Hot...Hot......HOT!

Sun Jul 24, 2005 2:37 am

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.

Hope everyone is keeping cool, and well-hydrated.

No breeze here right now, dude. Looking out the front door from here, the wind is nil. Granted, today is a nice day-only 82 right now, but with no breeze, it's still hot out there.

Can't imagine what tomorrow and monday will feel like. At least tomorrow is my one day off every week.  Big grin

Reno Nevada set a couple of heat records.

  • Ten consecutive days above 100oF.

  • Four consecutive nights above 70oF.


  • One thing we long-time residents have always liked is that Reno cools down at night. Not anymore, says Desert Research Institute. Reno is urban enough to have a heat bubble now.

    Of course it is still fairly cool at nights up where I live, six hundred feet above the town, and outside the valley.

    We can console ourselves by looking at Las Vegas temperatures. 110oF+ for many days, and Laughlin, down on the Colorado River hit 124oF

    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.

    60 is perfect! Too damn hot in BOS right now, although it's a bit cooler now than it has been. Lucky me, I'm travelling to DC Mon-Weds, and upper 90s-100 are predicted.  flamed

    LAS VEGAS - When it's 117 degrees, the beads of sweat feel as big as golf balls, and gamblers still want their cars parked. Casino valet attendants have only one hope: Pray for a Cadillac.

    "Cadillacs are awesome. The Cadillac A/C just fires right up," Tommy Clements said as he shuttled cars at Boulder Station hotel-casino.

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20050723/ap_on_re_us/heat_coping
    ===

    Advertising like that is hard to come by (not only for Caddy).

    The other day it was 122 degrees in Bullhead City.

    I got an email last week from my brother in Afghanistan. He said it was 110+.

    I tend to think his accommodations are less posh than mine.  Wink

    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.

    Since the 100F mark is completely arbitrary, like all temperature scales, why not just define your own temperature system so you'd hit 100 degrees more often? Big grin

    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.

    Heat waves are nothing new, but one has to wonder about how 'global warming' is part of the increasing frequency and intensity of them throughout the world over the recent years. Heat waves over the world have killed thousands each year and deadly heat waves must be increasly dealt with.
    Over the last twenty years in the USA, we have had some of the most deadly weather related events not from hurricanes or tornados, but from heat. Several years ago, there were something like 600 additional deaths from a extended heat wave in Chicago and over 400 in Phildelphia in another heat wave there. Hundreds died throughout Europe in the 2003 heat waves. The main victims were the elderly and poor whom could not afford air conditioning and live in sealed up homes or apartments due to crime fears. Since those events and in other cities where heat waves killed large numbers of people, they now offer public 'cooling places' with air conditioning, offer free fans, educate people of heat risks and signs of health problems from heat and to have high risk people watched by others to make sure they are ok. Of course, our soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan are at huge heat risks, compounded by the need to wear heavy flak jackets and stay locked up tight in protective vehicles due the the 'heat' of the insurgants.
    I would rather see heat be a lead news story than terrorism though.

    it got up to 106 today in Muscatine Iowa (just west of the Quad Cities on the Iowa-Illinois border). It's the hottest it's been since 1995...and i remember that summer. My parents had no money so we couldn't ever run the air.....it sucked. thankfully the business is booming now!
