Comments at YCC Expected to Open Around July 15th
Dr Jeff Masters published a great dust update blog at Yale Climate Connections.
He also gave us a statues update for the community move to a new comment section at YCC:
Comments section expected to be available around July 15. Their developer got pulled off to another project--redoing the web pages for one of Yale's departments that just changed their name.
Dust has hampered the tropics for the most part. National Hurricane Center isn't expecting any tropical activity for the next five days. Being hurricane season with the models missing a lot of upper air data from airplanes down due to corona, watching those model hints and convective blowups.
Was watching a blob off of Florida this morning that was attached to an area of interest that was marked with a yellow X by National Hurricane Center. it has had some model support to pull together a weak brief low off the Mid-Atlantic states. That area was disrupted by dust, plus shear from the upper level low over the Northeast and was dropped by afternoon.
The evening blob to watch is what was the north end of a Tropical wave that broke off and has become a surface trough near 25N 55W. It looks tenacious..especially while battling 40kts of shear. The shear is not expected to let up soon, giving this blob little chance.
Flooding from Midwest to Northeast, Some in the South too.
The previously mentioned deepening upper level low over the Northeast has been fed by moisture that caused flooding in Western Wisconsin that claimed one life where several had driven into a flooded roadway and were swept into a creek yesterday. There was another car in a creek in Tennessee. Lightning in Minnesota. Trees down in New York City. There was flooding in Kentucky. This hospital in Boston had its basement overwhelmed by run-off and was forced to move patients and close.
Stay Safe Everyone!
World of Unrest
So far this June Earth seems to have shifted to even more a state of unrest. Volcanoes have come to life and the earthquake maps are lit up...with so many in Hawaii.

651 earthquakes occurred today. The strongest was 5.3, located 5km WSW of Volcano, Hawaii. Current stats from tertrema.
This is still an unpredictable tropical disturbance. Lot of moisture and factors in play. GEOS-5 and other models has it rain on Texas and North Mexico. Remnants and another wave may compile to set it off in the Bay of Campeche, week after next.

SWELL OF THE YEAR 2018 | THE WEDGE |June 11th 2018| ENTRY #1 | 2018 EDITION | Watershots
Published on Jun 15, 2018Giant Waves hit the Wedge. This was one of the best swells I have witnessed at Wedge. You definitely had to be at the right place at the right time. Easily some of the best waves I have ever seen. Some of the hardest poundings i have taken. Using my Sony A7SII and My Aquatech Water-housing to get these Watershots. Some waves were perfect some waves destroyed you. June 11th, 2018 was incredible and a day I will never forget.
All The Wedge guys were charging. Surfers Mike Harris, Tommy Cantrell, Alex Johnston, Brad Ettinger, Mitchell Grant, Brad Domke and more(tag them if you know them.
Bodyboarders include: Mike Lucas (Man of Water), Hideto Shibata, and more (tag them if you know them)
