    Yesterday I experienced the "It's not the heat, but the HUMIDITY" phenomena in the flesh.

    Saturday it got to 37C and was bearable, can't remember the humidity, while yesterday it was "just" 29C but humidity of 80%, it was agony.

    Went to get the shopping in Milan yesterday. Only about supermarket was only about 400 metres away, it was 6:30 pm, thought I'd be fine.

    Left the house cool and perfectly dry, within 2 minutes I had melted. I quite literally got there a wet, disgusting, sweaty mess. My shirt was drenched. Horrible, the heat and humidity here. Utterly horrific.

    the Mendocino Complex Fire, the Largest Wildfire in California History
    At more than 290,692 acres, the fire spans more than 454.2 square miles. Thats almost the size of Los Angeles, nearly double the size of Chicago, and more than triple the size of cities like Philadelphia, Detroit, Portland, Atlanta and Las Vegas.

    ....

    How did the Mendocino Complex Fire get so big?
    The Mendocino Complex Fire grew under conditions ripe for an aggressive, fast-moving wildfire. Bone-dry vegetation, triple-digit temperatures and afternoon winds fueled the fire as it rapidly spread tens of thousands of more acres with each day since it first sparked. Blazing temperatures during the day have exacerbated the wildfire. California is also coming off of a years-long drought and a notably dry winter, making officials anticipate this season could grow far worse.

    Aw hell... talking about humidity...

    Right now its 72 F (22 C) with humidity at 82%. Feels stuffy but not too bad ... for now. Its predicted that by 8pm (1 hour away) Humidity will rise to 88% ... and continue to rise. By 5am it's projected to be about 63F (18C)

    Sounds great right? ... nope Humidity is expected to reach 100%!

    Mother nature is taunting me with 60 f temps but humidity so great I need to keep windows closed and have A/C on.

    When talking humidity the key is less the actual percentage of humidity, but the dew point. The weather this summer has utterly sucked in large part to the dew point being constantly in the 60s-70s.

    Most weather stations I've seen don't give dew points. Even at Weather.com, you can change F to C, and it can tell you =DESCRIPTION(cloudy, clear ect), TEMP (real temp), FEELS (with heat index), PRECIP, HUMIDITY, and WIND. But it doesn't say dew point.

    I'm guessing that its usually part of the "what it really feels like" part. And on that, I do agree it is very important. Being from Texas, that is what we really paid attention to. I've seen online descriptions of NE Texas having summers with avg temp of high 90s. But the truth is with the heat index, July & Aug will be in triple digits. Days of "only 96 F" are really "it feels like 108 F" (and too many days of 110+, that's what drove me up north!)

    But humidity can still be bad. It's only 64 F right now for me, feels like 64 F, but humidity at 94% is keeping my windows closed.

    Crap its forecasting that hurricane Florence is going to 'crawl along the coast'. No wonder there's gonna be catastrophic flooding.
    Was it Sandy or different storm that 'crawled' so had stayed in local area can made the flooding worse than if just moved through and didn't 'crawl through'.

    Large Earthquake Strikes Indonesia's Sulawesi Island; Damage Reported

    Actually is seems there were multiple earthquakes hitting the area. While some tremblers were around 5.0, there's at least one that's 7.1

    Easily one of the most deadly disasters this year for sure!

    In other news I hope that anybody that lives in the FL panhandle are evacuating from Hurricane Michael. It is forecasted to become a major hurricane of at least 111 mph by landfall.

    Edit: Hurricane Michael is beginning to pummel the Florida Panhandle. Hopefully anybody that lives in that area has already evacuated. Unfortunately Hurricane Michael is going to go down as the strongest hurricane(it now has 145mph winds as of 8AMEDT) to ever strike the Florida Panhandle. Stay safe everyone.

    First snow of the season! Woo! It actually probably won't last because in the morning it's turning to rain, which will make it ice. But oh well. 5-8 inches is pretty damn good for a first fall.

    Always reminds me of this:

    Always reminds me of this:

    We got our first snowfall too here in Madison, about a day or so ago (really didn't pay attention as I slept lol)

    But yeah I have to laugh at that chart. It's all true for the South, but then its because they usually don't get snow so are unprepared to deal with it. While I lived in Lewisville (or was it Carrollton?, nah doesn't matter they are sister cities) I had one snotty New Yorker try to sneer down on the south, saying we were fools for panicking, "Sand and salt don't work, just slap some snow tires on and it's fine". I bit back at her, saying snow tires wouldn't work if the snow is only 1-3 inches, its likely to damage the roads instead. With that little accumulation, sand and salt does work, since salt melts and sand gives traction. But we still get black ice a lot and that's what dangerous since most don't encounter it enough to know how to stay in control of the car.

    Obviously I say, stay safe everyone down there. And remember: we survived, so can you.
