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.

Insensible before the wave so soon released by callous fate. Affected most, they understand the least, and understanding, when it comes, invariably arrives too late.

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.
