  • Heat wave

    By Monday, temperatures will be 30 degrees above average. Yeah, it sucks, but I've always felt that we get off easy.

    Be safe, folks.

    Yup, it going around. We have extreme heat warnings here for most of the next week. Apparently the ALL TIME record for Edmonton is 37 deg C (98 F), and there are a couple days next week that will equal, or potentially surpass that. That's awfully hot for a bunch of pasty white guys

    EDIT: For those that care, the UNIT CONVERTER in the link below, by Josh Madison is super handy, it's been on my desktop of work & home computers since the late nineties.....

    But when it comes to more techy stuff like Newton-Meters to Ft-lbs, etc, this one has converters for units you've likely never heard of....

      Those of us here in the areas of the continent that have 4 seasons are hearing rumors that some folks in your region may not even have air conditioning, by design.

        We just used our’s yesterday.
        normally we get by without
        But now? Nope. It will run when the house gets warm.
        100+ is rare for us and tomorrow is forecast to be 111...
        90 is something that hits and cools off
        Whole of next week is in the 90’s.

            when I lived in France, I used this rule - double the C, add 30 degrees. So for your car - 37*2 =74, plus 30 104. Accurate enough to determine what to wear....

            it hit 110 on my deck, but that's direct sun

                this heat must be more common than not.
                it creates fresh water steam to the coast, you get big lumber..

                I love solar minimum.
                maine gets more like a normal seattle (foggy all day etc etc) and that sucks.

                hope to see some real heat here too.

                I was in coveralls today, welding leathers. almost a chill in the air.

                      it's rained so much that it's very humid - and today is supposed to be the highest temps of all.

                        My kid is in Gresham (the sticks of Portland) and he is whining that it is hotter and more humid than Florida!

                          For more accuracy use: 2C - 10% + 32 = F. The other way: F - 32 + 10% divided by 2.

                            if math was easy, I'd be an engineer. Just sayin'

                            and the worst day was Monday.... 112* in the shade at 80% humidity. For context, Atlanta, GA has never had that level of heat and humidity at once.

                            But today, it was 68 degrees when I was driving in for work...might hit 80 this afternoon.... thank heavens.
