I might even have to use my a/c in the one room I have it since there's
so much solar gain. But it was chilly last week !

" Hottest day of the year predicted

People have been flocking to parks and beaches to make the most of the
sun

Some parts of the UK are set for their hottest day of the year so far,
the BBC weather centre has said.

Temperatures are predicted to reach 27C or 28C (80.6F or 82.4F),
according to BBC forecaster Tomasz Schafernaker.

The hottest weather is expected in the West Country, Berkshire and Port
Solent in Hampshire.

On Sunday, the warmest day of the year so far, temperatures hit 26.9C at
Port Solent. London reached 24.9C, Glasgow 24.2C, Castlederg 24.6C and
Rhyl 23.6C.

The warm temperatures are expected to continue across the UK for the
beginning of the week, Mr Schafernaker added.

However, temperatures will be cooler along eastern coasts because of a
breeze.

Cooler weather

"It is going to stay warm and sunny on Monday, with temperatures
expected to reach 27C or perhaps a degree higher, so marginally warmer
than Sunday," he said.

"But changes are already taking place, with cooler air moving into the
north of Scotland.

"This will be the beginning of a cooler spell affecting the whole of the
UK for the second half of the week."

Parts of the Scottish Highlands are expected to reach 19C on Monday and
cooler temperatures and cloudier skies are forecast to reach the south
by Wednesday.

This will mean a temperature drop of seven to 10 degrees Celsius, with
London expected to fall to 19C by Thursday and Friday.

But there will still be "some sunshine" in the later part of the week,
along with "cooler nights".

Next weekend will be "fairly cool and dry" but there are signs that the
warmer weather could return to the south of the UK next week.

But Mr Schafernaker said that the predicted cooler temperatures would
only be the average expected for this time of year, and not particularly
cold."

Now you are silent right?

How would you do it?

Sheeeesh!  It's already that "warm" here and it's just shy of 8AM ;-)

That's one reason I wouldn't like to live there, although lower humidity
might make it more bearable.

Try 30C and 80?% humidity in Mumbai for example.

  Simultaneously?  That would be 30 degree C dewpoint, very rare even in
Georgia.  I have yet to see dewpoint higher than 83 F on the dewpoint map
at weather.com.  I have found that even on most July and August days, no
numbers higher than 79 show up on that map.

http://www.weather.com/maps/maptype/currentweatherusnational /
uscurrentdewpoints_large.html?clip=undefined&region=undefined&collection=
localwxforecast&presname=undefined

  At 6:47 PM 6/2/09, the biggest number on the dewpoint map was 72 F.

  Most of the time I see people claiming combos of temp. and RH both being
that high, it turns out the high RH was from a cooler time of the day,
usually morning.

At 7:00PM it's 88F, but it doesn't feel too bad because the RH is only
42%.  Other than the monsoons for the last month, it's been a nice
spring (have only been running the AC for a week).

At 5:18PM: 99F/7% Humidity/26F Dew Point === NICE ;-)

  Can you cite the nearest weather station to where you experienced this,
so that I can verify 93 degree F dewpoint?  That would be by far the
highest dewpoint I ever heard of in USA and close to world record.

  I think more likely 95% RH in the morning (or some time when
temperature was lower) and 95 F at a hotter time of the day when RH was
much lower.

It was warm (90F) today, but we've been having a string of
thunderstorms for the past couple of hours so the temperature has
dropped to 72F.

   That happens here, too. then the sun comes back out, the temperature
& humidity go straight back up.  The humidity is the worst after a good
rain, and we had just had four days, with over 20 inches of rain at my
house.

   Hurricane season is approaching, and that's when we get the first
heavy rains.  We can get rain like that for weeks at a time.

   A lot of people have no clue what its like in Florida.  Now that
latex paint is all you can get, mold eats it off your house if you don't
bleach it a couple times a year, either with a paint roller, or pressure
washer.

As soon as I reached the age of obstinance I refused to go with my
parents to Florida on vacation.  My reasoning, how could any sane
person consider going from humid WV to humid FL and call it "vacation"
;-)

Only place worse is Savannah ;-)

   You forget that those who live here get to watch all the tourists
suffer from the heat, humidity & bugs.  They drink lots of sugar
sweetened drinks to keep cool, and that just lets the skeeters know
where you are. ;-)
