111 degrees but it's a dry heat

It looks like we're heading toward breaking some records as a result of the weather in Tucson.

If the forecast holds, it will be the first June in history where all 30 days of the month have had a 100 degree or higher high temperature.  And, we're going to have several days in a row of 110 or higher starting on Friday.  The record for the longest streak of 110 degree or higher days is six, and that was in 1994.  We probably won't break that, but mother nature has been making us sweat in this city to kick off the summer.

It was plenty hot in the Ken Carr car when I got into it after work today.  And, it had been sitting in the shade of a tree for an hour before I got in.

The official temperature outside of the Ken Carr car at 5:30 p.m. today was 111 degrees.
But, it's a dry heat.
