I don't know about Canada, but the Eastern US is prone to both dry heat and humid heatwaves.

At 3pm today the air temperature was 10C with a dew point of -4C.. that's pretty dry for here.

Max of 12.3C today and it felt lovely when I was mowing the lawn.

Ha. That's only the case if you define anything with a dew point up to the low 60's to be "dry heat" . Using my own definition of humid as a dew point of 60F or higher, humid heat waves dominates the Eastern U.S. There are some heat waves that are below 60F or even 50F for the dew point, but those are a lot less common.

Yeah, but of course 95-100 F with a dewpoint in the low 60s will feel dryer than similar dewpoints at lower temperatures.

Current Morning Temps:

Look how far down the 30s and 40s came into the U.S.

Drier air came into New England; completely clear overnight so it cooled a lot (low 40s here). There was some interesting valley fog early this morning; a stratus cloud hovering just next to the hills but shorter than the tops of the hills.

I'm surprised it isn't colder than that.. I got down to 29.8F last week accompanied by a hard, white frost.

Well it did reach 71F yesterday and the same temperature is forecast tomorrow afternoon so a temperature that cold would very unlikely with our current weather set up.

We did have upper 20s in the morning a little over a week ago, though, but there was an unusually cold dry NW airflow. Still it's typical to get a mild frost in May, but we have a good chance of not getting one.

I say thats pretty good. HRRR model on right predicting rain line 13 hours out, actual radar on left. Hard to know exact speed but looks like storms slowed down just a bit. Either way, I say thats pretty good since there wasnt rain anywhere close at the time.

Hailstorm in Witney, Oxfordshire today. It's fairly impressive by our standards though I'm sure there's been worse.
