I have never seen my barometer this high since I got it for Christmas – a whopping 1055 mb. Can’t say I’ve seen the humidity this high, either, (it’s pointing at 60; sorry about the flash) and this is indoors!
It’s around 11 am and my balcony, which is in the shade on the west side of my apartment, is showing 24C/75F. We are expecting 28C/82F in the shade today. That is very unusual!
The morning sun has been warming up my east-facing kitchen all morning and the temperature there is 28C/82F – which explains the liquifying coconut oil in my cupboard.
It was hotter yesterday, though, at 30C/86F in the shade. When I open my balcony door, the sun hits the thermometer on it and I get to watch the needle soar over 42C/108F. Unlike the natives, I seek shade and stay still. I know we need to stock up on sunshine and that this weather is a blessing, but I’m still a California girl in the sun.
