When will this heat STOP?!

<< < (25/26) > >>

My the answer to the thread title is "today, finally!"

Down to the upper 60's this morning and low 70's today.. but it feels even cooler than that after how hot and muggy it's been.

The hot streak of 90's and 100's officially ended last Wednesday in Missoula, but, there's a bonus, which doesn't surprise me. Only a few more days and by next Friday, I'm projecting this to be completely done and over with! We've been hot and dry since about July 7th, which is around 44 days from when the heat wave began. Missoula finally broke out of the hot streak on the 24th of August with mid 80's on Friday, then mid-70's on Saturday and Sunday. That brief rain shower helped end that streak.

Wichita precipitation totals:
5/24/2022 6/1/2022 9 days 8.97 inches of rain
6/28/2022 8/27/2022 61 days 1.14 inches of rain

Wichita high temperatures, from 6/30/2022 through 8/31/2022:
6 days < 90F
36 days 90s F
20 days 100s F
average 95.6F

We still have high temperatures in the 90s predicted through the 9th.

People here don't realize that, in other parts of the country, it isn't normal to have both a sprinkler system and a sump pump...


ETA:    During all of July and August, I only mowed the lawn one time.  And it still isn't tall enough to mow, really.

The days were brutal, nights more so; the thunderstorm outbreaks that whole summer in St. Louis were legendary. That summer culminated with the road trip back to the east coast that introduced me to the weirdness that is Breezewood.

Yes, I've been reminded of 1995 as well.  Though apparently for Philadelphia, August this year was the hottest August on record.

I mow the lawn more frequently, but since July 15 have mowed once every two weeks rather than weekly.  We have a mixed fescue/bermuda lawn with much more tree shade in back than in front, and while the fescue in back has barely needed to be mowed, the bermuda in front really loves the heat and has been going wild.

This has also been a bad year for saplings.

Edit:  Apropos of the topic of this thread, I do not expect daily maximum dewpoints to be consistently below 60 F until the final third of this month.  Last year they crossed this particular threshold on September 21.
