I know , This may go nowhere. I have local news stations from all over the country on my favorites list.
There is ALWAYS something interesting going on.
Here in east central WI. Hot air , moderate humidity. I have 89 on the back porch. Windy.
We have had some severe storms north of us in recent weeks.

Widely scattered darkness is predicted here for tonight, otherwise it's a rather pleasant afternoon.

solar winds, and the moon gets just as hot as it gets freezing when the sun shines on it because it has no atmosphere to protect it.

It's sunny and 78 degrees at 5pm. Best summer in 22 years in Virginia.
We have had way more rain that we need, ruined plants and flowers, but take rain over drought any day. Best thing is that we haven't had more than a few days over 90 and very little humidity except last couple of weeks. Just wonderful.

Something kind of odd occurred here in Florida this summer. I thought maybe it was just me, but I did some Googling & found a forum where some other people were talking about it. Haven't heard anything out of the local weather idiots, though.

Anyway, even though the daytime temps have been right around where they usually are in the low to mid 90's, the humidity seems to have been a little bit lower.

But what is so striking is, up until about a week or so ago, how low it's been at night.

Normally by early to mid July, & much earlier even, when you step outside early in the morning just as the sun is coming over the horizon, the first thing you're hit with is the humidity & the complete lack of any breeze whatsoever. And that just serves to magnify the heat from the sun, so that by 7:45 - 8 am, it already feels stiflingly muggy & hot. Walk from your door to your car & you're already dripping sweat.

And even at night there is almost no breeze whatsoever. At least not 50 miles inland where I live. Over on the coast there's usually a light night time breeze, but often, it's not much to speak of either.

Anyway, the strange thing is that this year all thru June, July & into August, I would go out in my back yard early in the morning, only to be pleasantly surprised to find it dry, cool & breezy. Almost "chilly" a couple of times.

Recently, around the 12th of August, during the Perseid meteor shower, I sat out in my backyard from around midnight till around 2:30 am watching it. It felt amazing!!! Cool, dry & breezy with very low humidity. I didn't want to go inside!!! And more than one night this summer, I turned off all the fans before going to sleep. Once or twice, I got up in the middle of the night to turn the one I had blowing on me, off because I got so chilly it woke me up.

My electric bill has been noticeably lower the past couple of months too, because I haven't been running my larger, more powerful "commercial grade" fan in the back window that usually runs most of the day.

I sure as hell hope this marks the beginning of a nice long trend.

If every summer was like this one has been, I wouldn't dread them every year.

^  Really!  From May into October---nothing but warmth and sunshine and daffodils and hummingbirds and children frolicking about.  And then there's those damned pools---all clear and warmed up to around 80 degrees---not to mention the fact that, most of the time, you can have your doors and windows wide open to let in those gentle spring and summer breezes.  And don't forget those convertibles with their tops down, and the teenage girls with their own tops so skimpy that they might as well be down, too.
 
It's horrible, I tell ya.

Well, don't complain.

All that horribleness is compensated for by those 110 degree days & the wild fires & of course the long, wet dreary winters.

So really, it's not so bad there after all!!!

Down here, we're looking at a good 8 months of those nasty clear skies, warm sun & low humidity.

And girls in skimpy tops.

You only have to put up with it for 4 or 5 months.

Strange.

I just posted about the same kind of thing down here in Fla.

The nights have been very comfortable.

Unusually so.

Yeah, right now there're something like 50 wildfires going on.  One of 'em, about 150 miles from San Francisco, is threatening to knock the electricity out in SF if they don't get it contained.
 
But I thought Florida had a lotta high humidity.

Jimbo seems to think you have long dreary wet winters. My 92 y/o Aunt lives in Chico. I have visited her in February and it was mid 70s and sunny. I think Sacramento is similar. Maybe he is confusing us since you are my Brother from a different Mother. The Willamette valley in Oregon can suffer long dreary wet winters but frequently has cold and super clear days in January and February.

I noticed similar things a couple weeks ago.  It felt like autumn weather.  A gardener friend even mentioned that some of the trees were changing already.  I'm starting to think the calendars are off.... Wink

Normally it does from around June thru September.

This year was the oddest summer I've ever seen here.

Low humidity at night & breezier than usual, even during the day.

The past week or so has been a bit more like normal summer weather, though.

Right now it's not that bad though because it was overcast all day & rained a little.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who noticed it.

It was like that back in July, too.

Went outside around 7:30 - 7:45 am & it felt great!!!

Hope it's like this again next summer!!!

And a few more, too.
