My guess is my region must be in the corridor of where the Southeast summer "perma-heat" meets the less severe Canadian air. Where systems meet, it usually rains.
This weekend coming up, I think we're all in the frying pan. I'm seeing some scorchers for the Friday through Monday timetable. Very high dewpoints as well, so maybe this will fire off some late afternoon storms that might at least cool things off a tad.
Friday night/Saturday morning, the low is forecast at 80F. Since I've lived here (July of 1995), I don't think we've had more than 5 daily lows 80F or warmer. I think 82F was our worst. And that is MISERABLE WEATHER. You leave for work at 7:00 AM and it's already HOT. Not a hint of coolness.
Congress should make such weather illegal.
