    I want to send my thanks and appreciation for your weather blog. I’ll look at it when I’m at home and especially when I’m away so that home can be brought to me.
    I’ve had a question lately though. Predicted temperature highs seeming to be consistently under the mark. As though the weather bureau cannot adjust to a possible new norm. Is this my imagination or have you recognized something of this?

    • Hi Kerry,
      Thanks for your comment and appreciation—I, well, appreciate it!

      I guess I’m not necessarily noticing a consistent “under shooting” of daily predicted high temps. Yesterday called for upper 70s to low 80s for valley locations and that’s pretty much what we saw… I do notice, however, that we’re seeing pretty broad swings, at times, in temperatures from low to high. There’s a lot of discussion in weather circles that climate change is affecting these swings by adding lots more energy to the atmosphere by way of moisture and heat. In the winter particularly, the jet stream flow has seen some pretty wild fluctuations in recent years contributing to big swings in temperatures day to day along with powerful moisture laden storms. Whatever the case, we’re in very interesting times here…

      Cheers, John
