It's about time we've had a weekend like this. No heat and humidity, no crazy thunderstorms. Why can't we get more of this around here?

I know many of us are tired of the sultry heat/humidity this long summer (even me about 10% -lol). However, let us not hoodwink ourselves that summer is over. In the coming days those dew points will be right back up near 70-74 F ….with highs from 85 to 90 F…with a heat index in the middle 90’s.

It’s still early August…and it’s still the East Coast – lol.

you are right there is an 11 year cycle. I remember learning about this in a course I took

NASA/Marshall Solar Physics

Yes I was aware of the sunspot cycle (a lot of complete global warming skeptics talk about this cycle, I personally think the science behind the greenhouse effect is real but heavily exaggerated because weather/climate is a lot more complex (there's also the role of urban development and the "urban heat island" partially contributing to warming)......but I also think the science behind the "sunspot cycle" theory is real too), and I thought that although I've read in a lot of science magazine that we have had some of the weakest years in modern history on sunspots until this year (i.e. the solar flare causing northern lights in northern New England right now, though that's only loosely related to sunspots).

A front looks like it should come thorough today and scour out some of this deep tropical humidity. According to the 12:00 NWS Obs – many stations across the Tri-State area have dew points in the mid/upper 70’s (pure tropical air). By tonight…they should start to fall fast…and by this time on Friday dew points will only be near 60 F or so. It will be fairly warm this weekend (low 80’s) but the humidity will go down starting in the next 12 hours.

I was in line today at a gas station in Branford, and a woman came in and said she just got back from some kind of sabbatical/study in Merida (near Mexican Yucatan on Caribbean Sea)…she said it felt less humid on the Yucatan then in Branford – lol. So I guess that means people on the East Coast are as tough as Mexicans on the Caribbean - lol.

Hang in there, Friday will fell 100% better...Sat night temps will fall under 60 F in a many areas... and dew points will will fall into the upper 50's. Next week should see seasonable temps for August (low/mid 80's) but the humidity will be moderate to low...at least for much of the week.

A F****MEN... I think I know why people jump off bridges now...My mind just isn't thinking straight.... I'm really on edge with this heat Since June. And knowing whats happening in Russia and The West Coast makes me really think about the core of the planet is starting to fry us like a microwave..

The best thing from all this is my garden...Pumpkins are growing in shade. LOL

I once asked myself...would I rather have a garden 10months of the year or use the wood stove 10 months of the year.... ....Hands down....1000%....I'd rather be splitting wood and using it 365days a year. Period.
