The weather here has been awesome over the last month. Once May was over with all the rain that month brought, and a few mini heat waves with temps in the '90's but were short and lasting a few days, we've segued right into some beautiful summer weather. I can't complain.

I have been tracking several cities, Verona, Mt.Lebanon, and Penn Hills and find it isn't so much the temperature but the humidity that varies. You can create a list favorite cities to track around the world at:

They have everything there from earthquakes to weather maps.

Enjoy!

I think Chicago has 8 now since it was 91 there today. I'm always happy to see the temperature maps on the weather channel showing the temperature in Pittsburgh usually being cooler here than other cities in the Northeast and Midwest. Today's map shows that the high in Pittsburgh was about 3 to 5 degrees cooler than other cities around us.

The only weather disaster that Pittsburgh is susceptible to is floods. Give yourself a decade and a half for a major blizzard, and don't hold your breath waiting for another tornado, let alone a violent one. The probability is too low.
Of which cities you listed gets a 20+ inch blizzzrd every year and which one gets wiped off the map by tornadoes? If referring to Chicago, they had a blizzard this year very similar to the one Pittsburgh had in 2010. Both unusual events. As far as tornadoes, Pittsburgh is less prone to frequent touch down funnels due to the topography. Nothing really out of the ordinary.

Pittsburgh weather obsession goes both ways.

That would probably be the answer. It is amazing how some elevation can help cool a place down a bit. I think we will see people migrate more north as the years get hotter and hotter. Canada is sitting pretty right now.

In my opinion, this weather has been the tits. It makes me so happy to walk outside with the hot sun and fresh air, the higher temps do not bother me at all. I just noticed that I have 6 different pairs of flip flops and only 1 pair of boots. I think I'm telling myself I need to move where this weather is the norm.

Occasionally it has been too warm for my tastes (I'd be happy if it never got over 75), but overall by my standards this has been a very nice summer so far.
