How Hot Is It in New York Right Now? This Hot.
New York Magazine ^ | 7/19/2013 | Dan Amira

New York. So hot right now, New York.

Today, in fact, is going to be even hotter than the past few days. The heat index — a measurement that combines temperature with humidity to represent how hot it actually feels — is expected to reach as high as 108 degrees. But when it gets this hot, not even the heat index can tell the whole story. That story can only be told through the strange happenings throughout the city, as reported on Twitter.

Has Mayor Loonberg asked New Yorkers to turn off the AC and fan themselves?

I wish they wouldn't use the "heat index". Give the temperature and humidity, and let people figure it out.

It is not 108 in NYC.

The same for “wind-chill factor”. All you need to do, to eliminate the “wind-chill” effect, is wear wind-breaking clothes, and turn your back to the wind (or wear a balaclava too). The “heat index”, or “humidex” is a little harder to escape. However, your A/C works much, much better at 90*, with a “heat index of 110*, than it would at an actual 110*. These “factors” are good for nothing but hype for weather reporters.

July has been pretty good so far. 1st week was in the low 80s. Last week was hot. This week back in the 80s and 90s. Currently 77 after the rain.

New Yorkers are a bunch of pussies!
Its 105 on the front porch right now and that’s in the shade.
105 at 2:16 pm, and that’s quite a bit cooler than yesterday.

Texas here. For those NY’ers complaining all I can say is..

No kidding! I live just North of Houston. Grew up a few miles West of FW. The Summer of '80 was a killer. I worked in an non air conditioned PVC pipe plant. We had 100+ temps for over 90 days in a row. That's just the way it is in Texas...

I love how everyone in New York City thinks the rest of the country gives a rat’s backside about every twist & turn in their weather.

News flash: no one cares.

You’d think so; but, when it’s too cold out for a balaclava to help, covering your face with baklava will keep you warm. ;)

Hey, New Yawkers......y'all come down to Florida.....and cool off!

It's 76 as I type.

And picture in your mind five minutes away from me a gorgeous white sand beach, palm trees, sparkling aqua water with gentle white caps, azure sky, sea shells, shore birds, sailboats passing, a mai tai....and thou damn yankees beside me in this paradise.

I really do not care. Burning hot where I am at. N Easterners remind me of people who always go on about their cold and flu was far worse than your cold and flu. Even though there are no facts to prove that.

Ugh

My apology to anyone who is conservative from that region. I know they aren’t the whiners.
