Temps To Hit 110 Degrees - Officials Warn "Stay Inside" As Holiday Heat Wave Hammers East Coast

Just in time for American consumers to be "held hostage" by high energy prices as the WTI front-month contract eclipses $75 for the first time in three-and-a-half years, meteorologists are forecasting a heat wave that could drive temperatures on the East Coast into the 100s as Americans prepare for the July 4 holiday.

In anticipation of the high temperatures, the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory affecting the northeast and mid-Atlantic from Virginia to Maine. "Heat advisories and some excessive heat warnings are in effect from central Virginia to eastern Maine. High temperatures in the 90s, combined with high dewpoints, are expected result in heat indices of 95 to 110 degrees for many areas."

Furthermore, peak temperatures of 105-110 Wednesday afternoon could make even simple activities like walking outside dangerous.

The heat is so bad in some areas that, according to Fox News, nearly 150 elderly people had to be evacuated from a long-term care facility in Mount Holly, NJ following a mechanical problem that shut down the facility's air conditioning and power.

Anybody planning to spend time outdoors, in parks or at the beach, should take precautions like staying hydrated and making sure there's enough water on hand to avoid heatstroke, according to ABC 7.

The New York State Office for the Aging issued a warning to senior citizens to "stay inside" during the heat wave, as hot weather can be particularly dangerous for the elderly.

The heatwave looks like it will break on Wednesday with an afternoon thunderstorm expected in a few areas. But high temperatures are expected to persist until the end of the week.

I have the same complaint, around here weather people don't call it heat index anymore, it's the "Feels Like temp" and they do a piss poor job of differentiating between the two so you have crazy libtard enviro wacky people claiming global warming is back etc.

Everyone knows what the heat index is, just use the actual and we'll be fine morons.

Check out the Average summer temps in the US:

"Summer temperature averages range from a high of 81.1 degrees Fahrenheit (27.3 degrees Celsius) in Louisiana and Texas to a low of 52.3 °F (11.3 °C) in Alaska. For the entire United States, excluding Hawaii and Alaska, the season averages 71.9 °F (22.2 °C)."

So according to these idiots the highest summer temp in Louisiana is 81 degrees. Anyone living in Louisiana care to comment... (lol) 

According to the maps,,, it NEVER goes above 90. 

Now there is some truly ridiculous BS. They'll resort to anything for their beloved GW. 

Edit: The Internet was supposed to be the information highway. They have turned it into bullshit alley.

Bullshit.

Here are the hottest degree days in NY... Pretty cool in recent years

here's  a complete expose of the ginned up climate hysteria

http://www.drroyspencer.com/2018/07/summer-causes-climate-change-hyster…

 

Globally, temperatures are just about at the 20 year PAUSE levels... even though CO2 levels have risen exponentially over that interval.

Fact is, May-June temperatures are about what they in 1987-88...

It's really inconvenient for you that the continental US represents only around 1.58% of the total surface area of Earth.  And U.S. centric thinking is the epitome of arrogance and stupidity.

But of course other parts of the Earth hit record temps last month.  But don't look now, your belief might be questioned.  If not disposed of due to that pesky issue known as reality.

Hey Dumbo: The E Coast US heatwave happens to be the subject under discussion..

 

In any case I did post global temperatures... try reading the whole Post...we're back at the Pause level.... 20 years plus with no significant global temperature increase... Current GLOBAL temperatures around the 1983-84 levels... just look at the graph

And land based thermometers cover about 20% of the earth's land mass. The remaining 80% is infilled and homogenized. Sometimes up to 10000 miles is interpolated. Greenland ice is expanding and the Arctic is colder than average right now. 

Like trying to average the color of your television screens over a year. It's stupid. Satellites by the way show a small amount of warming well within historical cycles. Satellite and balloon coverage is 90%. But it's excluded because it's embarrassing to the narrative

Exactly. Land based thermometers are concentrated in the Northern hemisphere and miss most of the oceans and the S. hemisphere... even then, the thermometers are routinely placed on airport runways and busy urban intersections...

 

There really aren't enough samples to begin to create a "global temperature"... the closest decent data come from satellites and they show no alarming warming trends... basically 1.3 degrees C per century... (at most)

Also satellites data started being published in 79. Just as we were coming out of " The coming Ice Age" scare that " might happen" due to the disturbing cold trend. And yes hundreds of papers were published to explain it. Soot, SOx, the Sun. All of which we still have today on a larger scale with Chinese and Indian industry, which was nonexistent back then. Now it's CO2 which is most likely pseudoscience. Or just a wrong Hypothesis

Dangerous climate only alarming to ignorant, superstitious sheeple... When I read this headline I remembered back to my childhood in the Fifties living in NYC... I recall even as a little kid how hot it was during some of those summers..

Sure enough, my memories were right

Some of the hottest degree days occurred in the Fifties.
