You are not arguing with me but the National Weather Service.

ummm.... I wasn't arguing, and never doubted your numbers... You posted the specific highs for this weekend (highest temps ever on June 30, July 1, and July 2). I just went one step farther and posted the highest temp ever for Chattanooga (July 28). My number also came from the NWS.

A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BE OVER THE REGION FOR THE NEXT
SEVERAL DAYS. THIS HIGH WILL HELP TO GENERATE NEAR RECORD HIGH
TEMPERATURES FOR FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY...WITH TEMPERATURES EXPECTED
TO CLIMB TO BETWEEN 95 AND 100 IN THE TRI- CITIES AREA...TO AROUND 100
DEGREES IN THE KNOXVILLE AREA...AND TO BETWEEN 100 AND 105 IN THE
CHATTANOOGA AREA.


NWS has the possible high for Saturday in Chattanooga at 103.

1) I can't find where you posted that before I started "arguing", so I'm still pretty sure I wasn't arguing with you OR the NWS in my original post. I was just passing on information from a normally somewhat reliable source of weather information (The Weather Channel).
2) Arguing about high temperatures forecast 3 days in advance is quite silly.
3) YOU appear to want to argue, so...
Chattanooga's Forecast High Temps for Saturday, July 1, 2012 (as of 12:00pm, 6/28/12):
The Weather Channel: 107
Ch. 3, WRCB: 105
Ch. 9, WTVC: 102
Ch. 12, WDEF: 103
A friend of mine who is a weather nut: 102 (he says he got his info from NWS)
My kids: "PLEEEEEEASE can we go to the pooooool???"
My dogs: "We are NOT going outside. You'll just have to clean up the mess."
National Weather Service: Between 100 and 105 (interestingly, the weather statement you quoted is available directly from TWC's website, so apparently TWC ignored it when coming up with 107)

It's going to be freaking hot, so take your pick and argue away. Personally, when Saturday rolls around I'm going to be sitting somewhere with an air conditioner blowing on me (or else sitting in the pool) while NOT reading this thread.

I didn't really think we were arguing. It was an expression. Geez. It's only a joke. It's city-data forum, we aren't solving world hunger. I hope you have a better day and hope there are no hard feelings!

I take it you don't like the heat!

All I can say is I'm headed for the basement, where it stays cool no matter the outside temps.
I don't plan to resurface until nighttime, when it drops back down to the sixties and seventies.
