Discussion

An unusually strong Canadian high pressure for mid-June will supply us with comfortable humidity levels, pleasant temperatures and rain-free conditions right through Monday. The weather will be a "home run" for the interesting weekend series between the 1st place Yankees and 1st place Nationals. Who would have predicted a couple of months ago that we would have highs only near 80 in mid-June and the Yankees and National would both be in 1st place? It'll turn warmer and a bit more humid on Tuesday and then we'll likely return to the 90's on Wednesday. Later next week, we’ll have to monitor the Gulf of Mexico for possible tropical storm development. As far as the sun is concerned, for the second day in a row sunspot AR1504 erupted and sent a coronal mass ejection (CME) towards the Earth. This new CME is expected to merge with the initial CME from two days ago to deliver a combined blow to the Earth's magnetic field on Saturday. Sky watchers should watch for auroras very late tonight and again tomorrow night.
