Americans sweltered today in the scorching heat in what was officially the hottest day of the year in scores of cities across the country.

The heatwave covered a million square miles, affecting 141million Americans.

New York's Manhattan experienced the hottest ever July 22 recorded, with an overwhelming 104-degree temperature in Central Park.

The Washington DC region continued to be smothered in heat and humidity with temperatures reaching 102 degrees but with a heat index of more than 120 - hotter than Death Valley at daybreak

Screw the heat index just list the temp. They all push the heat index numbers to get the people believing global warming is taking place. Its called SUMMER people. Some years its hotter than others you will live.

New York pussies....it hasn't been below 106 here in the California desert for weeks.

Yeah, we don't have the accompanying humidity, but we will beginning early next week.

Suck it up and live with it. We do. Annually. With no fawning press. It's doable. Quite.

I dunno. Last summer we had a week long heatwave that peaked at ninety and I was stuck in a place with no air conditioning and it was the hottest that has ever been. As a kid, it sometimes got no hotter than high Eighties. Now it’s been up to over a hundred and ten in some areas and something IS up. With the fact that concrete has been exploding in some areas, I would have to say that it is getting hotter. In June, we had some blazing temps that usually don’t show up until mid-August and this weather is so unusual.

Much cooler down here. I’ll arrange some South Carolina cool and Black Velvet to be delivered via FedEx to you ASAP.

Enjoy.

In Seattle they are calling it the 28 minute summer, because it has only been above 80 for 28 minutes so far. It only got to 70 degrees today.

I’ve lived in NYC since Ike’s first term. We get heat waves like this once or twice a decade. They suck, but they’re nothing new.

“As a kid, it sometimes got no hotter than high Eighties.”

When I was a kid, northern California had between one and two dozen 100+ days each summer. So far, we’ve had only one day that almost reached 100 but most of the summer has been in the 80’s. Currently 90.

The irony of it is that it has been quite mild here on the east coast this summer. July is almost over and this is the first heat wave this year and it is only lasting 4 days. As a runner training for a half marathon, I know what I am talking about. Other than ‘09, which I remember well because I was unemployed and playing Mr Mom with an infant that summer, this has been the coolest summer in the last 10 years. Newport News, VA

There is no such thing as a heat wave unless it reaches NY or DC.

In my little neck of the woods, it’s been over 100 for 50+ consecutive days, but flyover heat waves don’t matter....

Yep, last time it was this hot was in 77. And I remember a few summers in the 60’s that were like this. Nothing new in NYC, just the press trying to sell papers is all.

I take the heat index predictions very seriously. And the current heat index reading even more so. But I don't work in an air-conditioned cubicle.

I’m not an enviro-nazi, but frankly something is going above and beyond. If it’s like this or worse next summer, I am for one going to start taking the global warming theory a bit more seriously. It’s definately like a sauna now and the death toll is probably highter than 22 people, probably more.

Agree... I do work in the A/C, but I am a runner and the heat index tells me if I can run after work or if I have to get up at 5 and do it in morning. It os all about the humidity.

Well last winter was damn cold on the East Coast and this summer, as a whole has been very mild, albiet the last 2 days were hotter than Jades. Don’t get weather confused with climate.

and in winter the local news readers tell us ..wear warm clothing, its cold out there, check on seniors, and stay inside Heat Centers, and blah blah blah. Then the news readers tell us its HOT out there, stay indoors with A/C wear light clothing, drink water and check on the seniors.
While they are OUTSIDE doing hat we are told we shouldn;t. I mean. come on how stupid do they think we are? (very, obviously)

Here’s the routine, folks: at roughly -15F, your beer freezes on the inside of your bottle when you have a “cold one” after work. At roughly 100F heat index, if you look down at the sweat on your forearm, and it’s not evaporating, you’re screwed unless you find a cold one. Or twelve.

Two summers ago, we (NYC and environs)) had a summer where we did not go over ninety degrees through all of July and at least half of August (if not more...I was on vacay). The Iceman Cometh in Dec/Jan/Feb...Global Cooling, such as when I was in high school (70’s) and we were worrying about the coming Ice Age...who’s with me on this?

Ran my usual Friday evening 10K. Temperature was 99 degrees, but with the sun going down it wasn't too bad.

I skipped my 7 miler this AM. Alarm went off at 5 and I reset it for 615. Have a 13.1 trial scheduled for Sunday morning. Stashing a couple of Gatorades along the course. Last week did 12, which was a personal record so we’ll see how it goes. Can’t wait for the race Labor Day weekend (Virginia Beach Rock n Roll half marathon) so I can get back to the 3 and 5 mile routes. On a positive note I have gone friends m 190 pounds in November to 158 without changing my eating habits at all. Down to wearing 32 inch pants for the first time since I was 15. I am 32 now. I have been running for 4 years, but this is the first time I’ve ramped up the milage like this.

Today in Seattle was the first day in a week or more that we hit 70 I think. Supposed to be 79 or maybe even 80 tomorrow. (A couple of weeks ago we finally hit 80 for 72 minutes!)

Next week is back to the upper 60’s.

Good luck to you on your 13.1. I gave those up several years ago. I'm still maintaining my 10K's. Been doing it for 18 years, but it's getting old...and so am I.

Regards.

We’re used to 105+ in Central Ca but this summer we’ve had maybe 7 days that hot. We’ve mostly had temps in the upper 80’s and 90’s. I’ve lived here for 30 years and don’t ever remember summer temps like this.

I may be wrong about this, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that (in the NYC area at least) the 2nd or 3rd week of July is typically the hottest week of the year.

It may be getting hotter, but this has actually been a pretty normal summer (if not cooler than normal) up to this point. This is the first real "heat wave" we've had here in this area. Only a couple of days of 90+ temperatures before this.

And last winter was colder than normal with a lot of snow, too.

It was 100 here in Drums PA until 8pm then it dropped to 90. It was bad air all I did was put some toys in the shed and I had to come in and use my inhaler.

I have never worked in a air conditioned cubicle have always worked outdoors in Florida yes its hot but you cope with it, drink lots of water summer is hot just as winter is cold.Wait till winter everyone complaining about the heat will be whining about how freaking cold it is. Get rid of the heat index BS its 92 or 17 degrees period not feels like 105 or 5 degrees.This is just another tool for the global warming crowd to use to get their dirty deeds done.

I use it as a tool, and I’m not part of the global-warming crowd. I also don’t feel threatened by the metric system, either.

I know almost everybody here will hate me but I had a real scorcher of a day yesterday, might have been the hottest day of the year so far...

It was 76 degrees in Wasilla, Alaska.

usually we get a week or two of days just over 70F, and rarely usually about every other year might break 80F for a couple of days.

Sorry for those trying to cope with the heat, look at it this way, you would never survive our winters then.

And I cannot ever visit a Florida theme park other than in january and I almost pass out at 85F.

It got mighty hot on July 4 1966 before glo-bull warming when few could afford air conditioners.

http://www.weather.com/outlook/health/fitness/wxclimatology/daily/USNY0981?climoMonth=7

I don’t necessarily believe these “high temp” readings. Back in 1972 the temperature in Tulsa OK was 105 degrees on May 5. Our thermometer registered 105. All the news channels were commenting on the 105 degree heat, but when I looked up the ACTUAL local temp on the internet it was far less.

It must have been the concrete buildings downtown that radiated heat and caused it registered much higher.

Our temp here in the Ozarks was 101 a few days ago. another person a few miles from here registered 104 on her thermometer so it varies from place to place.
