Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

The Pacific North West have been breaking some heat records the last few days, I want to say I saw a reading where we hit 118 degrees, which is an all-time record (And we typically get much hotter mid july-August).

It is down right miserable.

So how hot is it where you live?

I think we are getting the heat that the rest of the country usually gets. I'd take that 83 right now!

81 when I passed a sign about an hour ago. With July a few days away, I'll take it and enjoy it while it lasts.

78 but rainy day. Been hitting mid-90s other times. People are saying that's too hot even for the pool.

It's not like you're a farmer or construction worker. Most people go from an AC'd space to car with AC then to another AC'd space. Who cares?

It was so hot yesterday, I saw a woman wearing a dress that was so see through, you could see her thong and her nipples.

From experience, women who wear something like that usually aren't the kind of women you want to see that clearly.

Yeah, it's been hot for the NW, where almost nobody has AC.

I see more and more neighbors putting in window units.

Tempting, I just can't bring myself to do it. It does seem like it's going to be a long, hot summer though. Fans aren't doing much to cool off the top floor until late evening.

Hard to complain... my main concern is that we have travel plans this summer and if it stays this way, leaving the cats in the house without cooling it off, which presently takes a lot of effort, could be bad. We do have upstairs windows that are safe to leave open, but doesn't seem sufficient without a breeze. I'm experimenting with putting fans on timers, since I also don't feel good leaving them running for days on end.

Wow. What are normal temperatures for summer there? Hard to believe so many people don't have AC.

Re: Holy Heat Wave Batman!, How hot is it where you are?

The heat is too damn hot! We usually have a handful of above-90 days over the course of the summer, usually in July and August, but it generally stays in the upper-70s through mid-80s.

Much of the region seems to be looking at around two weeks of temps 90 and above, which is pretty unprecedented.

Thanks Obama.

90 right now in Central TX. Usually this time of year we're heading into a full month of 100+. Thanks El Niño! Of course there's the abundance of rain we've gotten as well. I think for the year we're at about 40 inches so far - compared to Seattle's which I think is around 15". Been a bit unusual this year.

Hit 104 here today. The good news is we have a major cooldown next week where it should only be in the upper 90's.

I'm not sure how hot it was around noon, but playing basketball during my lunch break was rough.

Normally high 70's to 80's but not humid (Eugene, OR). It seems like it's getting hotter every year. When I was growing up, there would be a few days in the 90's/100s per year--not enough to warrant A/C.

I'm in Palmer, Alaska. 63 and overcast today.

I took a job for a couple weeks in Pendleton, Oregon that starts Thursday. Looks like it was up to 109 earlier this week there--yuck.

There's only about 3 weeks out of the year where it gets above 90 I think, and I've only turned mine on for a few weeks. Usually in July and August, so this is certainly warmer temperatures. But this is normal. About every 10 years or so it's really hot.
