Weird weather patterns

It's hailing again in Colorado. This is the 10th day in a row that we have had serious stormy weather, including hail and, in E. Denver, tornado sightings. One good thing: we need water. One bad thing: grass is growing like crazy making for a terrifying fire hazard in late summer and fall.

Any other areas of the country experiencing odd weather patterns this summer?

We had no spring, frost in June, snow in June. Today in the 80's. Go figure.

About normal here in East Nowhere, with lots of spring rains and some late freeze warnings up until maybe 3 weeks ago.
I have noticed more thunderstorm activity, in fact there is some excitement in the sky just north of me right now. We usually don't get that much intense front activity until July-August.

Forecast for the last three weeks AND the next three months:

Hot, no rain, highs around 100.

Yeah, same here. Had to start watering the grass. Lost about 1/3 of it 2 summers ago so don't want to go through the sodding thing again.

Weather

Maybe I am crazy, but it seems to me that the weather here in southwestern PA has gotten better, more moderate. We had some very cold stretches this winter but not a lot of snow and ice(at least not enough to really bother me since I live very close to my office and travel main thoroughfares). And the summers are by and large not as hot and muggy. Enough rain, but not too much. Maybe I am wishing myself into thinking this is north central coastal CA, my favorite place...well, I guess I am crazy. I grew up about 65 miles to the north of where I live now, and I thought it was bleak back in the wintertime and unbearable most of the summer. Hmmm. Or maybe I am just satisfied for now with where I have wound up after having lived all over.

Weird. We have had a great Spring here until this past week. August-like weather hit this week like the doors of Hell opened. High pressure system sitting out there in the Gulf is keeping it dry and hot here.

Even weirder, one of the weather dudes said this morning that July and August might be a fair bit cooler than normal. I'd pay good money to see that!

We're getting all of that left over rain from Colorado. It keeps moving in from the west. We were 6 inches below normal and now it has been raining or cloudy just about every day for 2 weeks. We are still below normal in moisture tho. If the rain would go away for a week and then come back for a few days, I would be happy. It's been pretty gloomy for the two weeks. The sun comes out once in a while then goes away again.

All the moisture is being pushed away from Texas in a circular pattern from west to east with a lot of northerly movement as it swings around the big high pressure bubble we're stuck with down here.. They're predicting it's not going away soon, so keep your umbrella handy.

I like the avatar pic of the pooch.

Monster tornado today SE of Denver. This video is pretty impressive. It was on the ground for 20 minutes! Luckily, no one was injured.

So far, Chicago has had the coolest June since 1905 (02?) - one of those "weather quiz" things on the news a few days back.

OK with me. No heat, no air conditioning. Niiiiiice

We're actually getting a respite from the heat of the last three weeks. It's only 94 95.
