It's So Hot...

CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION ON "BEAT THE HEAT... CHECK THE BACKSEAT."
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.
Data is through August 12th and is from the National Weather Service

Todd-

It's so hot that there are no cool or cold fronts right now. They are now called less hot fronts.

It's so hot that local chicken farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard-boiled eggs.

I still like "It's so hot outside the birds are having to use potholders to pull worms out of the ground."
