Record Heat

Everything is bigger in Texas...apparently it's hotter too.   On Tuesday, September 13th Dallas, Texas recorded a record high of 107°.

  

What's even more amazing about this is the number 70, as in the number of times Dallas has reached 100° or warmer this year.  This sets the record for the most 100° degree days ever recorded in a year for the city surpassing 1980 (69 days)



How would that compare to Toledo?  We recorded 100° only once -- thankfully so -- this year.  That was on July 21st when the mercury soared to 102°.
