Come up to Northern Michigan. It has been the coldest summer EVER, also setting new records.

July also set a record in Iowa for the coldest July ever. I won’t trade the Texans. The weather has been fantastic for humans—the crops need some heat therms. The tomatoes are not doing well, either.

Meanwhile the glaciers are closing in on Chicago (Ohio was pretty cool this July also).

How cold was it? We've got some facts for July (Chicago)

I know about Houston and south Texas, but how's the general humidity in and around Austin?

I was reading something about Kerrville the other day, and it was claimed that part of the state isn't "southern" humid.

And we here in Northern Illinois are having one of the coldest — if not THE coldest — Summers on record. Today it is overcast, windy, and in the high 60s; more like early Fall than Summer.

We don't have our usual sea breeze to help cool us down in the evening. Without that, no sea breeze showers, either.

Hot temps and no rain begets hot temps and no rain.

Yea, but up the road 180 miles here in Dallas, we are having one of the coolest, wettest summers in my known history.

Humidity begins to disappear as the heat goes over 100 anyway. It’s pretty bad here in the Bryan-College Station area, with actual temperatures as high as 104, with heat indexes as high as 112. It is a little less humid around the Kerrville area, as the elevation is higher. I you go north you get out of most of the humidity about Abilene.

Idiot developers down here (in cahoots with the local water authorities) have sold water rights well into the future and well beyond possible capacity. The other day they decided we won't run out until 2080. MY ASS!

Sorry for my fellow freepers in Texas but here in NYC it’s been a relatively mild summer, so far. I don’t think we’ve hit 85º yet this year and we sure have had lots of rain.

Looks like you guys need a nice slow moving tropical storm coming ashore about Corpus Christi or thereabouts.

Ain’t that the truth. My yard just crunches when I walk in it.

As a natural born Texan, I never expected to be cold in July--LOL! However, the lack of rain to cool things a bit and keep the crops growing and the lakes full would be nice.

We had just a bit under 1/2 of rain last night--the first we've had in 7-8 weeks.

I have been down in the Valley several times recently and it is bone dry down there. I really feel for those having to put up with the drought—not to mention the broken foundations.

I don’t think NaturalBornTexanGrandpa will be replying to you. I noticed the mods pulled all posts by NBTG after someone outed him on this thread at #107.

As someone who lives in the middle of the “San Fransisco of the South”, I think it’s a curse.

Now we’re off to set the record for August as well.

I guess S. TX is hording all the atmospheric energy from the rest of the nation. The rain the other day was spectacular. I heard a big “woo hoo” come from one of my neighbors while I was grilling some prime porterhouses under my covered back porch.

1431 & New Hope - Veterans Memorial Waterpark: with all the water features spraying, shooting or dumping water everywhere on the acre, the temp stays about 70 and you get a heckuva tan.

$5/person/day. Ice cream, vending, pizza delivery.

I already have my bottled water and 'D' cell batteries. Waiting for electricity is the worst part.

The weather guys and gals keeping telling us we're stuck between a *developing* El Nino and a drought. There's nothing out in the Atlantic or the Caribbean to give us much hope.

(El Nino suppresses tropical store development)

"general humidity in and around Austin"

Not official by any means but by my reckoning it's only gotten humid in the last week or so. Sadly the rain has been around but not on my place.

In general humidity seems to have increased in the last 40 years. I don't know if it's the concrete, the lakes or older age but it certainly feels more humid here in the last two decades than it did in the past.
