“Hotter than heck in the midAtlantic”

Hottest July (avg day/night temp = 99 degrees) on record (since 1895) in Phoenix.

We here 65 miles north of DeBlasio city had snow on May 9th. This was one of the coldest springs I can remember since at least the early 80’s.

Many flowers and shrubs are still showing the damage from that cold snap.

Most of our springs are on the cool side right up until May now for at least the last 10 to 15 years.

The heat is on from late September at times to at least late April beginning of May some years.

Don't worry, there will still be a report that 2020 was the warmest year on record.

I believe Oslo, Norway, is about the same latitude as Anchorage, Alaska, which is at 61°F about now. No wonder it’s cold!

I was in Phoenix one summer. Hotter than heck. 100+.

I was sitting at a pool reading a paper back book. After a while the pages of the book started to come out. The glue as melting!

Drove one winter with a friend to Phoenix from Chicago. In a little over 24hrs. went from -20 to 80. Heaven.

Hottest July (avg day/night temp = 99 degrees) on record (since 1895) in Phoenix.

Phoenix has urban heat island issues. Heat records there are meaningless, partiicularly nighttime or average of day and night temperatures.

Land use changes and the materials used to build infrastructure were determined to be the most significant factors in determining the magnitude of the Phoenix (and similar cities) UHIE. These materials effectively reduce surface albedo and emissivity, decrease latent heat release by lowering the water permeability of surfaces, and increase the storage heat flux due to greater surface area density and much larger thermal mass offsetting the lower specific heat capacity. Anthropogenic heat release is also a factor, but mainly in dense urban cities....

It was about 116 in Yuma yesterday.

Seemed about right for the end of July...

I drove into Phoenix one night at ~1 am, and it was 103.

Well, if it wasn’t so hot in Florida and Arizona, a good portion of that heat would have flowed into Sweden. It’s the way global warming works.

When it’s cooler, it’s just weather, but when it’s warmer, it’s climate change. Because, Science.

I wish we could import some of that cold air into the U.S. Where I live, we virtually had no winter weather, but of course we have a very hot summer.

In West Central WA, we finally got a day into the mid 80’s about July 23rd or so. Since then it reached 90 twice now. The last three days now we have heavy dew in the AM and heat reaching 78+ or -. To me it is a year without summer, as the rains never let up until July 15th. Of course the news in Seattle, that faraway island of misfit brains, they report a record dry spell. They never think of the heat collection brought on by the asphalt and high rise buildings. HOTTEST DAY in HISTORY at the Sea-Tac airport.
