I just checked weather data for NYC temps day-by-day in July 1996 and most days were in the upper 70s

Are you pulling this out of your *****?

My mistake - I'm sorry.

It was July (June?) 1976 (again, I apologize) - it was the time of the New York Blackout

There were two days of that week where 122 was recorded at Sky Harbor. Other parts of the valley reported (although it cannot be official) 131 (Falcon Field in Mesa)

Ok, it was a extremely rare event. Overall PHX is MUCH hotter than D.C.

The Palm Springs area is hotter than either Las Vegas or Phoenix. Plus the humidity over there is always higher.

Isn't Palm Springs in "CA desert areas"? Geeze!
Palm Springs is not normally hotter than Phoenix. I doubt that Palm Springs is generally hotter than Phoenix.
Plus the humidity over where is hotter?

Just an FYI - Las Vegas usually (not always) runs 8 to 10 degrees cooler than Phoenix.

What makes LV worse than Phoenix though is the wind - it is not uncommon to have 40 / 50 mph winds, during the heat of the day, during the summer - makes it seem like a blast furnace. AND, they only call that a "breeze"
