praying for rain here too...and the humidity has set in too........even though the temps have been in the 90's the past week the low humidity made it tolerable.....now it is intolerable

Sunny and clear, about 76 degrees with a light breeze. It has been a very mild summer in my area so far. We could use rain, but that isn't likely to happen here this time of year.

Most of the day was in the 90s with high humidity; now there are thunderstorms coming our way, so the temp has dropped to 82.

It is DA#$M hot here - about 95 today and super humid. Heat index is probably around 100 or so. We've had intermittent rain showers all day, very steamy here in ol' tropical Kentucky! They are predicting 97 for Wednesday and mid 90s rest of the upcoming week.

Five day forcast here is for highs of 97--99--99--100--100.

Temps in the sun will be 5-10 degrees hotter.

Uncle Bob, our temps are almost as high as yours - I think they forecast 98 on Saturday. If we get sea breezes it won't feel so bad but none yesterday and the heat index was 106. Certainly no weather for being outside unless you are in the pool. The rains we had last week cooled the pool water a bit.

Itís hot. Jungle hot. Tarzan doesnít like it this hot. Going to 98 today, and the National Weather service just issued a Heat Advisory for our area for Wednesday and Thursday. Temps are going to be a few degrees over 100! I wonder if I could stick my cast iron skillet in the bright sun for a few hours and then cook on it?
