Looks bad but I would like to experience just once. I'd like to feel the air over 280 feet below sea level.

The hottest I ever experienced was 108 - 112 F near Twenty-nine Palms, CA. To be honest, it was not really that bad. We hiked for 4 hrs, resting and moving at a slow pace. If you move slowly and keep hydrated (don’t drink cool water – only warmish water so you don’t cramp) it can be quite an interesting experience. I remember saying to myself - that this must be what the nomads of the Sahara experience as the wander North Africa. The heat and sun does sap ones energy at the end of the day, however. When you get into a cool room (under 80 F ) you fall into a deep sleep - lol.

In the ultra hot (hottest ever recorded) summer of 2010, the daily average temperature was around 27° C (81° F) with high humidity for a few weeks. Daily highs climbed to 33° C with nights at a humid, suffocating 25° C. I saw the forecast and simply didn't believe it. Since any heat is rare here, there's next to no air conditioning.

It was pure hell. I was at work, sitting on a chair, just pouring sweat all day long. Insomnia got pretty bad as well as it's impossible to sleep in a humid 30° C room. The only respite was in the car where there was AC. It's pointless to invest in a bigger AC unit as the normal daily highs are below 20° C for most of the summer and nights are a cool 6-12° C.

I hadn't liked heat before but that summer really made me a heat hater. I can't imagine living somewhere like Florida where that kind of oppressive heat is common year round.

Oh yes, that heat is horrible. I've tried hydration, and that does absolutely nothing to alleviate my heat stress, but hydration does do a good job of hydration. As for hot weather it's pure misery for me when it gets above 90F, and many times even above 80F, though I prefer dry over humid heat and my tolerances can be pushed up a few degrees with dry vs. humid (a big reason is the suffocation factor; I find it hard to breathe in high-humidity situations). But as for 110F, I wouldn't last long in those conditions. Though I doubt a dry 110F would be lethal to me I would be disabled and at great risk of heat stroke. I'm sure that most people would be able to tolerate it better, and I know my own physiology quite well so don't arm your keyboards in a feeble attempt to deny it .

I've found the real perfect summer forecast for coldies. I think everyone among us can agree this wouldn't be bad for June 19 :

Oh you do disappoint me. You haven't been looking nearly hard enough. Buxton has a colder forecast than what you show there. 65°F? Hasn't been near that since May some time and won't reach that this month at all.

I was picking the best spot, not the coldest spot. If I was seeking out the coldest spot I'd be showing forecasts which make Buxton look balmy .

Buxton is still "better" than that. It will be cloudier than Anchorage and a lot wetter. We have several inches of rain coming this week/weekend.
