    • North Texas. Our summer moved in on us a month early (May). I hiked 8 miles on Sunday July 1. I started around 9:30 and it was already 85. I finished at 12:15. It was 91 with a "real feel" of 101.

      it hit 101 later that day.....it did it again today, July 2, 2018. I think the "real feel" was like 107.
      Good chance North TX will be above our average number of 100 degree days.

      Look at the bright (cooler) side. It is probably hotter and more humid in Houston. :D

      Checking the long range forecast for the Hotter n Hell 100 in Wichita Falls in August, appears the riders will experience the usual weather...hot and hotter.

      Lest we forget.....

    • Most of Texas, OK, Arkansas, NM are now getting hammered (Mid July, 2018). 108 yesterday in DFW. It was still around 100 at 9 PM when I left the gym. Want to know how to instantly dry your sweaty clothes after a workout? Walk outside.....
      By Saturday and Sunday, they are talking 110 actual temp here. Predicting about 4 straight days of record setting heat.

      rhjanes, please note that like is for the quality of the information, not the actual message. Going to be sitting through some hot ball games this weekend. But at least I am just sitting and not actually having to perform on the field to impress college coaches. :)

      I've emptied our rain gauge so many times I've lost track of how many inches we've gotten. I think my onions have drowned and rotted and my tomatoes are exploding from too much water.
      Definitely no drought for you.

      You always hear about farmers praying for rain. But I guess in this case it could have been spread around a little better.

    • I went for a hike yesterday out in the forest. Got my 8 miles in. It was around 82 degrees at my 9 AM start. Around 94 with a "feels like" of 100 when I finished. Drank almost 3 liters of H2O while hiking. I felt better for drinking a liter more than my regular hike-in-this-heat.
      What was sad was the trail littered in dried up leaves. The heat and lack of rain has some of the trees giving up, dropping leaves.

      My rain gauge is an empty trash can in my driveway. Over 11" of rain has collected inside the can since last Saturday. Central PA is wet.
      Trudgin' along the AT since 2003. Completed Sections: Springer Mountain to Winding Stair Gap NC, Max Patch to Franconia Notch NH and the Gale River Trail to Crawford Notch NH.

      Sounds like an ultra-lite hiker applying the multi-use principle in real life around the house. :D

    • While not the excessive heat that some of you have shared, here in my part of Idaho we set a record for the most consecutive days of 90+ degree weather and there's no end in sight. We haven't had any measurable rain in well over a month and that doesn't look to be changing either. Fires everywhere. It's gross.
