Truth, FLORIDA is that much hotter. The news stations do not report the highest temperature. They give temperatures from EVERY weather recording station in the METRO. Mind you this is CENTRAL FLORIDA so while it is 89 or 90 on the coast it is actually about 96 -99 inland but they take the mean and give us a forecast of 93-95 which everybody here knows our temperature on Channel 9, 13,6, 2, or 35 rarely goes above 96 for an actual forecast. That being said Orlando probably hit the 100 degree mark on several occasions but they wont record it. They give weather as a MEtro unfortunately. I have a heat index reader as well and it has been 108-111 since end of may. So it is really hot.

Well, the sun is going into an active state so I would imagine it will be hotter over the several years and will probably cause a lot of interesting weather events over the next several years. The good news is, some scientists believe that the sun will simmer down in 2017 and end its 36 year global warming cycle.

In other words, buy lots of sunblock and be sure you have fans and your A/C is in good shape for awhile!

I have read this as well. Our fans run constantly here in the office and at home, along with the AC.It is murderous outside. thank God we have big oak trees on the south side of the house.

I think the way the developers are plowing up everything and adding more concrete and asphalt isn't helping either. YOu can't tell me that all of that stuff collecting the heat doesn't make a difference.

I personally would like to live in N Fla but it isn't possible at this time in my life. One of the worst summers I ever spent in my life was at 16 yrs old in Columbia, SC. I could hardly breath and I grew up in Florida heat.......

I do feel sorry for the people who are having a hard time with this heat but I sure get tired of hearing them go on and on and on about it.....

I think it is getting hotter every year. Or maybe I'm tolerating it less and less. Probably both.

If I recall last May and June was bearable and it was late Summer and most of the Fall that was brutal. So how has May and June stacked up this year? Power usage seems way up and we have had record heat in recent weeks. And Summer 'officially' doesn't begin until Monday... The optimist in me hopes this Fall will flip and we get that first real cold front in early October this time..

Only your imaginations, the temp has fluctuated very little over the last 100 years.

For over a century, there has been no statistically significant long-term trend in

those experienced in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s.

Temps vary every summer. Just depends on the upper levels and where high pressure is placed aloft.
