Summer contest numbers updated as of Sunday, August 25th: 7764 Degrees
We thought summer was in our rear view mirror, but Mother Nature is reminding us that it's still August.
During the winter, I often talk about the 3 ingredients needed for single digit lows. There are also 3 ingredients for triple digit heat:
- A dry ground,
- A strong ridge of high pressure
So far we have only had 2 days of 100 degree + temperatures officially in Little Rock. There's a good chance we'll add to that by the middle to end of this week as temperatures should get very, very close. If the heat index goes to 105 or higher, heat advisories may be required so keep that in mind later this week as well.
|100 degree days over the past 4 years. We may add to this years total later in the week. It will be close!|
