Heads Up: Weird Summer of 09 To Continue!
Don't shoot the messenger, but apparently our weird summer is about to continue. Over ten inches of rain in June and hardly any sun at all. Now, according to the National Weather Service we have another "anomalous" weather pattern about to develop. The Bermuda high, which so far has been unusually far south is building and moving to a more normal Mid-Atlantic position. Very humid, tropical air is about to move into the Northeast. At the same time, an unusually cold pocket of air is settling into the Ohio Valley. New Jersey will be getting a consistent flow of very humid air out of the deep tropics. There is even the hint of a tropical depression or storm looking to perhaps get its act together for later in the week then move up the coast. With or without it, the next week promises to be another soaker. Do any gardeners remember dealing with such a crappy Summer in the past?! Still, it might be a good time to transplant trees and shrubs as you shouldn't have to do any watering. Get out and enjoy the SUN and low humidity today--it won't last long!
