Sunny, windy, highs in the low-to-mid-70s. Humidity in the teens-to-20s.

Pike's Peak visible from the bus, Indian Peaks, visible from the office (admittedly, only if I go over into my boss's office but the door between our offices is only ever closed when one of us is on a call, and anyway I'm the only one here so far this morning).

There's tropical circulation out in the Atlantic, luckily it is far enough north to not pose a threat to the Gulf of Mexico (bad luck for the Carolinas, New Jersey, Lawn Gynland, or New England otherwise). However, we did get some rain here in Greater Taintsville as a consequence. It lowered the temperature somewhat so I was able to have a nice comfortable evening to have dinner outside. I grilled a very nice piece of Alaskan cod and drank a nice bottle of 'strylyun plonk (Penfold's Koonunga Hill 2008 Chardonay, in case youse are interested).

I yearn for a mild day. The heat, my blood is too thick for it. I can never explain myself properly....

The rainy season seems to be over and the miday sun is making things very warm - and even warmer large mess tents with inadequate ac or even ventilation for that matter

May 27th was the first 100-degree day here, but it cooled down to the 80s by May 29th. Since then, it's been floating around 97-100. Now the word is it will start cranking up and hit 110 by Saturday.

Kuwait in June is little different than Kuwait in July, a blast furnance about 4 degress cooler than the surface of the sun.

High 80s to Low 90s. Moderate humidity. All in all, typical Mediterranean weather.

You've found one of the few spots hotter than Phoenix. It was only 110 today here.

It's been around 90 and intensely humid around the clock in the bottom of the continental 48, with tropical waves dropping heavy yet short rains at random. I yearn for a big ol' hurricane.

On the Colorado plains, the weather is almost exactly the same almost every day from late June through early September. Hot and sunny with a chance of afternoon thunderstorms.

Then the rest of the year almost anything can happen. It can snow in September or May and be in the 60's or even 70's in January or February. And it can change from one extreme to the other in a day.

This is my first visit to this thread and it's nice to see lunchstealer enjoying his new environs!! I don't get to see much of the high peaks from my office, but I have a permanent nice view of the foothills, including a near view of Table Mountain in Golden and a further view of the Flatirons up by Boulder. (I do see what I think is the Mummy Range a long ways away....)

We have this going on, too. Second day in a row. I refused to go inside last night. Patio, grylled meats, bottle o' wine. Tunes. Lanscaping in bloom. Birds. Sunset. Light a bug candle. Continue until well drunk and dozing.

:) It was great finally getting to meet the Lovely Fyodor, and the Dashing Babushka yesterday!

And the high tomorrow is going to be in the 60s. Our AC has been off for days.

My daughter reported to me last night that at 1950 EDT it was 30C in North Bay, Ontario (that's, like, in the high eighties in American dollars).

At the same time, here in the balmy outer western suburbs of Greater Taintsville, Florida it was about 28C (about 82 in real degrees). On top of that the humidity index raised the apparent temperature by 4 or 5 degrees C - 2 to 3F - while here the increase was about 2C - about 1F).

Dogs and cats living together, ducks and geese in holy matrimony. Where will it go from here?

Actually, back in the last century when I was Project Engineer on the Long Key Bridge in the Fabulous Florida Keys, the Batch Plant foreman got a call in the late spring from his parents in Ucross, Wyoming with the day's high temperature. It was two degrees above the local high in Marathon.

Well, it officially hit 33° C = 91° F, although spot temperatures hit 39° C, which is over 100° F.

Realize that is nothing for some of you south dwellers, but it is a burner here.
