Thanks!  Every home in Tacoma has a similar view. We manufacture the stench near the Tacoma Dome to discourage outsiders from exiting the freeway, learning the truth and overrunning our little paradise.

Just a special GFS run. 

One way or another I'll be posting up at the Mt. Angel Fireworks. It's a good show, my niece and nephew live by Cook Park in Tigard, but they come down to Mt. Angel because no one does it like the Trojans. 

I had two neighbors in my dorm from Mt Angel!

I love a cold Diet Coke on a hot day, but yeah, definitely not smart to drink those when perspiring heavily.

In fact the last time heat exhaustion got me I had been drinking a soda in the hour beforehand. Started feeling cold and stopped sweating, then got dizzy. All within like 5 minutes. Wake up call for sure, it can hit hard and fast.

I used to work in landscaping with a guy who pounded those Sparks energy beers all day. I didn’t notice what he was always drinking until one day when we were driving somewhere in the work truck and I realized he was drunk... 😳

First day of summer dinner was a freshly picked salad from the garden and a cold beer on the deck with the umbrella tilted for shade and the sound of birds and a distant lawn mower.   Doesn't get any better on the longest day of the year.

Forecasted for 71F.  We hit 68F today.  The long term forecast is looking too sunny for my liking honestly.  It also gets too warm with no real idea if it will cool down beyond those days. I truly dislike the summer months when we go weeks without rainfall.  It's sad to see the greenery fade to yellow. I hope this last bit of rain showers does a good job, because it might be weeks or months before we see it again. I have no AC, hence why I don't like heat.

Fortunately for you…you live in one of the cooler locations in the PNW during the summer. Even cooler than here most days it seems based on your reports.

1988 was very similar 

 

'In contrast, the Great Plains drought in the spring and summer 1988 coincided with an early monsoon that was also very intense."

I sure hope we don't have a repeat of 1988. I don't think Yellowstone can handle a 500 year flood AND devastating fires within 2 months of each other.

Thankfully this month has played out much differently than June 1988 out here so hopefully we continue that trend throughout.

I have friends who like saunas, but the entire concept just sounds horrible to me.

80’s F are no big deal for me. Even 90’s and low 100’s aren’t, if it is not humid and I can sit around in the shade and do nothing. That one time I got sick, I was trying not to be a wimp and still be active. Big mistake.

Yeah... there was a distinct cut off around Everett this afternoon.   The ECMWF nailed it several days out.   My sons were on Lake Sammamish this afternoon and evening with a bunch of their friends and they said it was hot and they were swimming and wake surfing.   I told them a few days ago that they would probably be right on the line there. Luckily they were just south of the line... made for a perfect day on the water.

The daylight hours are a big factor in perception though.    When June is even half way decent it feels way more like summer than a mid September afternoon.

Sun angles are pretty important.   A warm late September day does not really feel like summer.   And when its ridiculously dark and and wet like last week it feels like we are being robbed of summer.   Not sure what to tell you... but I am pretty sure most people would agree if you ask them.  😀

So if it's 80-90 degrees in mid to late September you enjoy it less? September always felt and was a summer month to me in Portland.

Obviously not out here now though. It's very fall like here by early to mid September.

Extrapolating for UHI would basically be a redux w/ lows around 0 at KSEA, but w/ old runway and less concrete like -5 or so

I could go for some -25 action over here on this side

Summer lines up pretty well with the calendar here, on average. Astronomical that is. First half of June is spring and back half of September is fall.

Looks about right. Mid-June to mid-September is historically accurate here.

Tho recent decades it’s more like late-June to late-September.

I agree to a certain extent. PDX average monthly temp is slightly higher in Sept vs June and the monthly mean high is a couple of degrees warmer as well. There have been many years where "summer" just kept on trucking right on through September.

Well... like I said... when its at least half way decent.  

But not when June was behaving like November as Cliff Mass pointed out recently.

Totally agree.  Split up June and September and that is about right.

Depends on where really. Places like central OR and interior CA are just so bone dry that highs in the low 90s, to me, honestly don't feel hot at all. At least not uncomfortable in any way. Western OR is very comfortable humidity-wise but they are on a different level. When I was in Sunriver last summer every day had highs in the 92-95 range (which is quite a bit warmer than normal for there). Our cabin didn't even have AC, and at not one point did we feel like we needed it. Some nights dropped all the way into the 30s. The huge diurnal ranges actually help a lot.
