What's up with the mid 80's-2000? Did the ASOS just have a broken sensor for a decade and a half?

I don’t think the manned observer reported dewpoint. I’d have to look back at old obs, but based on everything being near 32F I assume most obs came in with a missing dew and the plotter is seeing it as 0C aka 32F.

We will judge based on hours of 70+ dews. I don’t like the avg ones for this because periods of COC decades ago brought down the means. A month of dews in the 60s ranks very high, but isn’t necessarily too impressive because of no COC.

90

For me it’s been a dream. Maximized dews for weeks with none below 60 since sometime in June . And that looks to continue unabated 

What day did you hit 90?

Is there a day that BDL hit 95+?  I’d assume it takes at least that high to get near 90F under the trees at 1,000ft.

Their max so far is 94 on 6/22 and 7/10

That’s actually impressive thats *only* the maxes, ha.  But yeah hasn’t had the high heat down there that we have had up north. 

Even today, BDL hit 90F, Tolland Stem lower than Kev and more wide open only did 85F.... Under the oak trees was probably like 82-83F.  Summer time is probably like -7 on the BDL temp but +7 on the BDL dew there.

Do you have a link for hours of 70+ dews? I'm on the shoreline and it's been endless 70+ dews here.

Yeah it’s def been warm and well above average. We’ve been doing it a lot more with the low temps though. We haven’t had those scorching highs yet that NNE has seen several times. I don’t think you’ve even hit 90 yet. 

Kind of hard to when the dpoints are so high  850 m bar temperatures 17+° now seems like for the past 10 days ...on a west wind in a dry adiabat we should probably be 94°

Anti-gravity propulsion.  It's real and people are finally witnessing it.

We need that Sanoran heat release/sourcing like the Euto’s been advertising in the xtensed to actually get into the short range ...just seems to be a permanent fixture out there in the extended but it never seems to mature or last rather crossing into the 84, 96 or even day 5 range

Probably flips around in late November and we have a permanent apocalyptic blizzard bomb that never comes either

I am unconvinced that this will come within a furlong of 2018 in the dews department. That was a freak show.

I have been lurking in this forum for a few days in preparation for our annual trip to Edgartown.  You all are obsessed with dew points!! It felt like a Northern VA October day today on MV, an absolute 10 of a day today at the beach.  How are we looking on MV for the rest of the week?

Didn’t we have a year circa 2012, that was brutal dews beginning in June

Consistency too in the flow. I mentioned further back we haven’t had those classic 58F turds mixed in with onshore flow like we seem to get every June...so usually when we have a +3 June, we’re saying “oh man, there must have been a few 96s in there!!” since we know there were probably a couple 57F onshore flow episodes mixed in. 

But this year, it’s like just consistent above average but not the “scorcher” days mixed in.

Can't possibly. I do hard physical labor outside everyday and I haven't experienced one day close to that s*** show. It would have to be miserable from now until October.

Yeah see we had more of a real see-saw in temperatures.  

June was only (compared to SNE) +1.7 here at MVL despite having 5 days of >90F maxes... destroying climo in that regard.  We did have 2 days of maxes in the 50s as well, along with some 60-65F.   In fact, MPV/Montpelier has June at exactly 0.0 departure despite the hot periods.

It was warmer in the means but we still had periods of -10 and -12 departures to go with +12 departures.  

Back in June, a day of 91/48 was a really hot afternoon but only a +7 departure at the time.  Get the high end max temp but the minimum temps and high diurnal spread kept it from getting out of hand in the positive direction back when sites were pulling 35-45 spreads.

18z GFS finally gets the 588 N of our latitude over a convincing period ... Many cycles since it’s done that ...

Every day this month has been AN, making it 24 of the last 26 with the big rains of June 29-30 the only BN days in that stretch.  July is running +3, with highs +0.6 and lows +5.5 - all warm but no big heat, max is 82 so far and only 28° total range for the month.  June was just the opposite, ranging from 27 to 90, the greatest span for any met summer month here, 1998 on.  Garden loves this July so far, more than adequate rain, warm days and mild nights with no blazing heat that sends the greens to seed.

I saw that a place in Colorado achieved a daily record low temp and daily record high temp on the same day July 10

It also happened 3 times at that location back in August 2002.
