There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

Scorchio number 22, tenth in a row. We had 38 scorchios last year I think.

We had some rain around 9pm. Thunder and lightning in fact http://twitter.com/ChikageWeather/status/1161840669637455872 Although we didn't get much rain here in Austin there must have been some decent totals nearby. It knocked a few degrees off the temperature though.

Scorchio number 24, twelfth in a row. Apart from two days ago when it was 103, the past nine days have all reached either 104 or 105, and it's beginning to show. At work yesterday, in the afternoon, it was 99° on our side of the place, but 102° in the packaging room where the pasteuriser is, and this morning when I got up at 5.20, the thermostat on the a/c was showing 85. It's mostly been 83 or 84 for the past month or two.

But look! The daily average maximum has gone down from 98 to 97 smiley - biggrin It might not be over yet but we're past the peak smiley - ok

(Remembering that the first time we made 112° was on September 5th 2000).

Scorchio number 27 (I skipped one last one week), 14th in a row. Unsurprisingly, with only two non-scorchio days and maximum temperatures of 103 to 105 for eleven days in a row, this is now the second hottest August on record, so far.

By the way, there'll be hiatus for a few days. It's that time of the year when I head about 80 miles south to see Dewey who, somehow, is still alive and is now 18 smiley - wowsmiley - cat

I'll catch up when I get back.

Right, here we go. I think I have the resources to make this work, although the temperature and rain forecasts for each day won't be the same as they were on each day if I'd been here because they change each day.

No scorchio, actual rain!

There was a lot of rain in the region late yesterday afternoon and into the evening, some of it heavy enough to cause minor flooding out in the hill country. A lot of it was very localised. Camp Mabry recorded 1.3" in the hour between 6.51pm and 7.51pm, while the airport (9 miles distant) got none at all, and we (5½ miles from Mabry) only got enough to wet the ground, although there was plenty of thunder around.

I've just checked the readings at Camp Mabry and the airport. At Mabry (3.51pm)it was 100° and 35% humidity with a heat index of 106. At the airport it was 100° and 42% with a heat index of 111­ smiley - yikes

Heh... Our high today at the Johnson Space Center is only expected to get to 92°. Are you jealous? smiley - envy


Don't be. The humidity will be 62% so our heat index will be 107°.

And speaking of humidity, I've just heard that we can expect our heat index to be at 100 by 11am today, and between 110 and 114 between 3pm and 6pm. Looking at the forecast towards the end of the week I do hope this is the last of it for the summer.

The Camp Mabry heat index might have been 100 by 11am but there was no recording for that hour. It was 103 by noon, though, so there's a good chance it was. The airport definitely was. At the last reading (2.51pm) Mabry was at 100 air and 108 heat index, the airport had 99 and 111, and Del Rio (the third official NWS recording station in the region) had 106 and 112. I also checked the month-to-date figures for Del Rio. It's been hotter than 100 there every day in August (except for one day when it was exactly 100). That didn't even happen in 2011.

At 8.53pm the heat index at the airport was still 104°. It's likely to be a similar kind of day tomorrow.

Scorchio number 34.

The highest heat index shown for Mabry yesterday was 110, and 112 for the airport. There might have have been higher readings but the page doesn't show the *actual* highest heat index the way it does the highest air temperature if a higher temperature occurs between the regular hourly recordings. We only get the hourly numbers with the heat index.
