    Hot and dry open field climate? They also had the lowest dewpoint I could find of 49F. CEF had a high of 85F but a min dewpoint of 53F. Extra downslope/compressional drying/heating of the air mass? Still seems like a lot of extra degrees from other areas. Pretty sure Bradley has higher plane traffic inbound/outbound all day long tough...no idea how that affects it but jet engines running back and forth all the time might do it. Passenger and shipping operations out of that airport seem to occur pretty steadily all day long.

    It's crazy because HFD looks more UHI than BDL... but HFD's high was 86F and the highest hourly ob was 85F.

    Looking at a satellite view on Google, it doesn't look necessarily like a true UHI.... TAN area looks more developed, TBH. BDL looks to have a lot of fields around it and there's really no development to it's NW where the prevailing wind was coming from. SSE looks like it would be the more developed side. But who knows what the local tarmac is like and where the siting is relative to runways.

    Damn, that's terrifying to think your dog can die after swimming in a pond. Thanks for the heads up. We stick to moving water for the most part, the river out back that runs from Mansfield to town... but most homes in the hills out of the municipal water supply tend to have ponds. Pretty much all construction above 1,000ft seems to have a pond in the front yard for fire reasons...without a pond for the fire department to pump from, you are pretty much out of luck if your house catches fire and it's going to burn to the ground. That would be devastating though to have the dog die from doing something it loves like swimming.

    BOS also maxed at 87F... sneaky high temps, I had no idea the lower elevations in SNE were 85-90F today. Hills and NNE were 70s for highs it looks like. Seems like a more drastic contrast than you'd normally get with CLR skies and deep layer NW flow. Must've been just enough compressional heating off the hills to really bake those SNE lower elevations.

    Honestly, that type of difference is what we typically see up here between BTV at 300ft and the base of Bolton Valley at 2,200ft. It's not like one site was in the clouds or anything... both had CLR obs most of the day with 5-10mph NW breeze. And it's like ORH struggled to hit 78F too looking at the obs, while BDL sat at 89F for a couple hourly obs.

    Some of you SNE guys can riddle me this... How the hell did BDL see 89F today while ORH had a high of 78F? That's twice the dry adiabatic rate and they are only 1,000ft elevation difference? I mean I know you'll have some compressional heating at BDL on downslope NW flow... but an 11-degree difference between those two sites on a deep layer NW flow day?

    The usual cycle... his hype and shtick built-up over time, then there was a little piggy pile about how it was getting old, and ORH posted a good beginner's guide to interpreting DIT's posts.... then he takes a week off or something. He hasn't posted since then anyway. He'll come back when it's 95/72 in full glory later this week I'm sure. He's lurking at times.

    75/53 in the valley with shallow Cu dotted across the landscape. Top 10 day, two days in a row of highs in the mid-70s... gonna pay for it by the weekend.

    It has been enjoyable... ups and downs with periods of deep summer heat/humidity, followed by drier intrusions. Regardless, it’s July so any sunny day is going to be very effective at warming the surface, and keeping it warm. CAA at 850 or even 925mb doesn’t affect the surface like it does in January for sure.

    93.7F indoors?

    High of 77F at MVL today, as men in business suits hike through NNE. A bit too many clouds at the mountain but looked partly sunny out over town and the RT 100 corridor.

    . Same gradient as this past winter. KCDA in Lyndonville, VT at 68F now. Nice autumn afternoon.

    Crazy gradient from you to here... PWS up this way down into the low-70s now...while it’s 85-90F at a lot of SNE sites. Even some mid/upper 60s showing up in NEK of VT and N.NH now for the afternoon.

    Felt cold up at top of the Gondola... 60F with NW 32G41... summer at the base and autumn at the top. 78F down in town.
