Friday June 28th… Dear Diary. The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉

On Saturday models forecast the nose of the ridge to poke northeast towards Germany while continuing to diminish across France and Spain:
All of this means that the heat wave across most of Europe will continue this weekend while the worst may be over with in France and Spain after Friday. Germany and other more northern and Eastern European countries could see their hottest day on Saturday.
