Yesterday after dinner, in anticipation of nice overnight temperatures, we turned off the air conditioner and opened up the house. Based on the hourly forecast it looked like there would be several hours today that would be stuffy, but then rain would be coming in mid-afternoon to cool things off.
Once again the forecast wasn't exactly what happened. Fortunately, the temperatures never made it up to last week's sweltering mid-90s, but the predicted 84 turned into an actual 88 and there was enough humidity in the air that everything in the house felt sticky. Now I notice the rain isn't predicted to show up until the middle of the night.
The good news (at least at this minute) is that it's supposed to be cooler tomorrow and even nicer over the weekend. We may really be able to say goodbye to the hot weather.
