Best summer ever. It rained, like, every goddamn day. And it was glorious.

58 here in Georgetown

59 here in Hewitt, and my AC is running set on 70 since it’s been so humid and in/out of rain all day.

I had no idea the temperature would be dropping. Walked outside earlier and...

AC off... Nephew from boston still bitching about how hot it is. Closed off all the AC vents on his side of the house just to be a dick. My windows are open. Dog is even using her bed tonight and not just lying on the tile. 

We need/deserve more of this.

This is the meteorological equivalent of the "dollar on a fishing line" gag.

Yeah, it’s nice out right for for 4 o’clock, but I was hoping to see some mid-sixties temps tonight. It’s not looking like that will happen.

Cooled down a little bit in Houston this morning, but man is it still soupy out there. Dewpoint still in the 70's. Looks like it should dry out a bit tomorrow and Sunday, so that's at least something.

It’s freaking perfect up here today. Little bit humid but the slight breeze makes everything mighty fine. Nothing quite like drinking beer in the driveway starting at 10:30.

Yeah, it's starting to dry out. Much better than when I went for a bike ride in the soup around 8 this morning. Was still sweating my ass off despite temp only being ~73.

That little cooloff/breeze you're feeling now is a mild cool front making its way through ATX.  That's why temps will be about 5-6 degrees cooler the next few days than the weekend was.

Not bad.  We've essentially been skipping the 90's the past 1 1/2 weeks and going into the 80's (with this past weekend exception).  How long can that last, lol?

Forecast models currently have a very mild front making its way to Houston sometime Friday and bringing down temps & humidity levels a few clicks to make for a rather pleasant weekend, but it doesn't look like we're expected to catch anything major before the end of the month. As of now, it could possibly be a third straight year where those of us in the city proper make it all the way into October before recording a temp below 70 (not typical). 

On the bright side, looks like this long hot summer has pretty much run out of gas. Wednesday is the last day on the extended forecast with a high above 92 or a low above 75.  Following some rain on Thursday, it's a whole lot of ~90/72 days on the 14-day charts. If you hadn't already noticed, the days will start seeming significantly shorter, as we're entering the ~3 week period of maximum sunlight duration decline (-1:46/day). By the 27th, we'll be under the 12-hour mark when sunrise begins occurring later in the morning than sunset in the evening. 

In the meantime, gonna have to dust off my "winter" clothes for a much-needed vacation in the mountains starting Friday. I'm looking at like 5 straight days of 65/40, sunny and dry.

I've been noticing the days getting shorter for the last month and a half.  Used to when I got up at 5:30, by the time I had my first cup of coffee it was already bright enough outside I didn't need the lights on in the kitchen.  Now I'm almost done with the full pot by the time I can cut off the lights.  I  remember when it was still fairly light out at 8:45P, but now it's getting pretty dark by 7:30P.

I'm already dreading those days where it's freaking dark at 5:15.  Hate that shit.

Houston weather is the worst. And the forecasters never learn from mistakes.

This summer has been pretty tame in the grand scheme of things.  Oh there were plenty of days that it was just God awful hot, but it didn't seem that bad this year compared to past summers.

Nice to see when the pros agree with you. From this morning's SpaceCity post:

The overall pattern begins to change by Wednesday night or so, as an atmospheric disturbance nears the area. This should allow for the development of some clouds in the sky, and a healthy chance of rain showers.

We’re now pretty confident that some sort of front will push into Houston on Friday night or Saturday morning, but we still don’t have great confidence in the details. At this point it’s probably best to temper expectations. Yes, we’ll see some noticeably drier air. Yes, this should shave a few points of high and low temperatures. But no, at least right now, we can’t definitely say it will feel like fall in Houston. However, the good news is that we don’t expect to go back to highs in the mid-90s and lows near 80 after this front passes. Summer’s days are numbered as we should see more fronts after this one.

Yeah it hasn’t been that bad. Would still guess they are off an average of 1-2 degrees per day if you look at a 5-day forecast against actuals

The blastfurnace is coughing and sputtering. Bout time to shut her down for fall maintenance.

Time to start enjoying mornings and evenings again. Dewpoints above 70 are kindly encouraged to fuck right off and never return.
