I'll let you fill in the blank in the comment section. Keep it clean and have fun. Last week I tweeted, "It's so hot, two trees are fighting over a dog. It's so hot, water is sweating. And it's so hot, Gatorade is thirsty." Be creative!
We are entering mid August and if it ended today, it would be the hottest August on record by average temperature, average high temperature, and average low temperature. Concerning the entire summer, we are the hottest on record by average temperature... 86.01 degrees... easily outpacing the summers of 1954 and 1980.
Yes, there is a cool front which should affect the state by the end of the weekend. I think it will be slow moving through as they usually are this time of the year, but at least there's hope . We might be able to get readings back to average.
And speaking of average temperature, it's beginning to decrease now. Not by much, but according to climatology, our heat has peaked. Our daylight time is also declining. We'll lose 57 minutes of sunlight between the first of the month and the 31st.
Stay cool and safe.
