A hurricane is approaching Bermuda. Is predicted to affect every state on the US east coast.

That large herd of cruise ships, once hanging out in oceans surrounded by Bermuda's islands, is on the move. That herd is clearly moving in mass down the Florida coast and around the Florida keys.

Two potential hurricanes are following in Isaias's wetsteps.

Had a really nice few days for August in KY.

Low eighties, low humidity. High today was 77.

We aren't getting any global warming at the coast. To find the summer, you need to drive inland.

Its fairly certain that a next hurricane will be somewhere off the NA coast in the next five days. It has not yet reached the western Atlantic side and a will probably be a topical storm by tomorrow. Nine storms by a first week of August - may be or approaching a record. This would be storm ten.

That ain't good. Our overnights have been going to the 50s of late. That is pleasing to me.

Last night was quite warm in SoCal -- room temp at dawn. Still air, humidity here at the coast, distinctly hot and dry inland apart from scattered thunderstorms -- those are unseasonable, and there's not enough of them to rain on the brush fires. Today's and tomorrow's forecast is more heat, and plenty of it.

We'd best not overcommit to our vaunted clean-energy generation, though: the entire state is on notice of Flex-Alert from midafternoon to 9pm Pacific, as we have less environment-independent generation than we used to. Solar generation begins to drop about 3:30 and steadily worsens as the sun sets. Wind basically shuts off for the sunset hours. Early afternoon is of course the highest temperature and the greatest load on the multi-state grid -- mix that with slumping generation and you've the recipe for mismanagement and rolling blackouts from here to New Mexico.

Completely normal headline for societies to have: California severely short on firefighting crews after COVID-19 lockdown at prison camps.

The prisoners upon whose exploitation California's fire safety plans depend are too sick to leave their "conservation camps" (they honestly call them that) to participate in forced labor.
