Triple-digit temperatures expected to feel as hot as 110 degrees have prompted excessive heat warnings across the D.C. area on Saturday and could threaten all-time highs.

The day continued a trend in the area that hasnít seen high temperatures lower than 95 degrees since the month began.

National Weather Service...

The NWS and NOAA are totally useless government agencies. Their predictions are generally wrong. Furthermore, the alarmist, anti-American agenda is clear: promote the twin hoaxes of global warming and so-called "climate change".

Privately run weather services, notably WeatherBell with Joe Bastardi are far more accurate and don't waste taxpayer dollars perpetuating junk science.

I like the hot weather. You can get used to it if you stay outside most of the time. Sitting inside with air conditioning makes people less tolerant of the heat. Remember that air conditioning is only a recent invention. Our Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on a steaming July day and back then, they wore heavy wool clothing from head to toe.

Watch the riots begin. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit. They can’t take the heat like the rest of us.

I was used to the heat when I was a paint room foreman. 100 degrees was downright cool after spending so much time in proximity to paint ovens.

I like Joe Bastardi. I used to subscribe to his blog on AccuWeather but he left there about a year or so ago. Does his WeatherBell blog match up to his AccuWeather blog? He seems to charge a lot more on WeatherBell which is why I haven’t signed up yet.

Well said. I'm in Texas and we keep the thermostat at 87 during the summer months...feels just fine to us. I have a long memory of the bone-chilling winters in Pennsylvania where I was raised. When it's well into the triple digits here, all I have to do is think back some 55 years to the icy blasts coming off Lake Erie.

Cue The Cremation of Sam McGee by Robert Service.

This is positively just the sun doing its thing, very little of anything other than blue sky visible in the air today around D.C. and Northern Virginia. There were hot days during the first little ice age too.

It’s $160 per year and well worth it. As I understand things, Bastardi was nudged out of AccuWeather because he didn’t follow their liberal line of pushing the lies of AGW. It’s AccuWeather’s loss IMHO.
