Well, we broke the hottest temperature of the year with a high of 98F in Charleston!!! Afterwords, a gust front was scene on radar through here with some nasty popcorn style thunderstorms....Lizemores, a small town about 15 miles south of us, reported 1.75 inch hail!!!

The pic denotes the gust front.

Any final conclusions?

A) It was dang hot this year

B) Although we did not hit 100F, we hit the mid and upper 90s frequently with dew  points in the 70s

c) It was pretty dry during the summer for us

The unusual amount of rain this year has kept the temps lower all summer. The beginning of March we hit that one day and ever since it's been under that. Better than May of last year when we hit 108 (but still didn't complain then). :-P

Is it normally a dry or wet heat? I figured probably wet. Is where u live considered a tropical climate?

98F for us, but we had like 20 days that hit at least 95F :shock:

Yes, it's tropical climate year round. The hotter weather usually precedes our rainy/monsoon season so usually it's a little more of a dry heat. The norm is hotter and dry then rains with cooler temps., then cooler and dry. We're just now getting into the end of the rains and the arrival of cooler temps. (I hope the rains end, enough grass mowing this year :roll:).

Only a few days over 80F at home.  Typical summer for the Puget Sound area.  Hottest (at my station) was 87F mid August, the day we returned from our round-the-country trip.  Hottest temp experienced this year was 111F in Las Vegas, near the end of the trip.

Seeing that made me think that come around March next spring we should post a "What's 'you' coldest Temperature this year" thread. ;)

The warmest temperature this year was 27.4C (81F) on Sept 8th.  That is definitely cooler than normal.  We should have had a few days above 30C in a normal year, especially in July or August.

My station record is 108.2 (2010) and had 108.1 this year. 26 days over 100, 18 last year and no more than 9 in the 3 years prior to that.

113 officially here on August 3rd, my station recorded 115.0 on that date as well for its all time record.

The summer mean for Tulsa was 87.6 degrees...making it the second hottest summer on record, only behind 88.0 degrees posted in 1980.

This was the most brutal summer I can ever remember.  I was 13 in 1980, and don't really remember it very well.  I'm not sad to see it go.

Were the humidity levels as bad as they were in South Dakota in the summer? (In the summertime after the heavy rains there were regular readings of 80F dew points near Pierre) :shock:

It seems that it was a hotter, drier summer in the southwest and up though the Texas panhandle and therabouts, while the Pacific Northwest had a cold spring and a cool-to-average summer, compared to the record temps we have had the last couple of summers.  I wonder how it averages out globally.

It's kind of fun for me to see the reports for high temps this summer from around north America.  We were in so many of those places, and I recorded the daily high and general conditions on each day.  Either from my RVWS if we were on the road, or the nearest WU station if we were stopped.  Joseph mentioned SD.  We spent a couple of days there in late July, and it was comfy for us.  Whatever the humidity, it is drier than the PNW, and MUCH drier (and cooler) than once we reached Ontario and the entire east coast, until we got back to the Albuquerque area.  Then it was just hotter than heck (but a dry heat) until we got home in mid-August.
