Where you at that it's going to be 105? I know you guys up north have been having a heat wave, but I thought it was because it hit 90. So funny to see New Yorkers suffering because it's 90.
We hit 31C, actual temperature, today. The humidex was 41C+.
The humidity level is so high that the act of sweating is ineffective in cooling the body. Sweat just does not evaporate. All it does is run down into your socks. I spent the whole workday soaking wet. It gets kinda hard to hold tools when your hands are slick with sweat.
But a major storm front moved through this afternoon. The first wave brought heavy rains, but no temperature drop, just a steam bath. The evening storms dropped the temperature. I hear another storm moving in now.
