Forecast for Dallas: 160F with a chance of showers
Watts up with That? ^ | October 16, 2013 | Anthony Watts

Yes, this is a real current temperature presented by NOAA/NWS for the forecast of Addison, TX near Dallas.

160-in-addison-tx-national-weather-service[1]

I checked the airport ASOS at Dallas Addison Airport (KADS) and sure enough, the reading is there:

Dallas_ASOS_160F

Source: http://w1.weather.gov/data/obhistory/KADS.html

This is likely an ASOS station failure, which is a fairly common occurance, like I pointed out in Honolulu a couple of years ago:

More on NOAA’s FUBAR Honolulu “record highs” ASOS debacle, PLUS finding a long lost GISS station

I find it amazing they don’t have a simple data sanity check built into the NOAA data dissemination system. This wouldn’t even pass in Death Valley. How many other incorrect temperatures get logged but never noticed because they aren’t so absurd as to be impossible?

Well, given that temperature, I hope it does rain.

I live in Dallas.

It looks about right to me.

That’s based on one degree per Addison restaurant

You should probably be seeing vapor rising from your wine or mixed drink by now.

Yeah, but it’s a dry 160 degrees so it’s not so bad.

That sounds like the Weather Channel. They are certain Glowbull Warming is going to make the seas rise catastrophically in one hundred years but they can’t get the current temp right for my zip code.

Rain might cook people alive at that temp.

It’s dry, all right...5% humidity to go along with that 160 degree reading...

I'm guessing Jim Hensen from NASA has picked up a retirement gig calibrating thermometers?

Addison? Maybe the CAF had “FiFi” the B-29 out warming up her engines.

Wait, was this during the roll-call vote in the congress passing that surrender bill, if so it’s possible.. It depends on how many Conservative were in Dallas at the time.. LOL

Good reason to put artificial turf on middle school football fields...saves on water and you don't have to worry about large cracks in the ground.
