Around MKE it surpassed triple digits today and yesterday for the first time since 1995, and I don't know about you guys but I love it! It made for a great 4th of July yesterday. Its still supposed to be in the mid-90s tomorrow before things start to cool off on Saturday. So do you guys enjoy the heat? Or do you need me to repeat the question because you were too busy melting? 


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

We're not exactly icicles up here in Minneapolis either.   

I'm not crazy about it, as it has resulted in shirtlessness by numerous unqualified specimens.

However, we're better off here than those in the mid-Atlantic, who had to go through this without power - and forget air conditioning, the poor folks couldn't even just switch on a fan!!

I read that the high tomorrow should be 90°F, which is low compared to the temps we've been having.

The cooler things get, the more we start seeing shirtlessness confined to us studs.

Chicago welcomes you. We've had triple digit temperatures and heat indices for the past week. I'm fine with the heat until I have go outside in a shirt and tie. Then I'm a bit grumpy.

Friends of mine just outside Chicago went without it for several days, too. They were less-than-pleased.

Up here in the Great White North as well. Sweltering for over a week, tomorrow in Ottawa heat index should be well into 00's (F), Toronto warning against as much as 115. Was in Winnipeg last week -- same.

But not related to global warming, of course. Just an aberration.

I want to be where you are. 93F in NYC today, and that's about 13 degrees hotter than should be allowed.

Hey, no need to get personal - as I resemble that description. The kids at the subdivision pool say "Look out for the white whale" when I jump in.

If you like that kind of weather, come on down to visit us in Dallas in a couple weeks.

St. Louis has been really hot too, but the humidity has been low so it's actually not felt that bad. Like being in Phoenix.

Chicago...where it's never too hot for a murder.

I was watching the White Sox game last night and the commentators remarked about the fireworks going off. I kept on thinking "I'm not sure those are fireworks." (To be fair, the area around the Cell has gotten much nicer and isn't a bad place to be after dark)

I love the heat! Not in that I have a preference towards hot weather, but rather that I just hate the cold that much. This of course being a big problem considering I live in Canada...

To be honest, I could probably deal with this heat on a consistent basis. The only time it becomes a bother is when I've got my football helmet on. It gets pretty uncomfortable in there during practices and games.

Sounds about right. I don't know where you live connie, but with the humidex factored in it's been getting up into the mid-40's down here in Kitchener-Waterloo.

All of these artificial numbers where people (news people) talk about how hot it is and throw numbers out that are including factors such as humidity really irk me. Tell us what the temperature is. Tell us what the relative humidity is. If you want to include a "feels like" sort of number, do it as a footnote (like windchill). Otherwise people come onto internet forums talking about how it's been over 100 for 10 days in a row (or whatever), when really it only broke 100 once! I know it feels worse and is more dangerous when it's more humid but this has to stop!

I was down in eastern Kansas on the weekend and boy was it hot. High 30s/40 celicius the whole time we were there. I had never experienced heat that like in my life (fortunately it was not humid). In Toronto we've been getting some low/mid 30 degree days this summer but it was nothing compared to the big 4-0!

It's not the heat, it's the damn humidity. Really, if you are East of the Rockies the humidity becomes a factor. The heat has been excessive. I can do without the tripple digits. Ideal summer weather are highs between 75 and 90 with humidity under 35 %. And lows at night below 65 F. This would cut down on the A/C bill. Of course one nice thing about summer, the girls are wearing less clothing. Especially working at the airport, the honey's like to bear all. There are even "prostitots' running around wearing skimpy Daisy Duke Shorts showing cheek and wearing stuff that features "Love Pink" and Juicy. That young teen meat that can get you beat. It's look but don't touch.

Down here in Nashville it's been 100+ everyday since last Thursday. Records have been set every day for a week including last Friday where the hottest day since records were kept at 109.

The worst thing is - it's a sweaty, muggy 65F. I'm not used to anything above 55F or so. 

Last night was a horrible night - because the UK only gets properly warm weather (for us anyway) for a few weeks a year, no houses have AC so the window open and a fan on will have to do.

This summers weather makes me glad I left Atlanta, those temps are bad enough without the humidity much less with a lot of it. The prairies are a balmy mid 70s on a pretty consistent basis - I love it!

I live in Winnipeg. Unfortunately, right now I have to sleep in Pembroke. Dullest and most retarded place in the world. I only realised that after moving here. Hopefully within a few weeks back in the Peg.

I'm headed north for Sox vs. Blue Jays on Saturday, unfortunately still supposed to pretty hot. Romero vs. Floyd could make for a long afternoon in the heat. For everyone's benefit, I will be wearing a jersey and NOT going shirtless.

One of these days I need to move to Alaska. That's the weather I like.

Makes me glad I left Chicago for Seattle - although we did have to put up with "Juneuary" last month.
Been in the low to mid 70's while Chicago bakes. I don't miss it.
Funny thing is they are talking "heat wave" here by Sunday and Monday, mid 80's. It's all relative I guess.

Hi!

I was looking at the Ohare website last night and there looked like quite a few diversions due to thunderstorms. Doesn't it have to be pretty bad when you can't hold and wait for a thunderstorm to pass but have to divert? (I'm strictly an Fs pilot!)

Correct. Only when it's cold is it proof that there is no GW. When it's breaking heat records, that is just an aberration. Glad we're all clear.

I believed that until I actually went to Phoenix in the middle of August. I don't care how humid it may not be. 114 is bloody hot. Give me 95 and sticky any day.

You beat me to it. St. Louis' homicide and aggravated assault rates are more than double Chicago's. That still doesn't mean I'd want to walk around Englewood, Marquette Park or Austin after dark...
