Austin Heat - Not as Bad as Death Valley - 04/08/14

Its too hot! Wheres your 'deal' with Mother Nature?...No more triple digits!  I hear that every day.  So, maybe we need to put our weather into perspective.

First of Triple Digits for Austin
We started by hitting 101 at Camp Mabry (Our official recording spot for Austin) on June 25.  That was followed by 102 on the 26.
By Saturday, we could tie the record of 106.
Ugh, right?

120 for Death Valley, CA This Week
Lets travel 1400 miles west and a bit north and well run into Death Valley, Furnace Creek, California.
The National Weather Service is forecasting 125-129 degrees each day beginning Friday and into next week.  Hows that A/C workin' now!

Near Record Highs in Death Valley
Those numbers will come very close to the all-time record high set in Death Valley of 134 degrees set on July 10, 1913 which is also the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth.
These hot temps are not all that uncommon.
Death Valley hit a high of 128 just last July.

Hottest Stats in Texas
The hottest temperature ever recorded in Austin was 112 on August 28, 2011.  The hottest temperature ever recorded in Texas is 120 in Seymour on August 12, 1936.

Warm Overnights
Feeling a little bit cooler?  No?  How bout thisWhile well cool into the 70s at night, Death Valley will stay in the triple digits overnight this weekend, never dropping below 100 degrees!
