How hot is it?

Summertime is here in the Woodlands area. Rode last Saturday when it got up to 98 degrees and 70% humidity. Time to get wheels rolling at 06:00 to beat the heat. Won't be long before the triple digits get here.
On a good note I only have 3 to 4 more months of this to look forward too.....~sigh~

Summer heat and humidity has arrived here in central Florida ! I try to wait until about 0830 to allow for the morning drivers to get to work before I head out, and like to be home by 1030 !

It felt like early/mid spring today. Started off at 59F and went up to 71F. I just wore long sleve baselayer under the jersey and knee covers. Will leave them off going home. I ain't complaining. It beats the hell out of 92F and 80% humidity that the NYC area can go up to in the summer...

Looking at Accuweather for the month of June near Seattle = looks like a lot of 70s and mid-80s for daytime highs.
Been a great Spring for riding up here in the PNW.

Here is Florida folks try to get out by 6-7AM unless they want to roast in the sauna. Had a "late" start this morning. It was 7:30 when I left home.

Looking forward to some hot humid weather I always ride better and longer in the heat. I always go out and ride when the heat is close to peak temp early afternoon.

SW FL Got out today at 1:23AM for start of my 133 miler., Garmin had 77F and house outside digital had 80F. Finished in the low 90's with humidity high from beginning to end. Stupid crash at 118.8 mile mark didn't help at all.

June is glorious and fleeting here in VT. On days I work I can ride an hour at lunch and not return a sweaty mess. Temps in 70s, low humidity. July and August bring haying weather and hotter, stickier conditions. Fall can be wet and chilly or clear and crisp - always a crapshoot - but June is pretty reliable so I’ve been riding nearly every day.

Highs in the mid 90's all week, humidity hovering around 60%. Not too bad for around here. Humidity should decrease from here on out as the temps rise. By July rides are strictly an early morning thing.

It was over 80 here yesterday, with the humidity about 15%, very nice. Today it was 70 until I rode up into the mountains where it was much cooler. It was very nice when near the bottom the temps suddenly were much higher.

After a pretty harsh winter, the mid/late spring has been pretty nice so far. This past week or so, the temp has been lowish 70's F. ... nights are good (for me) sleeping weather in the 50's. Should start warming up any time now!
