when Hudson's bay is ice free.

Japan floods death toll rises to 15

... Aerial TV footage on Friday showed desperate residents of one isolated area using uprooted trees to spell out "SOS" for rescuers to see.

Fallen trees smashed into houses in Asakura, which saw more than 50 centimetres (almost 20 inches) of rain in a 12-hour period to Wednesday night.

Record Rain Pounds Paris, Shutters Metro Stations

The national weather service Meteo France said 6.8 centimetres (2.6 inches) of rain fell in a violent two-hour storm late Sunday, dramatically ending days of hot and humid weather.

A record-breaking 4.9 centimetres (1.92 inches) fell in one hour, equivalent to three weeks' rainfall in an average July, the agency said.
The previous one-hour record for rainfall in Paris was set on July 2 1995, when 4.7 cms were recorded.


Sunday's downpour forced the closure of about 15 stations due to flooding, three of which remained shuttered early Monday, but traffic was otherwise normal, Paris transport authority, the RATP, said.

In June 2016, a three-day downpour led the river Seine in Paris to rise to its highest level in three decades.

Many of its tributaries broke their banks, leading to flooding and the evacuation of more than 20,000 people in northern France.

Scientists from France's Laboratory for Climate and Environment Sciences warned at the time that global warming was to blame for the increased intensity and frequency of such storms.

10 Hurt In Freak Istanbul Storm

At least 10 people were hurt, two of them seriously, when a violent thunderstorm struck Istanbul on Thursday, bombarding the city with hailstones the size of golfballs, local media said.

The storm, which lasted about 20 minutes, paralysed traffic and caused flash floods that submerged cars in some streets, according to pictures on social media.

Sixteen planes which had been heading to the city's Ataturk airport were routed to other destinations, the pro-government Anadolu news agency reported.

City hall said more than 7,000 people had been mobilised to deal with the aftermath of the storm.

A large crane overturned at the Haydarpaşa Port, starting an explosion and a subsequent fire that was later brought under control.

Around 230 trees were uprooted, nearly 90 roofs collapsed and a number of fires broke out but were quickly extinguished, it said in a statement.

Further storms were possible in the night, it added.

The incident occurred just nine days after Istanbul was pounded by heavy rains and winds of up to 80 kilometres (50 miles) per hour, flooding streets and metro stations and disrupting tram lines, but without causing casualties.

The municipality said on average 65 millimetres (2.5 inches) of rain fell on July 18 while the district of Silivri experienced as much as 128 millimetres.

An Atlas Jet plane made an emergency landing Thursday at the Istanbul Atatürk International Airport after a hailstorm caused severe damaged to its exterior.

The footage showed that the plane landed successfully at the airport thanks to the experienced pilot after it was struck by the summer storm and hail cracked its windshield.

On the BC coast we are supposed to hit 37 by Thursday. Where I live this is at least 10 deg warmer than usual...maybe more. The BC interior is burning up and it started earlier than normal fire seasons....by at least 2 weeks. Our coast loggers have been on early shift for all of July and I expecvt ther 'woods' to be closed in a few days.

I plan to put the hammer and lumber down by Thursday and go fishing. :-D

Heavy Flooding Overwhelms Miami Beach, Parts of Miami

Image

... "We have mobilized flood teams throughout the city, but we are currently experiencing an unprecedented amount of rainfall with a rate of over 7 inches per hour due to the remnants of Tropical Storm Emily," Miami Beach officials warned. "This amount of rainfall is twice our design criteria for our storm water infrastructure." Video

... the unusually heavy rains cleared out the normally busy Mary Brickell Village in Miami and caused gridlock during the evening commute in Miami Beach. Cars stalled amid the rising water while at least one condominium lobby and garage was overcome by the flood waters. There were even reports of flooding in the Sunset Harbour neigborhhood of Miami Beach, which recently underwent a series of improvements to guard against rising sea levels.
“I thought we were going to fix this three to four years ago… we been at this five years”

Juan, a local restaurant owner, was talking about the beaches huge financial commitment to install pumps to combat sea rise and the not so rare down pours. But not all the pumps are installed and a power outage knocked several off line. The Miami Beach project to repair streets and install water pumps cost the city about $400 million, yet it appears nothing has changed.
"After $400 million of investment to raise the streets and after businesses suffered through three years of construction, we are still flooding the same way as before," he said. "We still had to pay taxes and get permits those years. Where did the money go?"

One Miami Beach resident asked her son to tweet a message to Miami Beach police that motorists were driving too fast for conditions.
"Idiots are driving down our street at speed and pushing the water way up people's driveways and sidewalks and I'm sure into people's homes"

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - After days of heavy rainfall, Miami Beach and Brickell business owners and residents have been left to do major damage control in the hardest hit areas.

“We pretty busy out here, man. Right now, I got about 15,” said one of many tow truck drivers on Miami Beach working overtime.

One man’s truck stalled out due to flooding on the corner of Lennox Avenue and 14th Street. “Car just shut off going through this puddle,” said Julian Allison. “I don’t know, I’m just stuck here. I don’t really know what to do.”

Another driver said he didn’t want to even start his vehicle. “I don’t want to try to start the engine because if the water got inside, then it’s gonna be a mess,” said the man. “I’m thinking about moving somewhere else.”
