The first storm of the season to effect the eastern seaboard is something Elsa altogether as it soaked the East Coast with an unrelenting weather system that claimed one life in Florida, injured several in Georgia, and flooded sections of New York City streets and subways.

As Elsa keeps powering over the eastern mid-Atlantic region it is expected to move near or over the northeastern United States. No significant change in strength is expected today, and Elsa is forecast to become a post-tropical cyclone.

Scientists point to the deadly Northwest heatwave as the climate change culprit and warn of more extreme heat as commonplace.

As climate change deniers show how dumb they are, the scientific community continues comparing the shocking temperatures in Oregon, Washington state, and British Columbia. Differentiating a forecast in Canada from a forecast in Phoenix is usually a breeze, but not this June.

This heatwave is not just a pain in the neck and every other body part you can identify. A heatwave is a period of excessively hot weather, which may be accompanied by high humidity, especially in oceanic climate countries. While definitions vary, a heatwave is usually measured relative to the usual weather in the area and relative to normal temperatures for the season.
