The Heat Wave Continues

The 2010 Heat Wave is putting up some pretty staggering numbers...

Here are a few statistics to look at.

  • 19 out of 20 days in August have been 90 degrees or higher at the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport. Cape Girardeau is running 4.2 degrees above normal per day.
  • Poplar Bluff, Missouri has been 90 degrees or higher 24 days in a row and 36 out of last 38 days. For August, Poplar Bluff is 4.6 degrees above normal per day.
  • 18 days this month have been 90 degrees or higher in Carbondale, Illinois. Carbondale is running 6.5 degrees above normal per day.
  • 37 of the last 38 days have been 90 degrees or higher in Paducah, Kentucky. It has been 6.8 degrees above normal per day in August.
I am looking over weather data for the next week and it appears that we could see temperatures in the middle 80's by Wednesday. Keep your fingers crossed if you are tired of the heat.
