North America is, again, on the verge of developing a highly anomalous jet stream pattern that is far more indicative of a winter time pattern than that of a relaxed jet stream confined to the northern reaches of the US and predominantly resides in Canada. Not so this year where winter time patterns remain present and are responsible for some very odd summertime weather. Odd as in freaky stalled out extreme patterns resulting in flooding east of the Mississippi and drought accompanied by extreme heat in the West.
It is a summer of extremes.
A massive operation more than 1,000 miles of the Oregon Coast and more trails evident, in particular, east of Tropical Storm Chantal.
