# West Texas weather

• posted on May 28, 2011, 12:07 am
Temperature 102.2 F Relative humidity 7% Dew Point 24.8 F Pressure 1005.64 hPa Wind West - Southwest / 12.7 mph
This weather applet says it feels like 95.0 F, but to me it feels more like 110 F. It's scorching hot today. We live in a sauna.
Come to West Texas and vacation in the great southwest before it completely dries up and burns away.

What is F and mph and hPa? Never heard of those numbers. Your post doesn't make any sense.

F is Fahrenheit mph is miles per hour 1 Atm. = 101,325 Pascals
1 Atm. = 1,013.25 hecto Pascals
100 Pascals (a hecto Pascale) = 1 millibar
The Pascal as the SI unit of pressure, meteorologists chose the hectopascal as the international unit for measuring atmospheric pressure. (1 hPa = 100 Pascals = 1 mb.) The millibar is still often used in weather reports and forecasts for the public, but the term hectopascal is increasingly being used, especially on the Continent in general and France, in particular. After all, Pascal was a Frenchman!. For those with old instruments, conversion scales from mb/hPa to inches and millimetres of mercury will be found in almanacs eg Macmillans Reeds. The distribution of pressure is vital information for the meteorologist who needs pressure readings taken at the same time in many different places. For consistency, readings are adjusted to a datum of mean sea level to take account of the reduced pressure at places above sea level (1 hPa at or near sea level equals approximately 7.5 metres or 25 feet in height).

I think we are dealing with one of those fact based elitists.

You, me or him? Billy do you even know what elitist means? and how does that apply to the post about weather.

Not being impertinent, using full sentences, and punctuation still count ;O)
The weather blows.

In newsgroups, it is an invective used against someone who pushes your conceited opinions out of the way by using facts. The more obscure the fact, the greater the elitist.
I can see now that my concern was a false alarm.
When I want to know the meaning of a word, I use an "app" or a book called a dictionary.
IIRC the last time I used one was when Kay Lancaster hit me with the word "depauperate".

It makes sense. F for Fahrenheit and C for Celsius. As for hPa. http://science-edu.larc.nasa.gov/SCOOL/pressunit.html
Rain again in Michigan today. Warming trend for next week that is going to in the Eighties... Great weather is now around the corner. Good weather for Boating on Lake Huron.

You see? This is a perfect example of a "fact based elitist"?

When I designated Fahrenheit it was so no one would confuse the temperature for being Celsius. That would be hot indeed. As confused as he got with F, if I hadn't put it there he would have been asking, 102 what? 102 dogs barking in the park?? 102 birds flying in the air??? 102 bees buzzing in the trees???? 102 what?????
Anyone who can't figure out F = Fahrenheit when talking about degrees, can't possibly use their brain very much. Are you defending him because he be your daft nephew or cousin?
If it be, unctuous conceit borders on narcissism, so be it.

Our last freeze was May, 1st. It stunted the Hummingbird Trumpet Vines and Russian Mulberry. If the winds ever die down enough it will be time to put out the banana trees. Our nighttime temperatures have been in the 70's. I found the first little zucchini yesterday.
It only got to 102 today. Local news predicts chance of rain starting next Wednesday.
