Several of my blog posts the past several days have focused on the record heat this month in North Carolina. While it has been hot here, there are other areas of the country where it has been even hotter. Just yesterday Phoenix set a new record for the number of days in a summer with temperatures over 110. For 29 days this season, Phoenix has hit a high temperature of 110 or higher! Some folks may say that's a "dry heat," but I say dry or not -- 110 is very hot! Phoenix is looking for a cooler 108 for a high today.
Around here, look for the low 90s to round out the work week today and tomorrow, but we can look forward to the mid to upper 80s for the Labor Day weekend!
