In Austin, It's Hot During The Summer

We know that. Really, we do. But this summer is hot, even for Austin.
AUSTIN, Texas (KXAN) - This is now the hottest summer in 83 years.

In 1925, Austin recorded 69 days of triple-digit heat.The high temperature reached 101 degree in Austin this Friday afternoon-the 44th day this summer that highs have reached or exceeded 100 degrees.

It is possible the all-time record for 100 degree heat will be threatened since more high-temperture days are forecasted for at least another week.  If the record of 70 days is to be broken, triple-digit highs would have to continue into September.

The earliest the all-time record could be broken would be September 3rd, but only if temperatures reach 100 degrees every day between now and then.  It's not likely to happen, but the First Warning Weather team is forecasting 100 degree readings for the next seven consecutive days. 
Yeah. It's hot. People in Texas know that. It happens.

If you'll excuse me, I need a refill on my iced tea.
