A cold front has swept the Labor Day weekend’s humidity away. This morning’s dew points in the high 60s have plummeted into the mid-50s, so much better. A refreshing evening awaits, followed by a comfortably warm Wednesday.

South Pole’s warmest August: Wunderground’s weather historian Christopher Burt reports: “This past August was the warmest such on record at the South Pole’s Amundsen-Scott Station. The temperature averaged -53.3°C (-63.9°F) breaking the previous record of -53.5°C (-64.3°F) set in August 1996. The departure from normal was +6.3°C (+11.3°F).” Records extend back to 1958 at that Antarctic weather station.
