The Dog Day That Will Not End
Over the past 8 days the max temp has averaged 87.7 degrees, the min temp has averaged 69.3 degrees, and the max dew point has averaged 74.2 degrees. The combination of each data point creates a hot and sticky situation. I like to define these types of days as "dog days". If our max temp exceeds 80 and our min temp stays above 65 on any given day, that day qualifies as a "dog day". We are well on our way to be competing with the numbers of last summer.

On a side note, since 1893, Oshkosh has endured streaks of 25+ days where the maximum temperature was 80+ degrees 8 times; 1908, 1919, 1921, 1930, 1963, 1966, 1983, and 1988. The longest streak took place in 1921, Jun 16 thru Jul 31, a whopping 46 days. During that period the average max temp was 90.7 and the average min temp was 66.5. It's average was a "dog day" by definition. Talk about hot.

We are deep into summer now. I hope the hundreds of thousands of folks that visit the EAA this coming week find ways to stay cool.
