Fun with the record books!

Let's get started with the biggest, most impressive record we'll hit tomorrow...

Tomorrow will make 10 days at or above 97 degrees, with 9 out of 10 of those days at or above 100 degrees.  This will make it the hottest consecutive stretch of weather in our history books!  The previous record 9 days. 

That one day in the middle of our heat wave at 97 degrees stopped us from breaking the record amount of days in a row at 100 or above.

As mentioned above, today is day 8 of 9 at 100 or above, tomorrow will be 9 out of 10.

All days at 100 or above have tied or broken the record high.

With today well above 97, we have hit or broken 8 record highs.

We have also tied or broken some record warm-low temperatures, and have been near the record-warm lows in the upper 70s throughout the heat wave.

So folks, that's how bad it has been.   As bad as the heat wave back in the Dust Bowl era of the 1930s, and the impressive heat waves of the early 1910s.

We'll end our stretch off 100+ days on Sunday, with highs down to the mid 90s.  Then, 80s next week!  Hang in there!
