Well, this brief respite we've had from Summer is coming to an end. The forecast highs this week are all hovering around and above 100 degrees.

It was good while it lasted!

The good news is that we're on the downhill side of Summer, with Autumn coming up (my favorite season). And, with the relatively mild Summer we've had thus far, I think September will be relatively mild because not as much heat was built up in the earlier Summer months.

Real nice

It was nice, but we knew it couldn't last until fall! Now we'll pay for it with higher humdity and the shock of 100 degrees all over again.

Yeah. Lots of rain here. But, the HEAT is back. I see where we are almost the hottest place in Texas now with the exception of Brownsville. San Antoniono, which has had very little rain over the last six months is even cooler than us this week. I think much of it has to do with the massive population, concrete, and heat island effect here in DFW.

I take that back.... Brownsville is COOLER than we are. DFW is the hottest part of Texas now. Imagine how hot it would have been here had we not received all of that rain. Dry ground heats up much faster than wet ground.

That's right, but the moisture cooking out of the ground will make it more humid, so it will feel hotter.

I'll bet it's hotter in Big Bend National Park than it is in DFW!
