    Record-setting heat not over yet
    Alan Gomez, USA TODAY

    Summer heat waves are expected in the South. But in Michigan?
    Cities in Wisconsin and Michigan and all the way down to Texas and Florida have been smashing heat records this week: concrete roads buckled, one person was found dead and seven show dogs died. "Records will continue to roll in," said James Wilson, a meteorologist at The Weather Channel.

    Wilson said a wide swath of the country is experiencing temperatures ranging 10 to 15 degrees above average.

    Some record-setting temperatures set on Wednesday: 96 degrees in Grand Rapids, Mich.; 95 in Traverse City, Mich.; 105 in Austin; 104 in Houston; and 106 in Waco, breaking a record.

    Record Heat Eyed This Week
    High Pressure To Send Mercury Into Possible Record Territory

    July 5, 2009

    PHOENIX -- Drier air will keep the monsoon at bay, with strong high pressure paving the way for possible record-breaking heat later this week, CBS 5 meteorologists said on Sunday.

    Temperatures of 112 degrees or hotter are expected Friday through Sunday, forecasters said.

    With no significant moisture expected to return anytime soon, the weather models suggest the coming week could turn out to be the hottest stretch of temperatures this year, weather experts said.

    Highs today could reach 110 degrees. From Monday through Thursday, daytime highs are expected to range from 104 to 109.

    Total lie.

    Almost the entirety of the 11 western states are cooler than normal.....Phoenix and Las Vegas only broke into triple-digit temperatures for the year a couple of weeks back.

    SACRAMENTO, CA - Expect scorching high temperatures over the Central Valley, delta and foothills.

    News10 Microcast Meteorologist Patty Souza said highs ranged from 106 to 110 Sunday afternoon breaking several records, with more heat anticipated for Monday. Souza said a strong ridge of high pressure had built over the western U.S. bringing very hot and dry conditions along with poor air quality.

    I live near Phillly. I've had the AC on once so far this year. It's freakin' July 5. No hazy, no hot, no humid. Pleasant, lovely weather. Low 80's all this week, low humidity.

    If this is what the gw loons call climate change, I'll take it.
