Humidity season descends

You know it's hot in Naples ...

When nighttime temperatures stay in the 80s.

Calendar chart showing history of nighttime lows in Naples, FL.  Do you see the black dots?  They're the nights that it stayed in the 80s from dusk to dawn.  We had 16 of those last summer; none yet this summer so far.

Not that you notice it,

Because usually when it occurs you're asleep in the AC.

But you know it the next morning when you walk out the door.

No rain cloud to be dodged or reprieve in the shade,

South Florida's smothering humidity is hard to escape.

What an interesting long-term trend! Mid 1900s and early 2000s are warmer than the later 1900s.

Do you know if the observation site for this was ever moved locations or is this long-term climate patterns? Looking at XM-ACIS observation page...the "Naples, FL" site (not the airport) seems to be the data you pulled and it matches up...

Just curious!
