Greetings everyone! I hope this week’s post finds all of you doing well. The tropical Atlantic is much more active and the potential for a landfalling tropical cyclone is certainly a possibility. Consequently, I’ll continue to share helpful infographics on preparing an emergency kit that will be helpful in any tropical storm or hurricane scenario. As usual, there are many other essential and important reads to review on climate, weather, and other science related topics, so let’s get started.

- A uncomfortable and potentially lethal new normal is coming to fruition. The summers we are having now may be the coolest we have for the rest of our lives.
- Much of California has taken a beating in recent weeks with drought, record heat, wildfires, and the potential for flooding taking place.
- Here’s a look at the latest US Drought Monitor. Across the western half of the contiguous USA, drought conditions continue to persist and worsen by the day.
