We should all root for 118 so we can all claim to have lived here on that record day.

We have to be 116 or 117 uncomfortable .

Let us go for it and get it in the record book.

Anyone know if you can bribe the weatherman? Or can we get a slot hijacker to fix the thermometer?

Maybe we can get Mayweather to bet on it. I wonder if the books will pick it up?

Not only do we need 118 but with a Vegas twist.

I was here for the 117 back 2004 (actually, my whole family from back east was, too.. which was funny) and it really didn't feel that different than the 112-114 we get for a few days every summer. Friends and I are heading out to Death Valley on Saturday to see if 128f/56c feels meaningfully different! Bring it on!

Hitting 117 this early in the year cannot be a good thing when you look at the larger picture. It's just one more fact to add to countless others that show that our climate is changing... and those who deny it, deny reality.

They have a lot of practice at denying reality. They're really good at it.

Actually peak temperatures are hit in late June. They then drop off a bit in July and August as the monsoon gets in here.

The weatherman the other night also pointed out this is the first real hot streak since 2007.

According to multiple sites, July and August are our hottest months, not June:

I am for it why not I lived the opposite before and -25 and -30 degrees if no difference cold is cold and hot is hot! one other reason June is a peak month because the sun shines longer each day and that peaks on June 21th we then start going very slow with less sunshine each day. We are also 78 days without rain so lets root for that record to be broken also . This dry heat is much more tolerable than the humid sticky 24/7 heat elsewhere which produce dangerous thunderstorms tornadoes hurricanes and etc. It also breeds misquotes by the hoards where you have to put chicken wire in your windows to keep the small ones out . We do live in the desert so expect it

June builds all month while July and August are relatively flatter.

Not a big differential or anything...but it does not get hotter as the summer rolls on.

Here is a view from the NLV airport. A similar chart existed for LAS but has vanished recently.
