In terms of the last 30ish years, man heat was close to average,  gigiheat greater than average.  We are going to shave some off these temps, but this could be the warmest summer since 2016.  All the wetness the last two summers had a hand in cutting back the man heat, but also (plus given bathwater ocean temps becoming the new normal) propped up mins slightly more than maxes.

Good stuff Tony! Takeaway from this summer will be all strong to severe storms & the multiple monsoon dumps. Heat wise it was a one hit wonder & even that was nothing on par with our epic heat waves of the past. Looks like we're settling in to a typically boring late summer pattern, without tropical influence things can get pretty mundane this time of year.

Yeah this definitely was the summer of pouring rains and Mount Laurel severe weather.

Well what I mean is, this 90-92 type heat is very MEH. All philly has to do is be sunny most of the day in july under normal circumstances and they usually sniff 90. So why is anything under 95 so remarkable. It seems like that is the new norm. So I use 95+ as heat and in that regard this summer was nto that bad IMO. It was all about the dews

I don't disagree with you.  I go out of my way to not post the words "heat wave" whenever a run of 90 or higher starts unless it looks like the mid July event (or worse).  90 is just a nice even number.   BTW the average PHL high temp for the last 30 July(s) is up to 87.7F,  that is up from the current POR normal of 87.1F.

The Euro has had it too, although not to the extent of that UKMET run.

Welp, no tropical troubles here at the obx,  but enough wind to make swimming life threatening.

I left Corolla on Sunday.  On Friday and Saturday the yellow flags were up.  Before then though we were lucky with calm and very clear water.  I could actually see my feet in shoulder deep water.  I never had that in the 6 years I've been there.

It’s finally cleared out in Corolla after lots of fog earlier.

Same here. Some decent low level rising fog and clouds today giving a quasi arctic sea smoke effect. Red flags may be dropped tomorrow but I guess that will depend on the  strong tides from the system off shore rather than the wind.  Not a bad week so far, but definitely a better pool week than beach week.

Looks like we picked the right week to visit the obx, especially since I never buy the trip insurance. One day that will bite me, I'm sure.
