The Century Club

For the first time since 1999, Columbus reached 100° for a daily high at the airport. About 15 miles south of the airport I didn't quite get there, only making it to 98°. That temp was confirmed with a reading of 100° at a weather station to my west and 97° at a MADIS station just two miles southeast.

Even at this late hour (8:30pm) we're still in the mid 90's with the sun going down:

While the main story was unofficially hitting the century mark today, the real healine is that this is the start of a long term heat wave. For at least the next week in the extended forecast we're looking at mid 90's every day.

The only saving grace over the next few days is a stalled out front across our area that will bring a chance of rain through the weekend. But the coverage isn't widespread and the totals won't be enough to help our drought much.

Expect the next few days to be some of the most miserable of this young summer.
