There are signs that the “crazy” weather pattern we have been in this summer (cool and pleasant) is about to change.  Dan Satterfield posts some commentary in Dan’s Wild Wild Science Journal at the American Geophysical Union blog site here.  In the next two weeks we may shift from the current cool conditions to weather that is warmer than normal (think upper 90s).  The wind flow pattern will also be more conducive to steering tropical storms into the Gulf states if one should develop ( and we are now entering peak hurricane season).
