Well, this sweltering summer continues. Looks like, in the Midwest this weekend it's going ot be the hottest weekend of the year. 103 in Kansas City, 103 Sunday in Des Moines, even Chicago over 100 on Sunday. We're supposed to get between 95-100 on Sunday and Monday.
Anyone seeing the century mark? Last time we saw it here in Greater Cleveland was in '88, when we topped 100 degrees 3 times in that God-awfully hot summer. We had almost 50 days above 90 that year-most above 95.

Right now we're at a pleasant 92F... but 44% humidit (that's rather high for Phoenix).... we've broken 100 pretty consistently. Broken 110 a few times too. Last week one night I was driving home from work about 11pm and it was 110 degrees.

Like I said, we don't break 100 often here. Having one of the Great Lakes nearby moderates things most of the time.
The summer of '88, we set the all-time record high of 104 for here, and it hit 100 twice more that summer. To my knowledge, it hasn't gotten back to triple digits since. We may have a shot at that tomorrow and, more likely, monday.

Get the cheese out... Whine Alert!!!
I was at 'Wet and Wild' with the family this morning. Got there @ 0930, put on SPF 50 Baby faces, and by 1030, we needed another batch (skin was already burning). The water was pee warm (go figure) and there was barely 1.5 hours from the first decent clouds, to a TCU evacuating/clearing the place out @13:30.

Its been hot here in SoCal too. Yesterday it went to 105F. The heat isn't unexpected but what is right now is the high humidity. It's been unusually humid in Southern California for the last week or so, which is irritating people more than the heat itself.

FYI the Heat Index is over 10 degrees warmer here then the Heat Index in MSY. And how about you try living in this then having to live in the winter where there are days where it literally doesn't reach zero for a high.

97 here in Dallas. 40% humidity, dewpoint of 65. Heat advisory (what a surprise). Should be in effect until mid-September. Forecast for Dallas for the next couple months: highs >95, lows 75-85, partly cloudy with a 20% chance of afternoon hail storms.
ps - I agree with ConcordeBoy. Try living in New Orleans, the only thing harder to bear is living in Houston.
