    I gotta give credit where due to @Damage In Tolland... I figured ORH would pull up short in the upper 70s this weekend but they are at 81F for their 2nd consecutive day of 80F or more. I think DIT had two days of 80F or more at ORH, so credit acknowledged. What a torch today down SE of the mountains from coastal ME/NH into SNE.

    Yeah looks like we had 1 day of +12 in July (the only double digit positive of the summer) and yesterday was +12. The difference though is that the July day was our only 90+ at 91/69... a +12 now delivers 82/52. Sensibly and in terms of comfort, there's a big difference between a 91/69 and a 82/52, ha. +12 right now is Chamber Weather in summer.

    These are likely bigger departures from normal than anything we saw all summer. My MET summer came in just a shade below normal for JJA. The hot humping didn't seem warranted for three months straight IMO .

    Haven’t had time to post but those 3-4am temps in NNE have to be like +30 from normal for that time of day. It was 64F here at midnight and then 74F by 3am when the strong low level jet started mixing out the inversion. Those 3-6am temperatures were like +5 to +10 above the normal MAX temps, much less at the coldest part of the climo day...

    The humidity is definitely there. Local PWS are 68-72 right now and the temp feels fine as it drops into the 60s. But dews are 64-66 on those stations too. AC would dry it out but the outdoor temp will be similar as inside very soon.

    Agree with you there...this time of day is the most uncomfortable and I could probably run the AC for a couple/few hours. Even with dews in the 60s though the outside temp will hit my AC setting (67F usually) by 9pm....and I struggle to pay for AC when the outside temp is the same or lower, ha. This will definitely be a summer evening though, even up here we won’t get our quick 15-20F drop of the past couple nights.

    Torch pattern and comfortable starts to get blended this time of year though. I agree whole heartedly it’s a torch, but is it uncomfortable? I bet anyone who hit 85+ though feels it’s uncomfortable, as opposed to posters seeing 70s to low 80s who probably won’t have to run A/C. Torch though is empirically clad. Can’t deny the departures. Subjective differences aside as to what is comfy and what isn’t.

    We are up to 82F... the 2nd day to hit 80 or higher so far in September. Todays 82F is the warmest temperature of the month so far. I just looked up last September... holy crap. We had 10 days of 80+ compared to now 2 this year. And highest last year was 89F. Now that’s a torch. Makes this look like child’s play compared to last September’s month long torch. -2.0 as of midnight for departures this month, compared to +3.0 last September.

    Ha I wasn’t sure. I definitely lean colder but it’s a product of environment. 78-82F up here is beautiful but yeah it’s like +15 on the high if it makes low 80s.

    We are trying to survive. Chamber of Commerce, full sun and a breeze. 78F in town and 75F up here at the ski resort base. Staying hydrated. What a weekend.

    True, it's probably really enjoyable to be sitting out on Church Street this evening. Good call.

    59F now while BTV is 71F... poor folks just bake there in the evening. Absolutely no rad cooling.

    Some shots in mid-day sunshine today. A nice cloudy, dreary day would probably make this color pop. I'd say we are at moderate color. I bet peak is around the first weekend of October...pretty much when it always is on the mountain.

    Quick 15 degree temp drop again with the sunset... that's the big difference from summer, how fast it cools off between 5-7pm. In mid-summer its still full sunshine right now at 7:30pm and now it's dark outside. 63F, warm enough to keep the windows and sliding doors open but also a sign of the times at how quickly it can cool off.
