Hot, Hotter, Hottest
Add “heat domes” to your climate change vocabulary.
Heat domes make the drought in the West even worse and, according to climate scientist Daniel Swain, “there’s a crystal clear human fingerprint on extreme heat and extreme heat events . . . climate change is making these sorts of things worse.”
Update: models not really backing off on this one. Highest confidence in extreme and possibly historically hot temps this weekend/next week is across Oregon, but could also extend across Washington and northern CA depending on how things evolve. #CAwx #ORwx #WAwx https://t.co/kMLQKhkVQ1

Sigh. Summertime seems to be getting less fun every year . . .
