Temps here going to 98 F here today, with a humidity of 85%

Outside will feel like you are wearing a hot, wet blanket. Yesterday was miserable but today will be worse. The air appears to be full of smog, but it is just steam. It is a premature welcome to August in the Deep South. Walking the dog will be a challenge for an old guy.

Heat Index Temperature: 155F (69C or 342K)

Extreme danger: at this condition, heat stroke is imminent.


Air Temperature
98

1. Good luck to you!

We would normally have the same here in the Midwest, but it is unseasonably cool this morning with rain expected today. Looks like we have a decent week ahead here, but I am sure that we will pay for it later on.

2. Here - Twin Cities - finally cooler and low humidity but dangerous smoke

I dont think that Canada is a nice neighbor: Polar Vortex in winter, haze in summer

4. Lovely weather in the Motor City after the mugginess earlier this week....


.... sunny, highs in the high 70s-low 80s, low humidity.

I was in New Orleans a week and a half ago. That humidity ought to be illegal.

7. Almost 100 yesterday but supposed to only be 80s today

Record high temps a couple weeks ago. Finally got an AC for my apartment. A lot of people in the NW dont have AC because historically it doesnt get that hot. But things are different now and I think the change will be permanent.

8. It Was That Hot & Sticky Around St. Louis Yesterday

It's raining now & the temps are supposed to be "comfortable" for the next week.

9. Although the next six weeks will be rough, it was mitigated

by the longest, mildest Spring-like weather we had this year from Feb.- mid June. It all balances out. I am a life-long Southerner from generations of Southerners, you learn to cope. What I could not tolerate would be months Winters, I spent one Winter in Chicago and it was enough for a lifetime.

My wife and I are panning a trip to Anchorage in Jan. that should get us chilled down for a while.

10. 91F & real feel 107 already

If I were you, I'd skip walking in that heat. Quick run out for dog to do business.

We have an excessive heat warning today. Going up to 98. 😔

Stay safe!
