Nicer than New York too - especially since its fairly humid here right now.

Must have rained last night there? 43% humidity is a lot for the Playa isn't it?

I'm loving Bob's post above- it always has the "Now" weather, no matter when you enter this thread.

Looks like 90 yesterday. Not too unbearable, even if I have to leave my fogged in haven to get there...

It depends on the time of day.

Weather School...
As air temperature changes, so does its ability to hold moisture.
Cold air can hold less moisture, so as temperatures drop in the evening, the air becomes more saturated (humid) even though the actual amount of water in the air stays the same.

Here are some graphs (they are live) from my backyard (high desert ~120 miles away). It's dry here. No major systems moved through in the last few days but you'll see that the the humidity (bottom graph) is all over the place. Notice how it corrolates with the temp graph.

The outdoor humidity sensor has been busted since at least last year.
I'll have a station on the playa again this year.

LOL!
Or better yet, "When the Sun comes up its gonna start to get hot. After sunset the temperature will drop"

Either way, Your down the street. We're the Gnome Dome at 3:30 and G.
We'll have a big red dome with white spots, like a mushroom cap.

I like how from 7am to 11am, the temperature bumps up 5-degrees every hour. Interesting.

It's rained in Reno the last few afternoons. From the looks of the radar, it looks like the playa may be getting some now (Jul31 afternoon).

Golden Spike coming up- I hope they don't need to use a boat!

I'm curious how the nightime temps this summer are comparing to last years pre-TTITD. Seems pretty warm at night? We could be having some pretty warm night temps this year I'm thinking?

Gerlach weather is just a close rule to look at..
