So the title of this Washington Post article sums up pretty well how shitty the weather has been in my neck of the woods: San Antonio had 17 days of triple digit heat in June. There’s usually two.


Another quote from the article:
San Antonio has already seen more than a full summer’s worth of 100-degree days. The city has registered 22 such days, 17 in June and 5 in May, the most on record year-to-date by far; 2009, the previous record holder, only had 13 up to this point. The average yearly 100-degree day count in San Antonio is 18, the great majority of which typically occur in July and August.
Ugh and July and August are the typical hot months here.

Another nice graphic illustrating how garbage our weather was this month from our local ABC affiliate in San Antonio. Average high temperatures in June are 90 on June 1st to 93 on June 30th.



There were only six days this month the temperature wasn't at least 6 degrees above average: the 2nd, 3rd, 15th, 28th, 29th, and 30th.

The past 5 days have been beautiful. Low to mid 80's, mostly low humidity with a couple days middling. Mostly sunny for the most part with some spells of clouds.

Overall since the beginning of May has been one of the best stretches of weather I can remember

Week after week of summer sun. Just baking. Going on a month without real rain, except for one day. I put water out for the birds and squirrels - not neighbor's pets, dammit.

Triple digits last few days.

Like the inside of a running nuclear reactor that has been set on fire with napalm and launched intro the molten core of the earth.

So far we don't really have too hot of a summer. Lot of rain too, though I've seen much worse.

Same here... it's been over 90 briefly a couple times but mostly we've been topping out in the mid-80's. (f)

Seems like a lot of our weather in New England this year is coming from the North/Northeast or in other words from the North Atlantic and Eastern Canada keeping our temps down. (cuts down on severe weather too... we've yet to have any really major T-storms this summer)

Still PLENTY of summer left to roast/storm though... hope I don't end up eating my words in mid-August!

Blazing 105°F here in Texas this afternoon. A couple degrees over the record high on this date. I'm working in shorts and no shirt. :sweat:

These would be typical temps out in West Texas. But here is typically mid- to upper-90s.

Over 90 I don't even go outside any more. Used to, but just can't tolerate it now.

So, yeah, after about 9AM, I'm almost always inside and no, most stuff does not get done.

Highest I saw today was 85f and humidity wasn't too bad around 64% so it was actually comfortable outside.

Otherwise a beautiful summer day with clear blue sky and sunshine. :)

Right now about 11am at the beach in Cyprus it's 95 degrees but only 22% humidity so in the shade it's comfortable, and in the sun it's hot but not uncomfortable.

Getting some huge heat here now. 30C feels like 35C. Heat warning in effect. I imagine we're going to get some pretty epic thunderstorms soon. That's typically what happens when it gets this hot.

Just hope there's no winds or broken poles etc, I still have 2 night shifts... I want it to stay quiet. :p

Rainy with occasional thunderstorms temps in the upper 70'sf today.... despite the high humidity it's comfortable.

Tomorrow through Thurs however temps are supposed to hit the mid-90's.

I'm getting fed up with the weatherUnderground site. As you see here, they routinely predict highs over 100, yet when I check our recent daily records, none of the days actually attained triple digits. It's all 97,98,99.
I only have this snapshot from today - so you'll have to take my word for it that previous days here have all been predicted triple-digits and failed to fulfill that prediction.

Wasn't always this way. Why did this forecast shift to being so regularly wrong? Pretty sus. Is this a ploy to make people imagine they're dealing with climate change? People will notice the prophesied temps, but none will actually go check on the recorded high for yesterday, to verify the prophecy.

Watching CNN when there's a winter storm is entertaining. It feels like one of those end of world movies when they show a news segment. Except it's like 2 inches of snow.

Finally got some rain last night & a bit today. It has been really nice the last several weeks. Not too hot or humid & sunny days. We did need the rain though. Might get some more later in the week.
It's supposed to get into the upper 80s the next few days & more humid.

I'm getting fed up with the weatherUnderground site.
I don't usually look at WU anymore but i did just compare with weather.gov & it's showing pretty much the same forecasted temps the next several days.
Maybe because WU gets its readings from a local personal weather station? Not sure how that effects forecasts though.
Try comparing with another source?

I forget exactly who by but WU was bought out awhile back and since then has gone majorly downhill... I haven't bothered to even look at it in a long time since it's just like every other weather-site now.

I mainly just use weather.gov, since all the sites get their data from the government anyway.
