Rain or no rain, it won't be 97 degrees, and we may even stay below 90 after temperature warm back up. I'm excited about this.

At least for East Mesa, the chance for rain on Sunday/Monday has been removed.

Having a lovely time here in Blythe, what with the little breezes wafting through...

I thought my rig might blow over a few minutes ago! Gusts are close to 50 mph right now.

It's probably a bad sign when we just, just cooled down, and with expected highs on Sunday back in the low to mid-90s (93 specifically at present) my first thought is one of dread for next summer. Probably.

It's been raining here for a couple weeks, but a change was in store and it snowed most of this morning. Because the ground was so wet, most of it melted off in a few hours.

It was HOT hiking out of the Superstitions yesterday. Can't recall it ever feeling as summer-like on the eve of November. Thank goodness for springs still being active - even with recent water reports with this year's drought I was sowing seeds of doubt in my mind.

The Hell that is the city will be back into the middle 90s this week. I honestly couldn't care less why, it just will be and when the (-) outweigh the (+) you stop wanting to deal with something.

After the previous record gets destroyed today, there's a rumor that tomorrow may be the last 90 day for phx in 2020. While I'll wait on believing that as fact, I do look forward to the upcoming change in temperatures.

I work with some developmentally disabled adults, one of them is quite obsessed with the weather and loves to chat about it. He's assigned me the task of calling the local TV station to relay to the weather forecaster his ideal temperatures. If only that request was as easy to fulfill for him.

I like warmer temperatures, too, but not this. 95 in August? Great! 95 in November? Too hot. I don't know what average is, but I would like some low 80s. I think that might be normal. We've had miserable heat since late April when it went from nice one day to 108 the next, and just seemed to stay that way every day.

Oh, it's 97 right now. 97 in November? More like, "why the hell am I living here?".

The weather has been great for a couple days in NJ, since the rain blew away and gave us a peek at the sun. The memory of it may have to last us all winter. I'm wistful because now is about the time I'd be packing to spend a few weeks in AZ. Maybe in the Spring.

We didn't get many nice days this Spring, those 75 to 89 degree days that I think of as the staple of a Sonoran Desert Spring and what has basically made every year I have lived in Phoenix ( and Tucson for that matter) worth while once the 105/110+ days arrive. It also appears that we won't get many or any, really, this Autumn, going right from 99 to 63, which is insane. Basically just flopping from one extreme to the other and back. Bipolar weather. Everyone loves a severely unmedicated bipolar person, so why not in weather?
