Interesting. Makes more sense to me too but, Env. Canada says this:

The humidex is an index (a computed value as opposed to something measured) devised to describe how hot or humid weather feels to the average person. The humidex combines the temperature and humidity into one number to reflect the perceived temperature. It takes into account these two important factors that affect summer comfort. It is therefore a better measure of how stifling the air feels than either temperature or humidity alone. A humidex of 40 with, for example, a temperature of 30 degrees means that the sensation of heat when it is 30 degrees and the air is humid is more or less the same as when it is 40 degrees and the air is dry. We must be careful not to depend on this interpretation alone: it is a mere indication of physiological reactions, not an absolute measure.

Go figure. Any way you slice it--it's hot here 92 degrees actual air temp.

Huh, I learned something from this. I learned that you can type "define:word" (replace "word" with the word you seek) in the Google search and get a listing of websites that define that word. I also learned that this does not work in Yahoo search.

Currently in my little piece of the world:

Partly Cloudy

Temp: 95°F
Dewpoint: 75°F
Heat Index: 107°F
Visibility: 10.00 mi.

The heat is one thing, but the moisture is the killer. I walked out to my car this afternoon (which had to sit out, normally it doesn't) and started sweating the second I left my 73 degrees of central air comfort. It's miserable. Add to that hot leather in the car, and I was not a happy camper!

I hear you, Eric. My buddy works in a factory up north cutting with plasma and welding with tungsten all day. That's hot work.

This summer has not been as hot & humid as last summer. Last summer was humid with no relief in sight for WEEKS. My apartment (no AC) was unbearable...this year, there's only been one day or two that was too much.

'Ya know...it's HOT here in Chicago too. It's only gonna get worse over the next two days.



Situational awareness...as a medically-retired airline pilot.

I think about an old friend...we go back a LONG WAY.

He's a Reservist... 40 years old and in Baghdad.

Yesterday, it was 112 degrees, witn a viz of 6 miles, so you KNOW the air quality is horrible.

Can you imagine...dressed to the "nines", with your finger on the trigger, no place for relief, crappy air, and scared to death?

He laughs and tells me that he was on the bike (No, not Motorcycle) a little while ago, and his situation is MUCH BETTER now.


Keep 'yo head DOWN.

What is HOT??

You guys don't know what hot is unless you've lived in the deep south where the humidity is frequently 90%++ and the temp is usually in the mid to upper 90's on the average summer day. I've been out west where at least your sweat evaporates to cool you a little bit. Down south, NOTHING evaporates on your body. Summer can be quite rough in south La.

took this photo this afternoon in West Haven, CT Dew Point in the 70's actual temp 101 with heat index 109. On top of that these poor people had no power for 2 days. Glad mine was on. The City had cooling centers but no way for some people to get there. Tomorrow is supposed to be worse. We're staying cool right now, but if the power goes out, we're gonna fry like eggs. BTW U.I. is United Illuminating is the local power co.
