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°.
