Already sweltering in the Southwest, glad I don't live there.

We will get a few 90's days mid-month but I'm thinking moderate heat with a lot of mid-80's.  I'm thinking precipitation may become an issue for SNE with mid-summer heat and little rain.  I'll take hot and dry tho'... just need to water the veggie garden more.

Dry heat at least. I prefer those than our 90/75 days here. 

Yeah except it's more like 110 there. I have spent a couple Junes in Phoenix. If you see someone outside you give up them a double take.

Yea. I’ve been in vegas during 100-105F days…I still prefer it over swamp ass heat here though.

went to vegas once in July. Was like walking around in a convection oven. I'd never want to have to "live" inside most of the day using artificial fake AC air.

Was in Vegas July 5-11 in 2021.  Couldn't be outside in the sun for more than a minute or two, skin felt as if it were touching a hot stove except there was no way to pull away, while in the shade it just felt like standing too close to a fire.  Temp went over 114 multiple days, highest was 117 I think.  Even the locals were complaining, just brutal.

That did end up hot and oppressive, but we got there with 98/75 instead of 110/50. 

Yeah ... I distinctly recall, that was the version of the GFS that was particularly awful in handling boundary layer thermodynamics. 

Folks might remember that 37/30 during 3" of QPF Nor'easter  earlier that March.  That storm ended up 33/33 cat paws... but because the 37/30 looked so egregious... many thought ( including self ) that there was a chance that was setting us up for a blue monster.  But instead it just kept raining at 33 ... 34.  Very frustrating event for late winter enthusiasm.

We did eventually get a blue bomb later that month but ...anyway... later in the Summer, that ridge with 606 DM non-hydrostats was putting out those 110s over eastern Mass, in the GFS runs, and as you say, we corrected the DPs up to reality, and that sucked the temps down.

One thing about that ridge event/heat ...96/75 -like, there was no and/or only very weakly coherent SW heat mass release.  I've always maintained that we might have been robbed our 'Pacific NW' notoriety but the fact that we had to home grow heat and not get the table set gave us towering heights with room to spare..

The heat and humidity are coming. Not only will be it big heat and humidity but it will be long-duration. Only short breaks will be when shortwaves rotate through bringing severe weather. People can try to poo-poo or downplay but that doesn't change the reality of what is coming. 

My recommendation is get your window units and central air units checked to ensure they are operating at max capacity. Get those thick green curtains for the windows to block out sunlight from entering the house. Create a schedule where you are doing all your outdoor stuff either early morning or late afternoon/early evening. Anyone not prepared will regret. There will be so many chairs, couches, etc. stuck to bottoms it will be visible from the space station.

wonder if this will be one of those summers where this is always on the extended charts
