Wow. Crazy heat comes in behind Barry. We really didnít see it on this end. It was very breezy all day, and Iím not sure that we even hit 90. Unfortunately, Iím moving houses this Saturday. Right now, looks like the HI will be between 103-108 unless it rains. The GFS is advertising daily rain for the next several days, but it majorly missed with the Barry remnants. Only 0.03Ē here.

Coming a flood here atm. Honestly had no idea this was coming. It did cool off about 35 degrees. More fuel for the fire tomorrow.

It's not even 7AM and, depending on which source you check, humidity in Knoxville is between 95-100%.  I'm a life-long Tennesseean and gladly accept that we get some heat and humidity in the summer but this stretch where it's this muggy 24/7 is starting to get tiresome.  I've been running a dehumidifier in my house in addition to the AC to keep things more comfortable and it doesn't look like I'll get to turn that unit off this week.

Relative humidity is typically around that range at this time of morning because weíre near the dew point. Thatís why condensation forms as dew, because the air is saturated. RH will drop as the temperature rises. Itís a ďrelativeĒ function of the current temperature because of the physical properties of air and the amount of moisture it can hold based on temperature. Really, dew point is the constant to look at instead. Dew point over 70 is humid.

Dew point over 80 like as was seen in the western part of the state is really stifling.

I checked your DP in Knoxville, and itís 75. Thatís humid alright.

Great explanation; and also a good example of why I shouldn't post so early in the morning as I forget the science around the numbers.  Regardless of the numbers, it felt so bad when I took the trash out this morning that it inspired words the admins would have to come in here and edit...  ::rant::

Yeah, it's definitely summer here on the Plateau.  I'm hoping we actually have a fall season this year.  Last year, we did a hike in Big South Fork in October and i was wishing we didn't.  It was in the 90's still, and down-right awful hiking weather.

Yuck!

I had a nice morning walk this morning in Fairview. I got up at 7:00 before the nasty heat set in. It actually felt pretty crisp outside. I was surprised it wasn't so muggy. The sun was out in full force, so not having that insulating layer of clouds definitely helped bring down the humidity a notch.

We don't have the clouds to help temper things today.  Which means we will feel the effects from the great blowtorch.   

Minnesota gets to experience a heat advisory/excessive heat warning and a Moderate Risk of severe weather that includes both tornadoes and widespread damaging winds so that is kinda interesting.

Just a reminder that this heat can be deadly... take breaks and stay hydrated.
