Hot, chance of rain.
How about a Dew Point of 85F. I thought 75F was bad enough, but I don't think I've ever seen dew points that high. That makes a 90F temp feel like 115FHoly crap! It's 92 out! It's so hot you actually need to turn the air conditioning on to be comfortable, if you can imagine that! This is incredible. This is awful. This is unbelievable. It's so mind boggling hot. I think I'm going to melt.
That was actually a set-up line for folks who live somewhere like Arizona or southern Texas to comment "92? yawn that's what the temp is here at 8:00 a.m. most days...."
Yeah, it was pretty unbearable much of last week through Saturday. Sunday morning was a bit cooler but the dew point was still up around 80º. Thankfully, some rain came through in the afternoon and evening and that seems to have made things much more pleasant - unlike the storms that came through on Friday afternoon that only succeeded in making the heat and humidity worse!
That sounds like the opening to a funny anecdote.My AC guy took his family on vacation to Detroit. Their vacation rental, in the Mexicantown neighborhood, does not have air conditioning. Detroit's heat index was 104 on Saturday. Oh the irony.
We are kinda in the same boat. It's only in the upper '80s, with lows in the 60's. However, we are back into 90's starting Monday through the end of the month.False Fall started yesterday; looks like Second Summer will kick in next week. I'll enjoy the rest of this week.
Yet it was cold enough yesterday and this morning that when I happened to get up to use the bathroom around 3:00 a.m. today, I walked past the thermostat and it said it was 61º in the house. If it had fallen one more degree overnight the heat would have kicked on!It's supposed to get up to the mid 80's today and tomorrow. That's quite warm for the last day of September/first day of October. This event probably represents the last gasp of summer.
