True its nothing epic, but a hot stretch still. This summer has been a couple degrees above avg but its been driven more by warm overnight lows than extended heat waves. In 2010-2013 summers it'd be an avg day or slight cool down but for this summer it'll be plenty hot
but forecast for my zip are 92 92 94 91 90 90..
There not alot of 100+ record highs this point on. Mostly 90s..even a few low to mid 90s for rec highs in mid to late Aug which I found slightly surprising at first.

Its the 36th straight day above 80* in the Park.
I didn't think of that as that significant but its actually ranks fairly high. It should add at least 10 more, possibly till the end of the month. I most I heard is in the low 50s.
Coupled with a record warm May it makes for a long steady warm season, even if it doesnt have lots of extreme heat

Temperatures are in the low 80's right now with dew points in the low 60's. If dew points remain in the sixties during this hot stretch it will not feel that uncomfortable outside and they are forecast to stay in the sixties

Didn't feel too bad today. This heat wave doesn't come with as much humidity.

Going to be a hot one this week. The summer in general hasn't been bad in my opinion. The only heat that has been felt, has been by heat waves which last a week it seems.

Hot today and tomorrow. Rest of week mid 80s.
Nws disco...

AS FAR AS TEMPS...SLIGHTLY COOLER TEMPS ON TUE DESPITE H85 TEMPS SIMILAR TO THOSE ON MON. H85-H1000 THICKNESSES ARE SLIGHTLY LOWER AS WELL AS H5 HEIGHTS. WINDS ARE ALSO FORECAST TO BECOME S A FEW HOURS EARLIER THAN MON...THEREFORE THINK THAT THESE SLIGHT DIFFERENCES WILL PROVIDE A TEMPS A FEW DEGREES COOLER THAN MON. THE HUMIDITY WILL REMAIN HIGH THROUGH THE WEEK...BUT HEAT INDICES ARE CURRENTLY FALLING SHORT OF 95 DEGREES IN NYC ON TUE AND SINCE THEY ARE NOT FORECAST TO REACH THIS FOR 2 CONSECUTIVE DAYS...NO HEAT ADVSY HAS BEEN ISSUED. TEMPS WILL BE IN THE 80S FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK WITH NO HEAT ISSUES EXPECTED. &&

93 in the park with dew points in the low to mid sixties making the heat tolerable. Frank my question is why such low humidity levels this summer with such an active and strong subtropical jet stream. I believe we've had such a good summer because of the lack of humidity and also the lack of severe weather and hurricanes. Sometimes temps in the mid eighties with dew points in the seventies feel worse than today

July was brutal. I remember there being plenty of humid days when it got into the 90's. Sun angle plays a roll. Lower sun angle in August compared to July. Also, the mean ridge with this heat wave is located in the southwest. The heat last month has the ridge almost over us. Direction in which the wind blows is key.

Lots of 88/89 degree days in CPK so never could never get 3 90s in a row.
Its dry there now that helps it'll heat up. When there is recent rain CPK really struggles to heat up compared to neighboring sites.

Only so many days you can be out in this heat, a day off in the a/c is a good thing! Thankfully at the shore it has been tolerable, no a/c yet in the main part of the house. The kids came down and put the a/c on upstairs though! They are so spoiled! Enjoy the hills!

... Record high temperature tied at Central Park NY...

A record high temperature of 95 degrees was tied at Central Park NY
today. The previous record of 95 was set in 1944.

Was in the hills at 2PM - West Jersey Hills out by Francis in Randolph - 92* out there but not as humid.
93* with 56% humidity, land is parched.
Could use that hybrid trop system the cmc is showing for middle next week.
