This morning temperatures only dropped to a low of 84 degrees, and maybe more amazingly the coolest the heat index dropped to was 97!

This ties for the all-time hottest morning!  84 is the warmest low temperature on record which occured on August 19th, 1936. 

This morning's sweltering temperature blew past today's record warm low temperature which was 80 degrees, set way back in 1881. 

So, if you've never felt a morning this hot, you're probably right!  Since it's only happened one other time, a long time ago!

Take care in the high heat.  Once again we've got Excessive Heat Warnings with the heat index up to 105-115.  A little "relief" arrives tomorrow as a weak front moves south and highs drop to the upper 80s and lower 90s, with lower humidity as well!
