120 degree High Heat Index Today

As I write this at 5:05 pm, the weather station indicates we just reached a heat index of 120 F, the highest for the year, surpassing yesterday’s high heat index.

If you have any heart condition or physical problems this is a good time to rest, relax and drink water. If you’re a member of the Tercer Edad, double down on this advice.

People in the know call these readings “dangerously high” for a reason!

June Sets Records

Here in our little slice of the Riviera Nayarit, the San Pancho Weather Station recorded several notable readings.

12 inches of rain, matching the record set in 2008

17 days in the month with rain, the most on record for any June

94 F record high for 2014 and record high for any June on record

83 F highest average temperature for 2014 and for any June on record

114 F highest for 2014, any June on record, ties 114 of August 2010

We could be on our way to an annual record rainfall amount, though it would be hard to beat the 56 inches of 2010. The average July rainfall is around 7 inches. The most rain in July was in 2011 when  we enjoyed more than 13 inches.

Keep the umbrellas handy!
