    Those Rocky Mountains cities have unbelievable forecasts over the next couple of days
    Denver, Colorado

    And Caspar, Wyoming

    Near century heat then snow and frost 48 hours later ! Fire and Ice.....
    And we grizzle about Melbourne's changeable weather..... lol !
    A very strange forecast indeed....

    And a brutal summer ( continuing into September ) in the south west US.
    Not a great deal of relief at night either....
    ( Imagine Marble Bar with a population of 2 million......... )

    Check Denver’s skew T’s plots for some serious dimension.

    Just your garden variety climate change... nothing to see here.

    Nov 11, 1911 in Oklahoma City would be in that zone. 28c in the afternoon, dropping to -8c before midnight after a cold front.

    Here is a complete and detailed rundown of the historical record heat event across SW California today (Sept. 6th) in the Record Event Report below. Click on the URL Below and be amazed. #cawx #LAheat #heatwave #Socal #LAweather http://go.usa.gov/xGDFv

    Anaheim: 105F. Old record: 100, 2013
    Santa Ana: 110F. Old record: 103 in 1984
    San Diego: 100F. Old record: 97 in 2011
    Oceanside Harbor: 85F. Old record: 83, in 2004
    Vista: 107F. Old record: 102, in 2004
    Chula Vista: 102F. Old record: 97, in 2011
    Riverside: 117F. Old record: 115, in 1955
    Lake Elsinore: 117F. Old record: 114, in 1955
    San Jacinto: 114F. Old record: 108, in 1988
    Escondido: 115F. Old record: 104, in 1955
    Ramona: 112F. Old record: 102, in 1983
    Big Bear: 87F. Old record: 83, in 1982
    Idyllwild: 104F. Old record: 92, in 2013
    Palomar Mountain: 98F. Old record: 94, in 1955
    Campo: 110F. Old record: 104, in 1955
    Palm Springs: 120F. Old record: 114, in 1986
    Thermal: 17F. Old record: 115, in 2008
    Indio: 116F -tie- 116, in 2008
    Borrego: 117F. Old record 115, in 1989

    MUCH cooler near the coast tomorrow out there.. Everyone else cools down starting Tuesday.. That said, Off Shore " Santa Ana " type wind event look likely at the same time across CA so it might not cool off as much as it could...

    **Quick correction, in the Bay Area's list, Santa Cruz was actually 104F today ( a record. Old record was 98F in 2004 ) not 102F. Wasn't corrected before the data was posted.

    Death Valley topped out at 122F today, a record.. Was 125F yesterday.. Also a record. Hard to believe either would be record highs there.

    Also check out Spearfish South Dakota which is 1,100m asl and their large temperature rise and then fall again back in the 40's. Something like 50 degree change up and then 50 degree change down in the same day.

    Yeah, you’d expect those leeward towns of the Rockies/mid-West to hold the crown.
    Still at elevation, yet low enough to see foehn downsloping at the intersect of a large frontal boundary.

    Incidentally, I thought I would go back and look at one of the biggest temp changes in Australia. Feb 1-2 2005 stands out for me.

    Kerang went from 39.0c to 10c with a max temp on Feb 2 of just 11.7c! In the Alps, Mt Hotham Airport went from 27.0 to 5.1c. A bigger change occurred there Feb 8-9 2009 though (31.1 to 5.5c).

    Thats why I was interested at 850hpa....

    My research found Montana had one of the biggest temp swings in history.
    The largest recorded temperature change in one place over a 24-hour period occurred on January 15, 1972 in Loma, Montana, when the temperature rose from −54 to 49 °F (−47.8 to 9.4 °C) .

    Temp reading just before midnight was 6.7c. So a drop of over 25c since late afternoon. Impressive nonetheless.

    I can remember visiting family ( down from Darwin ) in 1990.....45.8c at Tocumwal on the 3/1.... next day we drove down to friends place on Phillip Island, but stopped off and did the Puffing Billy train thingy on the way... was 37c at Bonnie Doon north of the Divide before noon, and 17c in the Dandenongs an hour south...
    Then about 15c the next day in Cowes. Us Darwinites had SFA winter clothes, and the mates house ( newly built ) at Cowes had no heating.... was pretty grim...haha. Was too cold to do the Koala and Penguin stuff, let alone fish off the beach.... !

    Yep, I remember that day well. 42c in Bendigo, went to the One Day cricket at the MCG where the change had blown thru and we were shivering in the old Southern Stand next to a seriously out-of-control Bay 13. Merv Hughes was on fire that day....

    That looks awfully familiar....

    Boulder CO is now subzero and snowing. Incredible - 34c max temp one day, and 2c max temp the next!
