Tag Archives: hundred degree days

The heat is on

In  the forecast, anyhow. It’s August. July’s cool and rain is over. One of the coolest and wettest ever. It was pretty nice.

Time to whack us with triple-digit heat. So hundred-degree days are forecast thru Wednesday. Ninety-nines on Thursday and Friday. Yech.

Sez my old meteorologist buddy Bob Rose at the LCRA: “the center of the high pressure ridge is now located over eastern Texas. This means the most stable atmosphere and the hottest temperatures have shifted to Texas and the Lower Mississippi Valley.”

Coolest July in a while

Strictly unscientific. No statistics herein to prove it. But July is almost over and we have yet to hit a hundred degrees. Usually, well, the last few years, we’d have done that by now. Still time, of course, but so far it hovers in the low nineties.
