Wow, it peaked at 112F and now 3 hors later it has dropped to 87F.

What does the forecast for tomorrow look like?

Pointing my weather app at Seattle (I have family there), it reports 106°/68° for today and 90°/64° tomorrow (and a high of 84° the day after).

That says to me that it should start cooling down a bit.

I was just outside and it is 76F. Crazy! My daughter is near Portland and it's still pretty hot up there. A nice breeze blowing in marine air. last Friday predictions were for high 90s all week.

92 tomorrow and 87 the next day. I can get back to work!

My part of northern Minnesota weather has been pretty much perfect
Not too hot, not too cold, and we have been getting some needed rain.

An out of the south breeze off Lake Superior also can't hurt if it's happening. It's our big central air conditioning unit, if you're not living too far inland.

But that high pressure system is supposedly moving eastward, so we probably have hotter and dryer coming soon.
