Horrible timing for our A/C to decide to start dying a slow death. 

$600 in coolant last week and still don't know if the leak was repaired. :axe:  Might pack up and head down to see the boy at Grace and LSD for a few days.

Ouch. We are looking at a few thousand in repairs, but the previous owners didn’t disclose a known issue so we might be getting a new system paid for by them. 
 

Staying on topic, high of 97 here today.

Does the HRRR have a cold bias in summertime? The 23z run is showing temps in the upper 80s right now, while we sit at 97.

It definitely tends to be too quick to cool temps after peak heating, especially in more urban areas.  A lot of models have that problem though.

Must not have been R-22 refrigerant. Dreading AC tuneup telling me none is available to recharge mine

TWN is forecasting the hottest temp IMBY in years of 34C/93F with a humidex of 42/108! On Wednesday when they set my high to 31C I actually got to 35C; I'm hoping I get to the 100F mark somehow later tomorrow. After that amazing low on Sat morning of 5C/41F I'm looking forward to this.

85 at MDW and 83 at ORD.  Both places went up 11 degrees after 11 am yesterday.  May not be an exact repeat today but should be a decent general guide.  This drier type of airmass allows a bit more warming than usual after late morning.

If it holds through the rest of the day (1 am CDT), this morning's low of 77 in Fargo would be their 2nd warmest min on record in June, and 4th warmest all-time. Records go back to 1881.

The only warmer mins are:

7/10/1936: high 110, low 82

7/11/1936: high 106, low 80

6/28/1996: high 93, low 78

Mentioned it up the thread, but I think we could have a late-ish high again today with this setup and being near the solstice.  Yesterday highs held off until around 5 pm central at ORD/MDW and temps stayed at those highs for like 45-60 mins.
