Today in DC the moment you stepped outside it felt like getting slapped in the face with a scalding wet towel. Just brutal. And tomorrow and Saturday will be worse than today.

Well, the heat index in DC tomorrow is about 12 degrees higher than in the Phoenix area. Just saying. 117 is nothing to sneeze at. Plus we're higher than 50% humidity. Child's play it is not.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

My family from south Alabama reguarly experience heat much higher than this, but the difference is that they don't have the high humidity like we always have around here. My friend from College was from Arizona. He said 110 was nothing because it was so dry. Also some nights people would run their fireplaces/heat because it would get so cold at night. Crazy....

50% Humidity?? I would pray for that. You may laugh at us for bitching about the heat, but let a foot of snow fall in Phoenix and lets see how you deal with that. It's all relative.

At the same time, 111 is hot no matter how you cut it.

One of the commentaries I saw was that, although the heat was essentially the same throughout the affected area, the danger was highest in those areas where the temps were high above norms (think S. Dakota at 100 degrees for example).

No matter how you cut it. It's f'ing hot. Right now, it's 7:00 a.m., 90 degrees, with 65% humidity and a heat index of 101. It's going to be ugly today folks.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

Correction: The humidity at 7:00 for BWI was 80% and at Dulles 90%

It's like swimming in boiling water.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

Heat index of 95 already this morning when I walked out of the house at 7:45. Steamy is an understatement.

At the moment, technically, I think we are being subjected to Global Broiling.

Gotta feel bad for the mothers.


We had a 2-hour power outage last night (8-10pm) because too many people cranked their ACs up.


Today's heat index for this part of PA will be 115.

Just heard D.C. is going to be 117 today!


Just had to listen to some crazy lady say "she's convinced that Al Gore is right and people thought it was a good idea to cut down all of the rain forests".


It's July! We complain about the heat EVERY summer and then the snow in the winter...but have very short memories.

Re: Stifling States of America: Heat Wave!

I've always loved being from DC, and a big part of that is you really get the best (or worst depending on how you look at it) of all four seasons. It's amazing to think- I've seen plenty of days in the winter where we have single digit temperatures. I even remember a few occasions where it was below zero. And today the heat index is 117. Amazing that from winter to summer we have triple digit variances.

It's so freaking gross outside right now.

I was just thinking that! I was like wasn't I just shoveling a ton of snow a few months ago. It is indeed crazy!
