This is the readout from my weather station at home today. The high was 103 degs F. One hundred and three! Thirty-nine degrees Celsius. And my house in not air conditioned.
My sensor is in a shaded area on my back porch so I feel it is fairly accurate. Notice the Heat Warning that is starting to scroll across the bottom of the display.
At 8:24 pm when I took this picture, it was 88 degrees inside the house. Whew! On the ride home from work this afternoon, the car's thermometer showed 105 degrees, but that was on hot asphalt.
Seattle broke an all-time high today. The National Weather Service recorded a temp of 103 at Sea-Tac Airport today that broke the previous record of 100 degrees last recorded in 1994. Today was the fifth consecutive day with temps above 85 degrees. The average temp for July is only 75 degrees.
Holy heat wave, Batman!
What I wouldn't give for a swimming pool, some air conditioning...wait! I have air conditioning. In the camper. We are sleeping in the camper tonight.
