This is scary ... partner and I will be visiting the SW USA in August .... basically Yellowstone, Flagstaff, Las Vegas, LA and San Francisco. Bad timing I know* but it is out of our control. So what temps can we expect?

* Total Solar Eclipse anyone?

Yellowstone and San Francisco are not in the SW. Yellowstone is at a higher elevation and should be warm but pleasant and maybe a little cool in the evening. San Francisco has a moderate climate.

Vegas will be beastly.

PS: It sounds like an awesome trip, though. Some wonderful places.

That's true even when it's relatively chilly there.

(I hate that place.)

We moved to Fredericton, New Brunswick a year ago and discovered that temperatures over 30°C (86°F) are not uncommon - and with humidity levels pushing the feel of the temperature up towards the mid/high 30s. As many Shipmates know, my comfort zone doesn't really extend much above about 20°. [Eek!]

Thankfully, our new house has two heat-exchanger units, which administer coolness in a very efficient way (and they're not bad at keeping it warm when the outside temperature's -20° either).

It's always annoying when the locals assure you, "Oh, it's never like this." This being nearly 100 degrees. If it's never like this, WHAT IS IT DOING NOW?

My normal technique is to have all the windows open, especially upstairs to establish a current drawn in from below at the back in the shade. Also all the blinds and curtains closed on the sunny side.

Differences of opinion arise with people who think the correct process is to have all the windows closed and the blinds open on the sunny side, which I lose.
