    Or just use tenths of degrees for everything like the rest of the world. Enviro Canada even uses tenths for visibility and degree days.

    Sounds like bees are stupid. Wonder if wasps are any smarter.

    Damn and I thought I was doing well with 16 years. I guess technically I have enough to establish record highs and lows, since I think you need a minimum of 15 years for that.

    Still 2.5 months until first frosts and the leaves change color, at least in Connecticut.

    You might be thinking of 2007. Couple of pretty cool nights right down to the shore right before the 4th. I had back to back upper 40s during that stretch, but that was back when you could get a night or two in the 40s in July and August even along the I-95 corridor just away from the water. Places like MVY and TAN radiate well, so lots of examples of 40s in the summer there.

    Looks like BDL also set its record for most 90+ days in July with 18 counting today. Old record was 17 set way back in 2016.

    I suspect it's contamination, some suggest humidity sensors should only be passively ventilated to reduce this problem. Most, if not all, high end sensors use a combination of warming and/or a daily purge to stay in spec at higher humidity levels.

    In what way? I would suspect siting and location changes before the instrumentation. I'm not the biggest fan of using airports as primary climate sites, but they do have weather stations that cost six figures observing 24/7/365, and airports generally don't move like a co-op site might so they've got longevity too. The problem comes when you try to use a particular single site to make your case.

    And the first half of met fall hence the later frosts and freezes. Of the last 20 Septembers, a handful were below normal, and a well below normal month is unheard of now. I guess it's the payback reversal from the late '80s and '90s.

    Ryan updated the graphic for the 5 o'clock news. It now shows 2019 alone in first place at 78.0 which I think he said was the warmest month ever in 114 years of record keeping in the Hartford area.

    If we use GON to verify dews, we should use Bakersville for low temps.

    The climate division averages would be more representative as it includes first order and co-op stations, so it's a good balance between airport and rural observations.

    Even better: just double click the little square and Excel will auto copy down by detecting the end of contiguous rows.

    I'll bet there are lots of (older) buildings in New England without AC. My high school was one of them even though it was built in the '80s. Being just a mile or two from water, when you had a warm late August/early September day, you would just open the windows.

    Only about four weeks left for big heat. BDL averages about 1.5 90+ days post-Aug 21, and heat waves after Aug 21 happen about once every 7-8 years on average.
