They are saying we could have the hottest weather here since 2010 thru the 4th. We will see. I have not turned my a/c on yet this year as every night goes into the 50's. Mid 70's days, 50's night is my perfect weather with no humidity and just a ceiling fan. And rain, by law to only to be able to fall between midnight and 4am. Not in the real world, just my perfect world, lol

Heat index is 108 today in south central Texas with high humidity from the gulf. I hung out a pair jeans I washed this morning, they were dry in no time. We are going into stage 3 water restrictions this week. A/C runs all the time.
Ice tea is tasting good!!!

Pritmuch been July since the last week of May, temp wise.  Couple yrs back, May was still in the 40s.  Sorta get used to not getting used to it. 


Limited exposure, 32yo Toyota air still works, no biggy until the electric bill arrives.

Great here!

I still sleep with my infamous wall heater set to 90F, but I can notice it runs for less than 5 minutes until the thermostat kills it.

I'm kinda homesick lately, so I'm looking forward for temperatures near 115F

By the way, does anybody know if there is a thermostat that goes beyond only 90F or if there is a way to "cheat" the thermostat to keep the furnace running?

The past two weeks I've been dodging rain storms while trying to finish reworking the roof over my deck.  I'm half way done and I go back to work tomorrow night.  It's been SOOOO hot.  Up there with no shade in the blazing sun...I'm glad I work nights in a hospital with air conditioning.  When the sun goes down and I have to come in from the roof  I freeze half to death in the house after being in the hot sun all day.

Temps here are up and down more than a whore working two beds. Hot for a day or two, then cool, then cold, hot again, THis coming week starting Thursday looks to be rather humidly unpleasant, but it's better than gray skies and rain I guess.

Supposed to be mid 90s this weekend with the dew point around 80°, we’re under an excessive heat watch due to the humidity.

Got family coming in for the week so it’s gonna be fun! Finally some real swimming weather!

In a few hours from now, it will be very hot here. The weather reporters are acting dramatic like it will be a disaster when it has happened before and people will cope.

GusHerb, if you go swimming or just in the hot weather will you be wearing a Speedo?

Outside of a few very hot days several weeks ago things have been rather cool in NYC. However Manhattan at least has been rather damp and muggy, which is another matter.

Though hated to do it finally gave in and turned on AC last night. Outdoor temperature was in low 70's or maybe high 60's, but the moisture levels were in 80% rage or higher. Cannot abide that clammy sort of weather.

...but on this day in 2007, the temp reached 129 in Death Valley, a scant 300 miles from me. Pack a lunch, put the kids in the car and let's go have a weenie BBQ needed.

at Scotties Castle? I know it's quite a bit north of Death Valley, but still in the desert. It was closed a few years ago because of severe flooding.

Hot Lanta

sfh074's profile picture
Been fairly hot here (low 90's) but been having gully washers and thunderstorms just about every evening to help cool things off. Lakes are full for once in a long time. Lake Lanier hit full pool which has been awhile seeing that. But Atlanta and the precious mussel fields at the mouth of the Chattahoochee in Alabama will have Lanier sucked dry in less than 6 months and us back on the eternal water restrictions. And I read 91k people moved to Atlanta and suburbs last year alone and the EPA has blocked several years in a row allowing new water reservoirs to be constructed. But so far, very wet year!

to get hotter than all get out this weekend temps in the 90's along with high humidity. Love it.

It's hot here too, forecast was mid 80's and I had 91 in my car today. It doesn't feel that bad today because we don't have a lot of humidity... Yet. That's supposed to come in tomorrow. Saturday's forecast is something like 96 and humid, heat index 105-115. A/C is on and will be for the foreseeable future, 2 of 3 window air conditioners on low and holding most of the house low 70's. Not planning on doing much of anything outside this weekend!

60's and raining hard here now. 80's tomorrow and humidity starts building. Supposed to be in upper 90's and oppressive humidity thru the 4th. Bring it on, maybe I can turn my a/c on for the first time this year. 6 months from now, cold, snow and running heat just to keep warm.

Just went out for Sunday morning stroll.

launderess's profile picture
Got a few doors away and said "scrub this"; and came straight back home to the AC.

It is already 84F with 69% humidity. Shall not be going out again until later this evening. By then hopefully things will have cooled down.

Post# 999018 , Reply# 26   7/1/2018 at 18:56 by liamy1 (-)        

Here too - North West England, UK.

86-90F with almost what feels like no humidity (almost unheard of temperatures for the U.K.) Atlantic makes sure our little island isn’t too warm or dry for too long, especially here in the NW (the wettest region of the U.K., but upside is we have by far the best tap water though on the back of it).

We’re all melting as we’re just not used to the heat and whilst all workplaces and commercial premises have AC, our homes typically do not (again we just don’t get the weather often enough to warrant it - even being different to mainland Europe in terms of typical weather)

For Friday...

Close the double-pleated blinds that cover the double-pane windows, make sure the ice maker is full and don't go anywhere for any reason. 


Now for the 4th, I can see (and hear) a spectacular fireworks display in Palm Desert from my driveway. It was fun when I first moved here but now it's fairly routine. Once we loaded patio chairs in my pickup and had a party at close-range in a church parking lot. Even though my dogs are Springer Spaniels (gun dogs) and not scared by loud noises I still prefer to stick close to home. Don't forget to keep your pups inside.

We had a hot Saturday just above 90, but today the marine layer has returned and it's going to be comfortable for the rest of the week.  Should help with getting the wildfires under control.


July 4th almost consistently brings pleasant weather along with it to most of the S.F. Bay Area, and this year will be no different.

I have seen the sign at the bank around the corner flash temps of 100+ at 10:00 PM or later, of course the humidity was about 0. You are probably surrounded by beautiful green plants and trees, not rocks and cactus. Count your blessings. 


Just kidding of course...

Hot weather may get a break later today-supposed to be thunderstorm durings the 4th.Hope they don't just make the heat wet,though!I mowed my back yard with my cordless electric hand mower-The lawn contractor did the large front and sides with his BobCat ZTR rider mower-he was done in 20Min!Instead of getting a new rider mower-its cheaper just to have a contractor do it.On some occasions he lets me drive the mower!The BobCat mower is kinda fun!This is NOT the same as the BobCat loader-tractors.Its a different company.

hot spell here too

98*here today,Mitsubishi "MrSlim"keeping house cool as the four attic fans blast hot air out:)In a way the Mitsubishi is more effective as weather gets hotter as it dehumidifys better running harder-in more moderate temps,as unit gets close to set point and slows up compressor speed,evap.does not get cold enough to condense off humidity.I sold off two of my spare window ACs to a co-worker:a 1990 Panasonic 12,000 and a 1996"Hampton bay"(WP built)12,000, but gained a 1979 westy and a 1983 westy along with a huge 230v coldspot from 1982 :)
