11 June 2018
Following news that last month was the hottest May on record, it looks
like temperatures are set to soar even higher.
The Met Office has revealed Britain is set for a three-month heatwave
Some forecasters are saying we could even see highs of 33C by early
July - making it the hottest summer in the UK for 12 years.
A Met Office spokesperson said the likelihood for above-average
temperatures is greater than usual.
They added: "For June-August, above-average temperatures are more
likely than below-average temperatures.
"The probability the UK average temperature for June-August will fall
into the warmest of our 5 categories is 40 per cent. The coldest of
our 5 categories is around 5 per cent.
Bookies suspending odds
Leon Brown, chief forecaster at The Weather Channel, said: "33C is
expected by early July as heat from high pressure over Britain builds."
The bookies, meanwhile, are offering the shortest odds yet on this
summer being the warmest since records began. Ladbrokes slashed its
odds to just 5-2 that 2018 will eclipse the scorching heatwave of 2006.

ABC Analysis, 12 Jun 2018
It's called "the flip" or "the rollover", and it has become the primary tool
in cartel investigations globally - now, while details of the accusations
against the ANZ, Deutsche and Citi are not yet known, it's clear already
that one major party has flipped, writes Ian Verrender.

The LW position as practiced by Ridley or Lomborg is to pick the least
threatening result, swear blind it's the `best' science and ignore any
uncertainty or criticism. It's not compatible w/any assessment process.

Possibly a great example of vortex Rossby waves (VRWs) in the NW quadrant of
Hurricane #Bud this morning. These manifest as spiral bands in the inner
core that propagate radially outward to a certain point. Sometimes you can
see them clearly in the convective structure, like this

The sun is NOT the cause of global warming. Plenty of scientific studies
have shown that solar irradiance and temperature have not moved in tandem.
Besides, only the surface and lower parts of the atmosphere have been warmed
(due to greenhouse gases), not the upper atmosphere. pic.twitter.com/Z6vH3SofXN

#Climate skeptics sometimes like to claim that although #GlobalWarming will
lead to more deaths from heat, it will overall save lives due to fewer
deaths from cold. But is this true? Epidemiological studies suggest the

The GFS painted a bullish tropical system impacting southeast TX but has
since ironed out its erroneous data assimilation. Still, an influx of
tropical moisture will move into southeast TX beginning late this week
bringing needed rainfall to the region. (map: @RyanMaue)
