Yesterday (June 12) Charlotte reached 90 degrees, 91 degrees today. These are the first 90 degree readings of 2013. After today, much cooler and drier air filters in for a while.

I thought it felt good out today.

Sat in my car that was in the sun for a solid 15 minutes with the windows down. Felt good to be hot. BUT I didn't work today; I'm sure it'd be extremely discomforting in pants and button up long sleeve shirt....

Yesterday it was 96* in my neighborhood as I was leaving for work. Where do they take these readings at?

It was 97* , per my car yesterday. That includes an hour commute to cool off "sitting air", so I think 97 is accurate.

Jumping in here with a question. I've been watching your charlotte forum a bit as my family may be relocating there this summer from Texas. I was really hoping the summer temperatures would be a welcome relief in charlotte as compared to TX! Am I wrong? Is this early for you to be in the 90's? What do you top off at temp wise?
Thanks all!

Not sure what part of Texas you are moving from, but I lived in both Charlotte and Austin. Honestly, there is not going to be much of a difference in the temps. I think Charlotte is a tad more green, though.

Car thermometers are notoriously inaccurate, almost always running several degrees above the actual air temperature. Do not rely on car thermometers (or bank thermometers) for official temperatures.

Aren't the air temperature always different than thermometer under metal such as a car that stores/build up heat? I know my outside thermostat is always different than the projected highs from the weather stations.

Indeed. That is why meteorologists discount unofficial readings from bank/car thermometers. They are almost always too warm. The official readings are taken by thermometers are strategically placed to measure the pure air temp.
