Hey CC, I'd love to come jump in a pile of colorful leaves!
Nice forecast.

No, not a colourful pile of leaves, but a colourful pile of leaf-slime.

9-out-of-10 (or at least 4-in-5) autumns are so wet, the leaves are never "crispy."
they start decomposing the minute they hit the ground

80 degrees right now, and an expected high of only 85 degrees here today and for most of the week. NICE!

Nice! That's even a forecast that I would enjoy too.

We might get a high of 85 F in a few days, (fingers-crossed)
our first day that warm in maybe 4-5 weeks.

Wow, what's with the sudden cool down in Dallas/Ft. Worth AND in Houston?

It's 80 and feels like 81 and we're heading for a predicted 85, which is our exact average. Dewpoint is 62% and humidity is 53%. We hit 83 yesterday. It looks like we'll high 80s for a couple of coming days.

we're supposed to have the outer bands of Fay move into here later, here's our outlook here:
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will affect primarily the interior portions of Miami-Dade and Broward counties through 430 PM EDT. However...additional shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an outer rain band from Tropical Storm Fay will spread over the area from the Atlantic later this afternoon. Gusty winds...occasional cloud to ground lightning strikes...and torrential downpours can be expected with all activity as it moves westward at speeds around 15 mph.

that's for later this afternoon, I'll keep ya'll updated

Robyn, it looks like your whole state along with several others are in for quite a bit of rain. The weather map looks pretty green down that way. Is the rain welcome? I spoke with my "adopted daughter" this morning in NC. She said it has been just pouring there for hours and the ground was saturated and the ditches were full. NOW there's a threat of more rain if Fay makes it up that way.

Maimiman, I've always been confused about this so I'm just going to ask. Did you used to live in Fla.? Whenever I see your name and then look at your location, I get curious.

DX, definitely keep us updated. They said that the Keys were not having school tomorrow and that TWC was going to start broadcasting from Key West at 7 pm CST.

If it were like this all the time, I'd get used to it. But 3-4 days per year, it feels like walking around in a George Foreman griller.
May 17 - 90
June 28 - 91
June 29 - 92
August 14 - 90
August 15 - 90

Today will be the 6th

It felt to me like there were more than three days of over 90, but I guess they're saying that 90 isn't over 90. It just feels like 120.
