Heat index about 110-116 here in Cleveland area today. Actual temps were 97-101 across the area. Not sure but I think it's the hottest day of the year so far.

I've had to work out in 100+ heat index weather, and the worst part is the from minutes five to twenty. After about twenty minutes, you're so thoroughly drenched in sweat, it keeps the body cool enough, while your body has acclimated to it.

It's currently pouring rain here in middle TN, but the heat index is still 100. There's nothing I hate more than summers here (let alone an above average summer, which we seem to get every year lately). No amount of cold weather has ever given me the discomfort I get from just an average summer here. With any other kind of uncomfortable weather condition I've experienced, all I had to tell myself was, "Hey, at least it's not summer" and all of a sudden it didn't seem so bad. Honestly, I think I'd rather have a toothache, and that's really saying something.






Okay, maybe not a toothache.

Edit: BTW, Weather.com says the current heat index in Atlanta is 100. Not as bad as some places, but still horrible.
When in history has it been too hot to drive a car, as apposed to roads being closed due to extreme winter weather conditions? It just happened this past winter.

It hit 100+ degrees back in early June here in St. Paul, and It was nearing 100 for the past few days... I'm looking forward to the fall weather.

Yeah, you guys have some crazy weather swings up North. You guys have some REALLY severe heat-waves that cities like Miami, ATL, and LA don't have.

Actually I misunderstood your post. I thought you meant it's never too hot when travelling in a car.

I might be wrong, but I think that Miami, Buffalo and Honolulu are the only three major U.S. cities never to reach 100 degrees, at least not during the National Weather Service era (1950-present).
