Hahaha funny you mention that.. I can see it but not hear it yet, and was thinking I haven't  heard the term heat lightning in awhile from anyone..

My hand automatically rises for a smack when I hear it

Today was hotter than anything we had last summer. 

Depends where you are.  HI were higher this year, but not temp. Same as last year early July

Screenporch, fan, fireflies, and Perfect Storms tonight.  Caught a nice outflow breeze from a cell just to my north.  For my money last July 1 was way worse... Today felt quite pleasant on the whole.

Also, the veggies are going off like fireworks.  Get your tomatoes, corn, summeh squashes, chard, kale, red onions, early garlic, new potatoes, blueberries, raspberries, etc, etc.  BLTs simply cannot be beat this time of year.

Yup.  Again, it depends on where you are. I have to go back and look but I think last years highest temps in a lot of SNE were either as hot or hotter than today

I’m sorry....MFA?  Also high dews aside I always chuckle a little bit when people here get excited to reach 100.....I don’t say much cuz I get it but out in the Wild Wild West 100 is easily achievable several times per season....ya ya I get that it may be tougher here with the higher dews so ya there’s merit there.....honestly reaching 100 here is like downright fukin awful....lol....at least out west after hitting 106 you get to cool down to 68 with the lower dews....will never get acclimated to high dews....my body can’t do it....I’m an AC whore lol

A friend of mine who grew up in Eastern MA but now resides in Cali was visiting her parents this week. She was so shocked by the dews. She couldn’t recall it being like this 15 years+ ago.       I reminded her of 1988.  Nothing new.

I still haven't picked a tomato yet. Latest I can ever remember down here 

We haven’t picked them yet, still small and green but huge abundance.

I haven’t picked any yet here, But I’m later then down your way but gardens are late this year in general for those that plant in ground because of a wet spring.

She got used to the fresh feel of 102/55.....it’s so amazing it cleanses all of the awful memories of days and days of banana hammocks and the drip.....it’s so awful you just have to wipe that from your memory.....

What a torch zone the Champlain Valley is... low to mid 80s still. 

Once into the hills east of the Spine, it cools off pretty decently... low 70s here along the valley waterways in the interior.

83.0° F high today, which is my max so far this year. The big story with this airmass is the dews, just awful! Topped out at 77° F on my Davis. :angry:

Down to 66.8° F after 0.10" of rain from convection, so no > 70° F minimum today despite having a "low" of 71.5° F last night.
