Heat Index in Paducah: 153!
Weather Underground ^

Posted on 07/11/2011 2:44:14 PM PDT by Renfield

At 5:20 PM EST(4:20 local time), 7-11-2011, the Weather Underground website showed the heat index in Paducah, KY, to be 153 degrees (99 degrees with a 92 degree dew point). I've never seen it like this. (I'm in another part of the state, where the heat index is a paltry 111...I feel like a piker).

Post your astounding summer weather reports here...how hot is it where you are?

p.s. For any foreigners reading this, 153 degrees equates to 67 degrees Centigrade; it’s literally hot enough to cook food outdoors in Paducah today.

Indianapolis International Airport is at 113 degrees (heat index), which is ridiculous, because I don’t know anyone who lives at the airport!

After a lovely weekend in the mid 70’s, it finally cooled off a bit. Today we’ll be in the upper 60’s...

It’s 71 here...

Say what you will about Santa Monica (and I’d probably agree) but the weather doesn’t suck.

It’s hovering around 105-110 here in Oklahoma, that’s the actual temp, not a heat index....

This is an OBVIOUS error. Sorry...but there is no way the dew point is that high. Looking around the area...looks like the dewpoint is likely in the upper 70’s. So...assuming it’s 78...that puts the heat index at 116F.

It’s 67 here in the inland part of the Bay Area. No AC necessary—just open the windows. There may be many reasons why California is a carpy place to live, but when it’s 110 in most of the US, I’m very grateful to be here.

Only temperature does the actual cooking. The humidity just makes sure that it is nicely steamed rather than broiled.

I moved to Dallas one summer, unloaded the houseplants into the patio, went back to help the movers with the truck. And hour or so later I went back to check on the plants...

Texas heat. Just damn.

In Sacramento today it's 81, light SW breeze and 28% humidity.

It's normally 101 and 24%.

Sucks for the tomato and peach farmers, but it's great for the rest of us.

95F here in Indiana isn’t all that unusual but it’s rarely coupled with 60 to 70% humidity during the daytime hours.

Our friends in the gulf states must have installed a new and improved humidity pump.

Okay... that still don’t make any difference that the parking lot literally stuck to my feet this afternoon at work and I left a nice set of foot prints on an asphalt tarmac...

Dayton Oh at 2:00pm, 95 degrees, dewpoint 81, for a heat index of 113.
I don’t recall ever seeing a dewpoint that high before. I know it is impossible to breathe.

just heard this on local radio today here in MN:

” today’s heat index feels 156 degrees warmer than the coldest windchill factor (-44) this past winter”

no wonder I hate it here.
