Local meteorologist did an interesting graph for our area.
It showed the average temperatures through todays date for the year ( temps: Jan1~Sep6 averaged)
Four of the five highest have been in the last 13 years.
That's not an opinion.
+I've often wondered If there's some historical measure of seasonal/monthly/weekly atmospheric thermal energy - let's call it degree-hours - that could be compared over time for a given area. Something that could better quantify how hot or cold an area is over time than min/max values that may not tell the story - go under baseline for a period and it's colder than usual, over and it's hotter than usual.
Fingers crossed.And now we're in the midst of that heat wave. 😓 Yuck. I went for a ride a 10 last night and came back soaked. July is back with a vengeance, although it appears it'll be short-lived. We'll be in the 60s and 70s by next week. Hopefully until next year,
+... but what does it feel like? 😁
