Today Is Going to Be Another Scorcher

The weather patterns all over the United States have been a bit crazy this summer. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have had sunshine in in these past couple of months that would rival California's typical weather. Today is to be no different. Nor have we had any rain

At 8 o'clock in the morning, it is already 77F/25C. The high today is to be 90F/32C. This seems to be forecast for the greater Seattle area, here on the Puget Sound. East of the mountains 140 miles (233 km) away in Wenatchee and Yakima, they are expected to top out at 102F/39C.

So far this month, one-third of our days have been in the 90s, one-third in the 80s, and four of the remaining six days well above the average of 75F.

I think it is time for me to get some sunscreen with a 50 SPF. Even in the shade, it is difficult to remain protected from the sun fully.

And I cannot bear the thought of sitting in my townhouse today without air conditioning.

At least you don't have the humidity! :P

Our summer has definitely not been a scorcher so far. It was very cloudy and chilly earlier today but then round about tea time, the sun came out and it warmed up, so I put a wash on, to get the benefit of it line drying during the rest of the evening. Make hay while the sun shines!

Not typically, you are right. I do not miss that, at all, from living in the south.

The humidity has been in the 90 percent range for days. I don't think that's something I will ever get used to. Earlier today a friend in Cape Cod was complaining of the humidity, and I told him until he had experienced Florida in July and August- he couldn't complain about humidity. :P

I have, indeed, experienced that humidity in Florida. And the humidity in Chicago, and other places.....

You take a shower, and cannot dry off because you're still sweating. UGH.

MegL Typically, my area is not much different than yours. This is a definite anomaly!

I still have trouble imagining the Seattle area dry and with temperatures like that for so long. We are expecting highs in the mid90(f)s today with heat indexes over 100(F) and hotter tomorrow.

It's been crazy, DWDavisRSL ... just crazy.

I wish I could send you some rain, it just will not leave us. Enjoy the sunny day

This was from yesterday. Today it's cloudy and to be 70F! YIPPEE!

90 degrees and 90% humidity here, too, yesterday. Then this morning, after I'd waited out the morning "thunder shower" and hit Route 23, it poured.

Ugh. I don't envy you in the least with that humidity, PriscillaKing !
