Lows in the Merrimack Valley this summer have generally stayed in the 50s or cooler. It was very humid for much last month though, but with below average highs.

I've got some big, warm film lights in my apt right now, and I can go buy some sand. My place around seven?

It's been cooler and much rainier than usual here in the mountain west. the open areas are still green. Usually, by the 4th of July,they're brown.

There was so much rain in June on Long Island that our neighboring building didn't even open the pool until JULY. Usually they do it on Memorial Day weekend. So depressing. There have been some cool tropical storms though, and ... a tornado touched down in Yonkers last week! Very curious weather patterns indeed.

For example, New York City's avg. July high temperature is 84, and today was 72!
Boston's avg. July high temperature is 80, and today was 64!


Last year, it was much warmer than this year. Even this year's winter was colder and snowier than usual.

It's doing the same here in the Indianapolis,Indiana area. We have only got around 17 days of 80 or higher this summer. In the first week of June we still had nighttime lows approaching the freezing mark. Historically a cool summer is usually the sign of a bad winter.

Shouldn't you be dodging scorpions and black widows or something?

Now you know how it feels in Ireland! Our average summer day would be 70 degrees, cloudy, drizzle. Sometimes it gets to 75-80 on like 3 days if we're lucky!

I've heard Manhattan can be brutal in summer, is this not a good thing for some people? I also know relatives in D.C. and they say there has to be experienced in a hot summer. 100-110 with mad humidity.

The weather is absolutely spectacular now! Highs will be in the 70s every day this week with low humidity. This is why I love summers in the north. You have a moderate intensity sun angle, lush greenery everywhere, and the lakes beckon...

For the most part, the weather has been great here in NE Ohio. It has been cooler than normal, but not unusually cool. (highs in the mid to upper 70's, lows in the mid to upper 50's) It has also been dryer than usual, but not overly dry. (everything is still green) I don't know if it's affecting our farmers, though.

We're about 30 mi. NW of DC, and just south of the PA state line.

It's been a GREAT summer so far, 70's and 80's, and pretty low humidity. None of that awful, hot & humid wx we'd been having so much of over the past decade.

For the record, last summer wasn't too bad either, except for a short heat wave in mid-June.
