Chicago Tribune ^ | 7/26/13 | Ellen Jean Hirst

You might want to put aside any plans for the beach this weekend. The high temperature on Saturday is forecast to stay one notch below 70 degrees, threatening the record for July 27.

Lows are expected to dip into the mid and upper 40s in some suburbs Saturday night, with northern suburbs experiencing slightly colder and southern suburbs slightly warmer temps conditions.

I’m sure Al Gore has an explanation for this.

They can rub some coal on themselves to keep warm.

That’s if Barry will allow it.

I guess you have to call it “mild Global Warming” or just weather.

It’s going to be an early fall. IMO

I’ve noticed spider webs that usually come out in early fall already on the flowers and shrubs. This may be a short summer.

Actually the Summer here has been milder than normal, haven’t had nearly as many triple-digit days here as in the past few years.

Where are you located?

I’m in southwestern Colo. and I think it’s going to be a short summer, too.

Tough to notice when you work outdoors, like I do. It's just downright h.o.t.

All I know is that it has been wet, wet, wet. Most years I am down to mowing once every couple of weeks (or couple of months last year) in July. It has been every four to five days since Spring this year.

Highs in the low sixties? Wow. I can't even think with that.

Of course, five months from now, we'll be outside working in near freezing conditions.

Ah well....such is life. Thank goodness we even have work to go to :-)

In Southern California, it feels more like October than July. It even rained last night. July almost never sees rain.

Now you finally get it. It's the theory that defines all things living or dead, explains all, knows all, it's the perfect theory.

When my dad was a kid in the 50’s there was snow in July in SE Iowa one time. I know ‘47 was also a brutal cold year with no real summer.

This fall type weather pattern already is worrisome. It might be a nasty long winter.

ts actually going to get a lot colder in the next few years.

Google solar cycle 24 and solar cycle 25. we are in 24 now and it is a small one( we should start seeing the effects in a few years, extremely cold and long winters). already this spring was the coldest in memory.

The governmentS spent 30 years funding fake research for a Hoax called global warming. If this doesn’t show people that government is the threat and that government/socialism can never work then I don’t know what will.

I’ve had a lot of debates with democrats. and they all believe in global warming. I tell them it’s a hoax and they look at me like I have 2 heads. they really believe the evil news media. I tell them I’ll see you in 2 years when the world will start getting colder (solar cycle 24 ) . will these democrats realize that the gov and media has been lying to them for 30 years and then realize what else they’ve been lied to about?

I live outside St. Louis and yesterday I drove through a conservation area in St. Charles and noticed that the Monarch butterflies are already migrating. I usually don’t see migration here until early or mid September.

You’re right. I believe there have only been 5 days, so far, of 100* or higher.

I recall that around 1980 or so we had 52-54 days in a row of 100*+ temps at the DFW airport. At the time, I had a half-acre place about 2 miles W of the airport that required a lot of water and yardwork!

My Mom said that it snowed in June in the '40s in Rochester, NY - possibly the cold '47 you mention. Rochester also hit 90 degrees one day in January somewhere around '72-'73 (the machine shop I worked for had to call the ice cream guy in for a special visit because we usually got free ice cream when it hit 90 - generally a handful of times in the Summer).

I made a video of one of our snow storms a few years ago, about 15 inches of snow with drifts that got up to several feet in height across our driveway.

The narration as I'm panning the camera up to the roofs, across our gardens and drive was: And THIS, what you are seeing, the mighty drifts, the amazing blanket of snow, THIS, THIS, is ALL due to global warming......

My kids loved it........:-)

Here in the Mkdlands of South Carolina we have only had a handful of days that the temperature has crept above 90. Real sweater weather for us!

No they won’t realize. Their minds are captured. They’re delusional so while records are being broken they’ll claim it’s not that cold and global warming is still the real threat -until their television god tells them otherwise.
