Tempe's forecast today is "mostly cloudy with temperatures rising to 101 to 105 and the humidity is 35%."
So why do we love to hate the weather?
Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. High humidity makes people feel hotter outside in the summer because it reduces the effectiveness of sweating to cool the body by reducing the evaporation of perspiration from the skin.
In Arizona we complain when the humidity is above 5%.
RAIN is liquid precipitation, as opposed to non-liquid kinds of precipitation such as snow, hail or sleet.
In the Phoenix area we rarely get this, but when we do people run to the windows and watch it, it's reported on the news as the number one story, but if it goes for more than a few minutes we complain about it too.
The Heat, do I really have to say more about the heat?
It's a dry heat, but so is an oven. But despite the fact that we all complain about the summer heat and wish it were over, we still stay here and brag about our wonderful weather in the winter.
How does yarn relate to the weather. Come on I own a yarn store, I know I can do this somehow. Hummmm.
No matter what the weather is outside, yarn is still soft and lovely.
Not bad, okay not great either. Let's talk about the weather.
