I know Austin has an extremely hot weather and have been experience it myself these few weeks since we moved here. Not that Im not used to, Puerto Rico, where I come from is very hot in the summer too, more humid though, but the 3 digit temps are not that common, not even in the summer. The question is; when is this hot weather going to give us a break? Can anyone tell me when or how much longer for these 3 digits temperatures will give us a break. Just to have a little hope. Being a rosacea sufferer I really need to know. Thank youplease wait 2 seconds for an uncompressed image, or press Ctrl+F5 for original quality page

Right around Thanksgiving !

BTW, you're a bit fortunate, weatherwise. We moved here just in time for the two 'hottest' summers on record. Imagine the temps you've 'enjoyed' for the past couple of weeks s-p-r-e-a-d out over most of 5 months. DANG, it was hot last summer!

Triple digits probably another 10-20 days, then it will drop off a few degrees (only like 5) for mid-late September. September sometimes has pretty high 100+ degree spurts, but they don't last as long as they do in August.

By October, it drops a bit more but still hot, usually til the very end of the month -- like right around Halloween. At that point, we'll see our first 20 degree drop.

Then, pretty good weather overall till about the beginning of May. A couple of cold snaps, some rain storms, maybe dipping below freezing for a total of 5-7 days or so (probably not consecutive), but all in all good outdoor weather.

It is going to cool down this weekend, according to Yahoo Weather. Down to 92 as a high on Sunday.

(106 now, and only getting hotter, so I suppose I better walk home before it gets too hot to do so safely)

I noticed this too, the next week is supposed to be highs in the mid 90's, a welcome break after the last several weeks.

106! Where are you seeing that? The official weather services are saying 103? I;m curious because I have been wondering if this could be the hottest day of the year, with much cooler temperatures starting tomorrow.
