Interesting to note that the tropical depression that formed today off SC was the result of an MCV that spawned in southern middle TN on July 1. It moved off the coast of Georgia and had maintained convection since.

The models are showing what I would consider our first true heatwave next weekend into the following week. 

The GFS 2m temperatures and urban heat island effect may be too extreme but widespread mid to perhaps upper 90s with humidity may occur in our area which much worse occurring in Kansas, Oklahoma, and Southwest Missouri.

Was just about to post this.  The 15 day has 90+ every day.  True summer time heat has arrived!

At first, it does look like the heat ridge will be centered moreover say Kansas/Oklahoma allowing for scattered heat of the day storms to cool us off.

I do think as we end this month and head into August the Desert SW Monsoon will kickoff and push the core of the ridge closer to our area during the classic dog days of summer from late July and probably last through the entire month of September, to be honest.

My new weather station peaked out at 95.5 today with a heat index of 104. It may be a bit high, but it isnít too far off. Itís definitely the hottest day of the year so far.

Was hot for sure.  Got a good mid day run in though!

Pretty hard to believe that in less than 2 months the meteorological Fall thread will be started. Wow, how time flies!

Y'all crazy. My best distance runs happen between freezing and 45 degrees Fahrenheit

Yikes, I wonít even consider running unless itís 60+ degrees out and really prefer 85+.  I just love how it kicks your a$$ when itís hot as ****.  Never get that feeling when itís mild temps.

I don't mind the heat as long as it's not outrageously humid. The thing is, I have to prepare for a long distance run in advance when it's hot and humid outside. I typically can just bolt out the door in mild or cold weather without having to worry too much about hydration, but if the heat index is pushing 100 then I will need a day to get ready for any run longer than 8 miles. The longest distance I'll run in weather like this is normally 5 or 6 miles.

In the winter, I can put on my trail shoes and run 10 to 15 miles without a worry as long as my pace doesn't exceed 7:30/mile. I just cannot do that kind of running in the summer heat. I like to shorten my distances and focus on speed in the summer if I can.

North MS has been an afternoon convection hot spot for the past couple weeks. I have had rain to some degree daily for almost 5 days in a row now. ::flag:: ;D

I agree with you there. Definitely canít do the same distances in the heat, I keep it to 3-4 miles but up my pace.

Just me, but I refuse to run if it's over 80.

Of course, I also refuse to run if it's under 80.

To me, the best running/hiking/jogging/power walking temperature is between 39 and 75 degrees with perhaps a moderate amount of humidity and a light breeze. Not desert-dry but not as Beau Dodson calls it, "The air that you wear".   

If it gets too cold the risk of injury can increase especially if you don't have a good stretching routine.  If it gets too hot or too humid then you can overexert yourself.
