I just found out from a few people that the summers are hot here from middle of June to the first of August. Temp are from 85 to 90 in the day and the nights can cool off but some nights it stays warm. This is right?

Note the screamer "Hot, Hot" at the bottom of the graphic. This means "hotter than usual". Normal high at COS airport for today is 82 degrees. Also, 90 in the shade and dry and breezy isn't too uncomfortable. No shade and no breeze is a different story. Hope you aren't a roofer.

The hottest temperature ever recorded in Colorado Springs is 101 so the numbers indicate we're on the hot side of normal.

Yes most nights it cools off into the 50s. A couple of sets of days in late July early August there is a slight monsoonal pattern that will prevent some of the evening heat from moving. No big deal. I live at 7300 feet and I don't need air conditioning.

It always cools off quickly when the sun drops. The thin air does not retain heat. At night, you can count on 55 deg.

I live at 6700 feet, and have just a whole-house fan and 1 room window ac unit. Quite sufficient for me!
