A great week for clouds in the record heat
The hot muggy weather of last week is seemingly a distant memory as we now all seem to be thriving in the cool cloudy mornings with daytime temperatures not even getting out of the 70's again. I know my dog is certainly happy about that too! The heat last week created an atmosphere which was incredibly unstable over the Cascades. There was virtually nothing in place to cap the air from rising to incredible heights, thus creating daily lines of thunderstorms. And oh how enjoyable it was to be cloud-watching all week from my eastern Puget Sound location in the Cascade foothills!
