Yesterday (June 21 2011) was the official start of summer.
Well, it's here in Phoenix all right.
This is a shot of the 7 day forecast on TV this morning at 5AM and 84º.
Yep, 113ºF (45ºC) in the afternoon, and it doesn't get below the mid 80's at night here most of the week with no relief until Monsoon season.
It is bone dry single digit humidity now so it is not a sticky heat, it is more like a blast furnace motorized biking it at 40+ MPH after 2PM.
Maybe it's time to devise a little swamp cooler for the handlebars to keep me cooled off?
