Good weather? Bad weather? Someone help me with this

I spoke to Kaz in Tokyo today (ironically, I was having lunch with his former boss at that time) and he told me to expect good weather on my return to Japan.

Naturally, I was quite excited about that. Until I saw this article, which highlights the fact that temperatures have reached 30 degrees for the first time this year.

It also says that next week will be hot and muggy. There is a term for this in Japanese, "mushi atsui", which basically means "miserably humid". Japanese like this weather...it is good for the skin etc., but i cannot stand humidity and that means next weeks' weather is going to be wonderful for a significant majority of people, but terrible for me. Thank God for air conditioning.
