God-emperor of Alanland, king of all the goats and goat-like creatures

70 with godawful haze from several fires in Western Montana. Feels like fall, but the AQI (air quality index) is 170 for Unhealthy in the Missoula valley.
Finally upgraded to Expressway after, what, seven or so years on this forum? Took a dadgum while, but, I made it!

I wish we used that word more. The only place I've ever seen it used is...Winnie the Pooh.

Upper 60s, a bit humid. Expecting a good amount of rain today.

That weather sounds amazing!

I always associate the word 'blustery' with wet weather, either rain or snow.  For some reason, in my mind at least, the word doesn't fit with fair weather conditions.

I use it if winds are going to gust up to 30 mph, similar to breezy in my mind. But I def use it more when things are more unsettled with rain/snow.
The local weatherman, trust me I can be 99.9% right!

You don't need to post every single day (you've done 12 in a row), especially with typical weather. Most of the posts here are about extreme highs, extreme lows, returns to normal after these extreme temperatures, or rain/storms/tornadoes. My posting recently has been a bit different, usually about drought or weather patterns over time (e.g. comparing webny99's weather with mine with a one-day offset), but it's still not "76 and sunny"-style.

I agree with this, but note the official moderator position that (paraphrasing) it's OK to post frequently, since it is answering the question asked.

Also, it's less egregious to post frequent updates when others are participating in the thread. If you're the only one that has posted to the thread for three or more days in a row, I think it's fair to conclude that another update could be saved for later, or if/when something out of the ordinary occurs.

7/8

I can tell fall is starting since the lows are getting much cooler. Today is a comfortable high of 19C/66F and partly cloudy, but the low will drop to a cool 9C/48F. That's nice for opening the window before bed to cool down the room. It looks like tomorrow and the weekend will be more summer-like weather with highs around 27-28C / 81-82 F, maybe the last-such weekend of the year? (we'll see).

Summer is being stubbornly persistent around here, and will remain so for the next week. Sunny and mid-90s for me for most of next week.

Same here.  We had a couple of nice days a week ago, but it's back to being hot again.  Tomorrow's forecast high, in fact, is 100°F.  The mornings do seem to be just a bit cooler, though.  Some days, I'm able to leave the front door propped open at the office for the first couple of hours.

The shorter daylight hours do work wonders for confining the heat to a shorter time period and making it more bearable.

After a cool, sunny day yesterday, it will be much weather again today.

Sunny with clear skies, mid-70s. Perfect summer weather.

But I'm really ready for some fall rain.

Remote cameras are showing the season's first dusting of snow on the higher peaks around Lake Tahoe this morning.  The autumnal equinox +/- a couple of days, that's right about on the usual schedule.
