California at present reminds me of February 2009 in Melbourne:
Wow. That would be hell.
50deg in the worst place on earth
A lot of melting celebs
Those Rocky Mountains cities have unbelievable forecasts over the next couple of days
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......... )
Can you imagine what Venice Beach would have been like?
*wrong thread mind you
Check Denver’s skew T’s plots for some serious dimension.
Just your garden variety climate change... nothing to see here.
A DGZ that would make any Aussie weep.
Hectic directional/vert shear profile on Tuesday.
Half an inch PWAT too...
Shear is off the hook...
Ever seen a 34 degree change at 850hpa?
Never, but it is 2020...
Nov 11, 1911 in Oklahoma City would be in that zone. 28c in the afternoon, dropping to -8c before midnight after a cold front.
^^ must be a nightmare for the gardeners among us......

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.
That's at 350m asl mind you...
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.
I've been in Calgary during some gnarly temps
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) .
Boulder CO has dropped to 18c from an earlier 32c:
Sounds like a southerly buster through Sydney.
Still a bit to go!
Hahaha!! I was going to say the same thing but was waiting for the further drop update!
Temp reading just before midnight was 6.7c. So a drop of over 25c since late afternoon. Impressive nonetheless.
Thanks for the update and yes, impressive.
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!
World’s largest hail record may be challenged by exceptionally large 20+ cm (8 inches) hailstones hit the capital of Libya on Tuesday, Oct 27th.

Not really sure where else to put this, but here is some reading a friend gave me about the climatic impact of the Australian bushfires last summer:
