        12.26 is probably closer than 2.40-2.41 jumps.

          Huh? Accuweather in the Sacramento Bee said it was under 70 and raining, with continued sub-70 for the next couple of days. It's been cool and rainy lately.

          Weather underground for Moscow:

            By the way, if you use older, traditional 'norms' for Moscow you will get cooler weather than if you use more recent history. The July/August highs and lows are more than one degree C, almost 2.5 degrees F above the norms taking the last 12 years. However, since even the warmer temps have lows in the mid-50s, typical weather should not be humid by eastern US standards (and especially south/southeast standards).

            This is in general agreement with what we see in the Upper Midwest, where it is already several degrees warmer than the 'norms', although most of this is the result of warmer overnight temperatures during the heating season (but summers have been systematically warmer with one notable exception several years ago.
