    Once you pass 90, it doesn't matter if it's dry or not, it's damn hot.

    On the other end of the spectrum, once it gets below 32, it's damn cold.

    And we are close to the record now...

    Another day of 100-plus degrees as Tucson marches toward record

    I like what the writer observes as one possible cause:

    "Another factor, Guido said, is that "it's getting warmer." Duh!
    It's all Here. Now.

    I seem to remember from my days growing up in the NM desert that we didn't ride til late in the day and into the night, otherwise you'd end up with a dry swamp crotch thing going on. Batwings to the extreme!

    Humidity is just hell... when it is this hot here on my motorbike, it feels exactly like a blast furnace. 115 degrees at 10 mph is Ok, 50, barely, 100, like your skin is baking off.
    It's all Here. Now.

    It's not that hot here, but it's still damned hot ... and the only thing worse than the heat is the humidity once you get under the trees and in the "shade".

    I've been house boating at Lake Mead in that 115-120 degree stuff. If it's dry, it's not as bad as if it's humid. But, the wind sucks regardless. I swear, it's like a hot blow dryer in your face...friggin' miserable!!! Wind makes it worse, IMO.

    I think we are all in for a gnarly hot summer folks.

    That wind will suck the moisture right out of you as well. Tough to stay hydrated between the beer and the wind.

    I grew up riding around in 70's cars. Sticking to vinyl seats blows chunks!

    Dry > Humid by a grand margin.

    Got it.

    But,-weather.jpg

    I'm not actually in Reno for the summer, but I'd rather be. Where I am, we're in the middle of a short heat wave. It's currently ~70-75* @ 76% percent humidity. It's just enough to be uncomfortable, and nobody around here has air conditioning because we have a marine layer nearly year-round. In September and October it's nice for a bit, but the rest of the year is all fog and gloom. I'd rather be in Reno where it's a fifth of the humidity (15%) and where we have a swamp cooler in the house. I like the heat. And seasons. Those are nice too.

    The western States 100 trail run is this weekend. Its a trail run from Lake Tahoe (Squaw Valley) to Auburn via the Western States Trail. 100 miles of rugged, backwoods trails, steep canyons, baby heads, dust and HEAT! Some of the lower canyons will be well over 110*F this weekend.


    I'm surprised Dirty $anchez is crying about the heat already. Sure its a dry heat now. Wait a month until monsoon season hits and its a humid, wet, sticky, swamp a$$ nasty heat. I spent a couple summers in Phoenix. Fawk that.

    Hey, you know what's coming with our ~110 this weekend? a monsoonal flow from the south! - 110 AND humid!!!
    Local meteorologist Mike Krueger estimated a 25% RH which makes it feel like 117

    MOnsoon season is nothing like what you describe! The monsoon moisture is awesome! It cools everything for a while, freshens everything up, but the humidity does not last too long... it's just fine!

    That was not the monsoon seasons I experienced in Phoenix. Phoenix is a dirty, hot, sweaty armpit.

    That doesn't make sense geographically. I've always heard that El Paso, TX is the azzhole of the US and Albuquerque is the nasty, disease infested gunt. So how can Phoenix be the armpit?

    I have to agree with these guys Robert, the only nasty humidity I experienced in PHX was from the Happy Hour Bar misters.... The rains were awesome....

    Now Texas, that's the worst.....

    All this hot heat is just sucking the moisture up from the South... Finally we have some clouds forming and creeping towards us... there's a tang of rain away out there somewhere, this Brit Import can sniff it out!

    But,-photo-2.jpg

    I'll bet Sanchez' new bikes we'll see rainfall some time in the next few days...

    A 90 min. mid morning road ride was enough abuse for me today. Hot dry wind and elevated temps take the fun out of it.

    We just now had a few drops of rain here!!! Very strong winds, and I think most of the rain fried before it got close, but encouraging!!

    Yep, 40* daily temp swings are normal here in the spring and fall and much of summer, the biggest I have seen on my own thermometer was 32* to 82* frost in the morning to a pretty warm afternoon.

    65* here right now, 45* swing forecast for tuesday;

    I've decided that men are obsessed with the weather.

    Yeah, we got a bit in the west valley. Mostly windy though. Still flippen hot, advisories until Thursday. Prevailing winds have shifted to out of the SE, usually means the Monsoon is coming.

    What opposites! You're all giddy when it's going to rain, I'm all giddy when they say it's finally going to stop raining.
