Approaching the 1980 Record
Today will be Day 38 in the long run of 100-degree-plus days. The record set in 1980 is 42 days.
KRLD’s Krista Villarreal tells Gene & Julie if we will break the record this week.
We are now in the hottest part of the summer. Last week was the hottest we have seen so far. Our overnight temps are setting all kinds of records. We are just not cooling off at night. Friday is the day we will tie the 1980 record, and Saturday will the record-breaker.
How hot is it? One listener reports that there’s not enough oxygen in his super-hot attic to keep the pilot light on his water heat lit.
