Countdown to record number of 100 degree days

August 20th, 2011 at 4:11 pm by under Weather

We’ve hit another triple digit day milestone. By 2 p.m. Saturday, we hit 100 degrees at Camp Mabry in Austin. That marks our 66th day of triple digit heat this summer. So, 2011 is tied with 1923 for 3rd place in the history books. Are we sick of this heat yet?!

Just wait, our seven day forecast puts the record in our crosshairs. We’ll likely tie it at 69 days Tuesday and break it with 70 days Wednesday.

Here’s more from the NWS:
