    We are at a balmy 57 right now with a forecast of low 70s for the weekend.

    I'd estimate mid to upper 80s in the Crescenta Valley today. I felt it while climbing this afternoon, pretty warm.

    It was 109 in Furnace Creek today and it's supposed to be 118 later in the week.

    High of 51 yesterday. Had a little frost on the grass this morning. Today is supposed to get to around 60 and it is supposed to be like that all weekend.

    I tell you, this chilly weather makes for nicer all-around living, but makes getting out and riding tough.

    very true.

    My wife is in Indiana where it's been unseasonably warm for the past few weeks...in the low 90's here and there and well into the 80's the rest of the time. It's been the same in E. TX for much longer than that with only a couple short respites (like today), and I think it feels good. LOL. She's been complaining about the heat and I've been talking about how I've been trying to ride more lately to take advantage of the temps before it breaks 100.

    It was 107 at 6pm tonight, 42 minutes ago. Closer to 111 I'm guessing at 3pm. Relative humidity of 4% so it's really not bad unless you are riding your bike in the sun.

    Guess they don't call it The Valley of the Sun for nothing.

    110 isn't too bad...122 in late June (1990 IIRC) kinda feels like this....only hotter.

    June 26, 1990. They closed the airport that day. I lived in the Valley back then. Ran a jackhammer in downtown Phx. all day, almost fell out in the heat. Almost everyone that lived in the Phx. area then can tell you what they were doing or where they were at that day.

    I just noticed OP's thermometer was in a car. I think if I were to leave a thermometer in my truck it might explode. Maybe I'll do that today, even though it's only supposed to be 113 today in the shade

    Yeah, some airports close due to snow, Sky Harbor closed due to the heat. IIRC it closed b/c some of the planes' specs did not cover takeoff/landing above 120 degrees. Crazy

    Where I rode yesterday I estimate it was 95F in the unshaded spots. Was a rather uncomfortable ride:

    BITD, I rode year round in Phoenix so probably the hottest was 114/115 f. Can't do that anymore, 95 f. is my limit nowadays.

    Yes it was in the truck, but all 4 doors were open for a half an hour with gusty winds and there was a sunshade on the windshield ... it was still ****** hot out there and did I mention the humidity. Got to love riding in a swamp.

    it is a balmy 61 degrees right now with partly cloudly skies. If I could find somewhere to live that was like this better than 75% of the time I would go there and stay forever. This is perfect.

    funny, when i was stationed at pendelton back in the day, i dont recall SD being nearly that temperate- i recall it being 80s and 90s regularly. i remember they were doing one of the first x-games, maybe the first, on a beach where they were making snow for some snowboarding or something... and the shaved ice machine or whatever it was they were using to make snow, was creating a rainstorm on the beach instead of snow. too hot for me.

    You're probably right. I've never lived there but every time I've been there it's been a seemingly perfect 72 degrees and just sunny enough. I'm from Phoenix so 80 degrees or so is just about perfect for me. Any cooler than summer time San Diego weather and I'm actually 'cold'.

    EDIT: looks like you are talking about a hot spell. Historical weather data shows a range of
    (max high avg. ) 64 degrees in Jan, to (max high avg.) 76 degrees in August. Sounds perfect to me.

    What's really interesting is despite being an ocean town SD only get 2.2 more inches of rain (10.14) per year than Phoenix (7.95). For such a humid town it sure is dry.

    Hottest ridden in:

    35 C with 80% humidity.

    Give me 16-18 C with <30% anytime.
    I run HOT so cooler temps are better fer me.

    ...and high humidity is worse than hot, at least when hot your skin can still dry in a breeze...
