The past 3 years has seen quite a few summer temperatures over 100, but not this year.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 19, 2016 at 1:47pm

My temperatures are about average (87°).  They were warmer than average in June, often getting to 100, but not in July or August so far.

Rainfall is way below average.  June average is about 1.5 inch, but this year was 0.5  July average is 0.65, but this year was 0.1  August average is 0.59, but so far this year is 0.05

Joan, I don't know if it's record.  There are usually a couple of very hot weeks in the summer here.  Nights still cool off so there is some releif.  My house does not have a/c but I have a portable a/c for a bedroom, which becomes home for me and my dog.

I don't take the heat very well any more.

I'm just hoping for some good summer kitchen garden crops.  Maybe that elusive holy grail for me, okra, will produce.

Daniel, is Vancouver, WA getting record temps? I can't even imagine 100 F there. 

We have short spells of over 90F but mostly cool and partly cloudy. It is perfect weather. I hope it holds like this for a few years. Let's see what winter brings.

In my neck of the woods, over 100F yesterday.  Despite watering, there was a lot of wilting.  Some lily flowers browned while still in the bud.  Not in the mood myself to be outside.  Morning is cooler, so I went out to water today.

Spud, you are probably hotter than we are.  Kathy and Randy, I imagine both of you are hotter too and more humid.

Sorry you have too much rain Kathy.  I sometimes say I would like more rain here, but actually, I'm glad I live in a dry climate.  Mainly because I hate a lot of bugs.  I hate flies flying in front of my face all the time, mosquitoes biting me, slugs eating my garden, termites eating my house, and many others that come with moisture.

Yes, Kathy, my raspberries (red) fruit twice a year, unlike the black. And yes, I've noticed rains have hit southern Indiana and Kentucky, but not up here (Laf. area). Luck of the draw.

Welcome Nightshade.

My raspberries produce in May/June on last years canes, then in August/September on this years canes.

Randy, it's odd that your raspberries are just coming in. Ours ripen by the first week of July. And you've not had rain? We've had so much rain tomatoes were ruined for everyone this summer. Flash flood warnings almost daily. It's probably our wettest summer on record.
