Heatwave in St. Louis

106 degreesWe’re having a heat wave in the Gateway City.  I had to run some errands today and my vehicle thermometer, which has been pretty accurate, displayed 106°F this afternoon.

The weather guy on the radio warned the listeners to “stay inside with air-conditioning if possible”.  Is that really necessary to tell us that?  Is there some moron who’s just sitting outside listening to the radio and thinks, “Oh, crap, I better go inside.”

  1. How’s the humidity up there? On Sunday the heat index here, in Niceville, Fl, was 128 degrees. It was 100+ degrees with 80% humidity.

    • Humidity is about 50% now. Supposed to rise to 75% overnight. So, yeah, it could be worse. I could have to be outside working in it, which I’m not. I’m taking the advice of the weather guy and staying in the air-conditioning.

  2. Humidity is key. We here in Ridgecrest, Calif., just a hop, skip, and a jump from Death Valley, are in the triple digits a lot. Fortunately for us, our humidity is in the single digits a lot. I think we only got to 104 today. Everyone remember, when it gets hot, STAY HYDRATED!

  3. The note to stay inside is probably for parents to leave kids in the house rather than risk them going outside and becoming dehydrated quickly.
