My neighbor who's been here 40 years here deems it Unusual, another older neighbor deems it very unusual.

Starting 5/1 I start my Summer Sleep Schedule, as I can't stand the heat, I go to bed around 10-11am, get up around 7pm, and I take my ferret for a walk in my 55+ community around 2-3am.

This morning it was so cold I had to put slacks on plus a short jacket and my toes were cold in my sandals. This is my 2nd Spring here in Tucson.

My crazy friend in Arkansas says: Welcome to Global Cooling!

Anyone else find this current weather, besides refreshing, unusual. Of course, if you're a Daytripper, how would you know how cold it gets at 3-4am?

I went out this morning at 6:00 am and my car weather temp said it was 54 degrees. Although I didn't find it all that cold. I do notice it seems windier than it was last year (only been here a year and half).

With a lot of the world shut down, factories not polluting, cars not moving, etc., maybe it's having an effect on climates? It is suppose to be 105 next week though.

Saw on one of my FB memories about five years ago this week it was in the 70's & raining when I went out running. This is the week that if we see one last bit of spring, it's this week.

Though I do remember a day in June that it only hit 85 degrees and it was warmer at my cousin's house in Michigan. So not typical, but not totally out of the question to get 1-2 odd days of cooling in May or June.

What I found more unusual was how we got extreme heat so early in May. I'm glad it didn't last.

In the Netherlands it has not been raining for 3 months... Extremely unusual. Maybe the naysayers wake up...

No.. they don't.

Me too. May can be a bit variable, but we've had more days of 100 plus than usual. And, last I saw, due for more next week.

Ferrets are nocturnal, can't walk them in the daytime. They're also heat sensitive, no sweat glands, and if they overheat they foam at the mouth. There's even some hot summer days that it's too hot to walk them at 3am.

In Las Vegas, many times, I'd walk my ferret on the Las Vegas Strip at night, 3-4-5am, when the crowds had died down.

Looking forward to it warming up, so I can wear my shorts at night, not my slacks, and no light coat.

I get up early to enjoy the cool morning temperatures. This is one advantage in the southwest compared to the warm and humid temperatures in the southeastern US. At least here in Tucson, part of the day can be comfortable or pleasant, even though the afternoon is blazing hot.

Today I went for a 35 mile bike ride between 6 and 9 am, and it was near perfect. It was around 60F/14C when I left the apartment, and less than 80F/27C when I got back home. The other good thing about the early morning hours is the wind is usually calm or light. That helps, because the mesquite and palo verde pollen in April & May give me some allergies (sneezing & itchy eyes). Luckily, those trees have dropped most of their seeds or pollen by now.

The 100's in April were extremely unusual. The average first 100 is mid-late May, and most of June is in the 100's. Last summer was much cooler and drier than usual. We had NO monsoon at all. We had snow at the end of February and it was a cold spring. This year has been all over the place. Much hotter, earlier; much cooler when it should be warmer, but now, it looks like we're getting into a more normal temperature pattern. If you go to weather underground, and to Tucson/calendar you can see every month for years past and see how they compare to this year so far.
