An interesting evening in Chicago yesterday:

 [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]

We had almost ¾" of rain in about half an hour and major winds. Other suburbs and parts of the city faired much worse with tree damage and power outages, some are still out this evening. Currently we are in the high 90s, heat index at 111° F. More of the same tomorrow.

I live in Wheaton, a Chicago suburb about 20 miles Southwest of O’Hare. We didn’t get any rain here yesterday but today was a scorcher. 103F temperature with a 123 heat index. Tomorrow, Wednesday, is supposed to be about the same. Not a lot of fun. Miss being able to walk my dogs—too hot and dangerous for that!

In my post 5 days ago I stated the temperature was 103 with a heat index of 123. Last night it got down to 48 and now a pleasant 83 with low humidity, for Chicago that is, 36%. Later this week back around 100 with high humidity. Can’t blame the Russians or big oil, maybe global warming?😀

Well, it is a different day. They'll "circle back" to the others, or find new ones, when the current malaise has been deemed ineffective at further BS-ing us.

The last few days have been amazing.

80's. Low humidity. NW winds. A few showers.

Picture perfect.

Too bad every summer day cant be like this

Here,in the Republic of Ireland.....



Highest temp in over a century as mercury hits 33C in Dublin

A temperature of 33C was reported from the weather station at Phoenix Park in Dublin at 1pm on Monday, Met Éireann has said.

This is a provisional report but, if confirmed, it will be the highest temperature ever recorded in Ireland in July and breaks the high temperature records for the 21st and 20th century.

The highest temperature ever reported in Ireland was 33.3C at Kilkenny Castle in 1887. Met Éireann said this record stands but some have called in recent years for it be reassessed.

Meanwhile, many Met Éireann weather stations recorded temperatures of over 30C on Monday including in Mullingar, Co Westmeath, Oak Park in Co Carlow and Dunsany in Co Meath.


31.8 degrees.... my Vantage Pro2 plus yesterday

Surprised our GB folks haven't chimed in today about the record heat! Heathrow crushed their all-time record! I believe I heard that only 1% of homes have a/c as well.

"The U.K. Met Office registered a provisional reading of 40.2 degrees Celsius (104.4 degrees Fahrenheit) at Heathrow Airport -- breaking the record set just an hour earlier. Before Tuesday, the highest temperature recorded in Britain was 38.7 C (101.7 F), a record set in 2019."

Also heard some airport was shut down because the runway was melting?
Need some clarification on that.

Shocking! The media sensationalize? Never! All "legitimate" runways are not just determined by length and width, but by weight-bearing capacity as well. I suspect that the concern is heavier a/c may sink slightly into the asphalt (not an issue for concrete runways), causing damage, and repeating the process would only exacerbate the issue, so the surface needs to cool before resuming normal operations. At older asphalt intersections here in town, it is not uncommon to see the surface bulging slightly as car brakes are being applied and pushing the surface upwards. Nothing to do with the witch's demise in The Wizard of Oz.  :roll:

An interesting look at how the rain goes when summertime pop-up thunderstorms develop near overhead and move slowly before dying out. In the Stillwater area on Aug. 9, the rainfall amounts ranged from 0 on the east to 3.13 on the southwest.

Another whiplash couple of days. Saturday we had a tropical heat index of 106°. Sunday rain and storms. A lot of rain came west of us but when it got closer it parted ways and passed north and south of us. This morning’s temp was a low of 57° and this will be the second “Chamber of Commerce” day, mostly clear skies and low humidity.
