"Good lord" - What I said when I checked the weather forecast...

And that's coming from someone who has lived in Phoenix for 20 years.



I cannot honestly remember the last time it was 119. 115 a few times during a summer is not unheard of but 119 is getting a bit excessive.

"Although Phoenix residents may feel that their city MUST be the hottest place around at times, top honors go to Lake Havasu City, where the mercury climbed to 128° on June 29, 1994. This bests the Phoenix mark of 122°, set on June 26, 1990"

30. Phoenix is the only place I can remember where the soles of my feet got so hot

that I had to step into the shade. And that was wearing shoes and socks. I used to live in Fort Lauderdale, but the heat down there is nothing compared to Phoenix.

We're supposed to hit 100 today in Tulsa, hottest day of the year so far, and we have high humidity on top of that so it's no picnic here, either.

Stay inside and be careful if you go out for very long.

it was 99 here an hour ago. Swamper will be struggling to keep it below 88 or so. I will be guzzling iced tea, watching videos and cranking on the computer. I will not put forth any real effort for anything. I hope roofers and the like have already gone home.

63. Tarmac melting or tires melting because of weight distribution friction

When a plane takes off or lands, it produces heat friction on the tires it sits on, depending on the weight of the aircraft and the outside temperature.......the calculation of weight distribution of an aircraft and the heat buildup on the tarmac is only good to 118 degrees.......so it's not a matter of whether a plane will get stuck on the tarmac.......it's just that the guidelines for it happening are only calculated to 118 degrees..........the airport has to do any other calculations by hand.......so they close takeoffs/landings at the airport just to be safe.

69. My guess is that the tarmac becomes excessively pliable at such high temperatures.

And could lead to instability at take off and landing speeds.

65. Heat Wave May Threaten World’s Hottest Temp. Record

Reported by an article on Climate Central Heat Wave May Threaten World’s Hottest Temp. Record:

A brutal and potentially historic heat wave is in store for the West as parts of Nevada, Arizona and California may get dangerously hot temperatures starting Thursday and lasting through next week. In fact, by the end of the heat wave, we may see a record tied or broken for the hottest temperature ever recorded on Earth.



Heat statistics for Las Vegas, Bishop and Death Valley, Calif.
Credit: NWS


All-time records are likely to be threatened in normally hot places — including Death Valley, Calif., which holds the record for the highest reliably recorded air temperature on Earth at 134°F. That mark was set on July 10, 1913, and with forecast highs between 126°F to 129°F this weekend, that record could be threatened. The last time Death Valley recorded a temperature at or above 130°F was in 1913.

Las Vegas and Phoenix, two cities well-known for their hot and dry summers, are also predicted to approach record territory. Last Vegas’ all-time high temperature record is 117°F and Phoenix’s high is 122°F. Excessive heat warnings are in effect in both cities from Friday through Monday.


The Southwest is not the only area of concern:

The heat during the weekend and during the first week in July will also affect inland areas of Southern California, where excessive heat watches and warnings have been issued. The NWS said on Thursday that the strong heat dome may migrate northward through the 4th of July holiday, potentially locking the near-record high temperatures in place for a week or more, raising the risk of wildfires, and bringing a heat wave to places like Portland and Seattle.


Current forecast for western Oregon right now is a high of 96 on Tuesday, dropping into mid-80's by the 4th. Sounds like there's a chance of temperatures warmer than those predictions.

68. Can you move? I'm considering moving when I semi-retire, because of the heat.

It's SO hot here in Dallas. Considering moving down to Houston area. That's hot, too, but not as hot as here, and the sun isn't as glaring.

70. I plan on moving for graduate/law school. Which would be next year.

I plan on getting as far away from this political cesspool as humanly possible.

71. I live in Minnesota and when it hits the 80's + humidity I am miserable

I have lived in both dry heat (Vegas) and humid heat (Louisiana) as a kid and that was enough to convince me to stay north. I am one of those who love the cold - I would rather -20 than 90 anyday. I rarely wear a winter coat, just a fleece pullover and I am good.


Its not only the heat down there - but when you live in the city, it doesn't cool off like the desert because the buildings and asphalt trap all that heat. Nasty

Stay cool and hydrated, my friend
