Heat wave breaks up, but still toasty

After nearly a solid week of scorching heat, it abates today..., some. Here's what my weather station reported the past few days...

Thu 94.6°F | Fri 96.6°F | Sat 97.8°F | Sun 97.4°F | Mon 99.3°F | Tue 96.2°F

The heat index peak I think was 108°F and easily around 105°F daily. Officially RDU recorded temperatures around 100°F and 101°F. Today? Low 90's and a chance of some showers and thunderstorms and should be like this for awhile. Ozone and pollution down a few notches today too.

Oh, yeah, the 100°F at RDU last Saturday set a new all-time record for the earliest 100°F day in the year.

It does sound like a heatwave.... Marilyn Monroe once sang this and I re-did it today.... in a way. :)

Oh! We're having a heatwave, a tropical heatwave.
The temperature's rising, it isn't surprising,
he certainly can can-can.
He started a heatwave by letting his seat wave,
in such a way that the customers say
that he certainly can
can-can.
Gee, gee! His anatomy makes the mercury!
To 93!

I hope it cools down for you, handsome. I'm not sure whether I'm less happy when it is 110 or -10. At least we can bundle up in the winter!

Every day since this last Thursday here the high temperature has been between 99 and 101 (we hit 101 on Thursday and think it hit 100 on Sunday) not much break in the heat here, still forecasting 95 today.

It's been pretty hot in Boston, too. My dad is one of the anti-global warming people. He does NOT think the planet is getting any warmer. Say, WTF?
