Hottest August since 2006

Monday 16 August 2010 / 4:00pm

Heat eased a bit Monday but the expectation of a true "cool down" is coming up short. We can thank the stubborn high aloft (which has been nearby all month) for continuing the very hot weather.
 
 
The number of 100-or-better days each year since 2006 (Sherman observations):
 
2006:   30
2007:   -0-
2008:     8
2009:   10
2010:   18 (as of August 16)
 
A few more Texoma cities and their 100+ count for 2010
 
100+ days so far in 2010
City Days of 100 or higher Through which date?
Ada 12 Aug 16
Antlers 13 Aug 16
Ardmore 14 Aug 16
Durant 14 Aug 16
Gainesville 15 Aug 16
Hugo 10 Aug 16
Paris 14 Aug 16
Sherman-Denison 18 Aug 16
Tishomingo 12 Aug 16
 
10 is about the average per year.
 
August 2006 is now easily the hottest since the  brutal heat of 2006. Given the pattern, we're going to be close to exceeding even that value sometime by next this week, if this heat keeps up.
 
Sherman failed to reach 100 Sunday for only the second time this month. Many locations over the northern Half of Texoma, like Ada and Ardmore, stayed below 100 Monday as a result of the frontal passage.
