It was 93° today in Albuquerque and we're in a dry period so no humidity.  Bright, blue, sunny skies.

Right now it's 84, feels like temp 91, where I am in S Florida.

My nickname was 'Pure N Simple" but now I've switched to 'decaf'.

Heat and humidity has returned in my state.  Several days will feel like over 100F.  Could last a while.  Hoping it's the last steam bath of the summer.  

 

But not according to the Journal of Geophysical Research.  By 2100, summer could last half the year.

So iin a way, t's not really getting warmer. Just lasting longer.

Hot and humid in SW Michigan as well, with a heat advisory going into effect at noon. Family and friends in Florida often laugh when I tell them that summer here is often just as oppressive as it is there, until they come visit and see for themselves.

 

As for me, I just move my tee times from late afternoon to early morning and take a cart rather than walking.

 

Give it a couple of months and the same people who are complaining about heat will be complaining about the cold.

I'm west of you about 6 hours and our temp the same day was feels like 114. The humidity was in the tropical range. It was like walking into a wall when I went outside.
