The all time greatest number of 100 degree days in a calendar year
at Austin... del Rio... and San Antonio are listed below.

Del Rio... ... ... ... 72 in 2001
Austin Bergstrom... 50 in 1998
Austin Mabry... ... .69 in 1925

San Antonio... ... ..36 in 1998

That's odd...it's only about an hour northeast and it got that much hotter?

I like breaking COLD records, not hot ones.. and what happened to the rain today? This was supposed to be the best chance of rain and instead it rained more on the days leading up to it.

Probably has something to do with the humidity levels... might've been drier there so the air could heat up more easily.

Careful with those numbers. You could start a flame war around here..."Austin is better 'cause it had more hot days than SA..." "...no, SA is better because we were cooler than Austin!"

More than likely a geographical issue. Austin is further north, and thus, the weather is influenced less by the Gulf of Mexico.

Unlike SA, Austin is much more hard-pressed to get a sea-breeze based thunderstorms in the summer.

Paul Mireles on KENS thinks those storms might get severe when they arrive here at the hottest part of the day.

Yes, I FINALLY got some rain . Small storms on Friday and Saturday evenings for a total of 4/10", it's better than nothing.
