This is pretty ridiculous. The amount of time we've spent with a dew point >70F this year is outrageous. More than 600 hours just blowing away the previous records for most humid summer.

What do we set the over/under at for the rest of the year? 140?

I know, right? Maybe we can double the old record.

...people always ask me why we go to the Virgin Islands in the summertime. We do it to get out of the stuffy New England air.

Right? Not a bad time to go - especially before hurricane season!

Interesting graphic. While it has been a hot and humid summer, this graphic make it seem worse. I wonder if this can be generated for dew point >68F and it wouldn’t seem too out of the ordinary. Or perhaps it’s just my incorrect perception. Would be interested to see it.

Here's 68F and 72F. It's even more stark at 72F.

Wild...extra impressive considering I don't think there were many at all in June. Just a barrage in July/Aug

80F SSTs on the Sound can't help.

Very very cool. And my perception stands. Otherwise I would have blamed it on that subzero temperature we had at end of 2017...

I guess you could say the number of humid days has been on the high side... but the number of *very* humid days is sky high. Way out of the norm.

I asked another local meteorologist a couple weeks ago if dew point/humidity was tracked the way days above 90 are. They said no. Obviously, I didn’t ask the right meteorologist then. Thank you!! Now. When will the humidity leave for good is the big question?? 🤔

The Northeast Atlantic being way above normal in temperature this year, is certainly having an affect on us....

Right? I actually posted the last month of water temperatures in New Haven harbor. Has been >80F most of the time. Incredibly warm for the Sound.

Thanks for referencing my plots, there is also autoplot 93, which tells a similar story.
