It is 1:00AM and the temperature currently in Minneapolis is 85 degrees Fahrenheit (at MSP airport) and 78 degrees in Chicago (at O’Hare airport). Besides going into the basement, what would you do to help fall asleep on such a warm night?
I would have turned on the A/C, set to 70, long before the outside air temperature got up to 70.
Run the ac until bed time. Shut off the ac (makes too much noise) and put a box fan on low (quiet) setting at foot of bed. Works for me.

It’s 4am here and at 78 degrees. I just keep my ac set to 70 at night. Problem solved.
Turn on a ceiling fan or sleep naked.
Take a cold shower, towel off then immediately hit the sack.
As you warm up, you should fall asleep.
Just make sure you feel really cold after the shower, if necessary, stand in front of a fan while still wet.
Thanks for this. I will give that a try.
Actually, a warm shower washes away the rime of sweat and makes the air seem cooler.
The air conditioning in the house is not helping much at all.
If it’s humid I’d require the AC. If not I’d probably be ok with the overhead and window fans on.
