Pouring down rain and 82% humidity

This morning we were going to head down to the local park where there is a huge Christmas in July sale going on - guess it's on to plan B now since I'm sure everything is a wet mess down there .. it's all outside .. those poor people

A gorgeous day with low humidity. It would have been fine without the new AC.

Hope you are staying safe PF with the fires next to you! Take care!!

Woke up to a nice rain at 5 30 am today. It seemed to break this miserably hot week we have had here in SE S.D. It was in the low 80's all day then cooled off nicely tonight. Great night to walk the dog.

Hope this rain is heading your way.

Thanks, SB...the big fire is at 4550 acres now, but it's not headed towards any communities. The smaller one is almost contained. The smoke is still building up and there are wildfires in Idaho that are blowing their smoke our way. Looks like I won't be called this time. Waiting is.

Kylie, technically "0" would be down to freezing. You don't want to know how many below freezing days we get in the northern part of the U.S. I have to admit though that 5c (or 41 F) and rain is miserable. To me that is more miserable than below freezing and snow. At least snow is dry.

You did it! You brought cooler weather! Now please send some south our way, OK?

I have to admit that the sunroom is into the 70s and it's not even midnight! Looks like the coming week will be mostly in the 80s. 80 isn't cool by any means but it sure beats 97, 96, 90-anything.

Instead of taking moisture out of the already very dry air it adds some in while cooling the temperature. I was in AZ with our son a couple of Augusts when he was moving into his housing. The cutest thing I saw out there were misters. Like little sprinklers on tall pipes, they sprayed very fine water droplets into the air while you sat at outdoor dining. Looked silly but worked like a charm. *ah*
That's exactly it CG. Of course they are in their monsoon season now so the swamp coolers are useless! (I didn't know they had monsoon seasons in AZ either.) You really do learn something knew every day!

As for today's weather in Hampshire: Slightly hazy skies, but still hot and sunny with temps around 28/29C (82/84f)
