I see here that monsoon has now pushed throughout the entire southwest, and even all the way up into western Nebraska! For the meantime has eased off our little corner of SW Arizona after already having dropped over 2 inches of rain on just our little town. The watershed hills NE of here got even much higher amounts. It'll take just a moment for this map to appear after clicking....

Hot and so moist it feels like you are wadding through the air. Trying to decide what tobacco would go best with this repressive heat and humidity.

Monsoon in this corner of Arizona is forecasted to recede over the next week and that will raise temps about 10 degrees. Next Monday is supposed to be near 110. But monsoon seems to have a will of its own, so we never know in July-August, and sometimes way into Sept.

It's hazy here. Another dust storm has blown in from the Sahara. There's been several in the last month or so.

107 degrees with plenty of smoke from the Ferguson fire in Mariposa (it's so smoky they can't fly the air attack tankers!)

Last evening was the third monsoon rain that runoff from the house and AZ Room filled my wheel barrel. And that rainwater is cold. To get perspective on this it has already rained more in these first 2 weeks of monsoon than all of last year combined. Weather Underground's NexRad radar shows this storms total rainfall in the hills east and north of here (our town's wells watershed) was again 4 inches +/-. Here at my house maybe 1 - 1/2 in. This is just very very good. Our tap water had begun to taste pretty foul. But this morning our Dew Point is 69 °F & Humidity is 62% and a forecast high today of 94. But next Monday & Tuesday 110.

Next weeks temps look like this, Sunday thru Thursday: 112--115--117--115--112.

On Tuesday, at 117, I will slow cook Baby Back Ribs outside, with no charcoal or Mesquite needed. :chili:

Todays high, 108. Tomorrow, 112. Down 5 degrees from an earlier forecast. By Saturday, it's "only" 96.

95 at our house.
Never had air conditioning. Never really felt the need in the past.

Feeling the need now!

I saw on Weather Underground that 95 °F was the record set in 1982. But it'll cool off nicely overnight up there.

A wider report of "weather where you are."

A global map of temperatures on July 24, 2018 when measured from six feet above sea levels. Since the beginning of June, temperature records have been set across the Northern Hemisphere. On Tuesday, for example, the mercury hit 106 degrees in Japan, which is the country’s highest ever recorded temperature. The heat wave has killed at least 44 people.
