that's what I thought, and if it's going to rain here is well be a hot muggy mess. Our rainy time is in the summer, Normally we are only breaking the 80's right now but this year we are already well in to the 90's some days. I wanna keep the rain off of is goofy butt but I don't wanna give him a heat stroke either, that was a big concern for me when it came to using the rain blankets and how to figure which would be the best for use when it gets so hot out

Once his winter coat is gone, you shouldn't have many problems, as long as you groom him every day. I don't think the rain sheet would be much help to you if it is that humid, as humidity is almost as bad as rain.

I hope you find a solution, though.
