Do your family prefer the extremely hot and dry summer months, or the slightly cooler (albeit still hot), very wet and humid monsoon season?



They say they prefer the hot and dry days, because during the rainy season the dewpoints regularly get above 80F (27c) which is extremely humid and oppressive. I'm not sure I would agree with them; I'd need to experience both seasons myself.



In Ahmedabad, one October day reached a temp of 102F (39c) with a dew point of 91F (33c), so the heat index was around 140F (60c). It is a truly horrendous climate in every aspect, not just in its ability to reach 50c.

Take it from me, I've experienced 119°F with dews around 32°F here, and 97°F with a 79°F dew in Little Rock, Arkansas; and I'll take the dry 119°F over the super humid 97°F

^I hate 70+ dews too, so that's probably one of the (very) few things we can agree on weatherwise.

It is crazy that humans actually live in a place like that (especially if there is no A/C).

Second half of summer could be very warm here if this becomes the ENSO set up and La Nina gets underway

Yeah well summer is basically down the drain here. The CFSv2 has been erasing warm anomalies more and more each day. A month ago or so the model showed warmer temps for eastern europe and cooler for the west for once, but now it has reversed again as if western europe hasn't had enough scorchers year after year.....

Whats worse, people on a local Estonian weather blog have been predicting a record cold summer since January.
They base that on some old folk tales like "Winter has to come, if it doesn't snow in January, it has to be cold later" or some dude has a theory the annual mean temp has to be exactly the same every year, and now we need a cold summer to counteract the insanely blowtorch winter we had. Obviously back in January I though it was bulls***, but now it really seems to be going the way they predicted....
