Heard that! I was chatting with a contractor who said it was 103 degrees today. Having just gone through weeks of 100+ degree temps here in Texas and finally getting a break, I was glad I wasn't there yet.

I just hope no fires break out with the low humidity. Fortunately, these temps won't last much longer.

People at the outdoor Britt Festival in Jacksonville will melt like butter on a hot sidewalk!

Medford is forecast at 111 degrees today. At my house it is already 96 degrees in the shade, and it's 15 minutes shy of solar noon. I am so glad I finished the energy upgrade on the house, including honeycomb blinds on the windows.

My son moved to SoCal for school and stayed. The area he lives in is generally hotter than it is here (not this week). The difference is in north vs south.

There the high of the day is usually around 1:00. Here it is generally around 5:00. Generally I don't have to close up the house here until it hits about 80° outside, which is usually around 11-12 (today it was 10:00).

The upside is that there is much more time in the morning to get things done here before it is unbearably hot. Plus our average season of "over 90°" temps is about 4 weeks, compared to the 12 weeks where he lives.

The downside is that it doesn't really cool off enough to open the house up here until about 11pm but where he lives it starts to really cool around 8-9pm.

Almost 90 at 11 pm is nuts. I heard the coast was even in the 90's today so seeking relief there was out of the question.

The weather man on kobi5.com said Medford set a new record today, of 109.....

On the mountain, at 2000' it was up to 100.

A friend was in Bandon this week - when she left Bandon at 10:00 yesterday morning, it was 53° and when she got home to Ashland it was 108°. Double the temp. Often when it is really hot inland it is cool and windy - sometimes foggy - on the Southern Oregon coast.

Also during the hot part of the day here in Medford it was 10% RH, so a mister or a fan with a wet towel on it provides a lot of relief. It does mean all of my acoustic instruments have to go back in their cases when it gets hot and dry.
