It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out that it’s hot out there. In fact, the thriving metropolis of Laurel, DE cracked the 100 degree mark today. The Laurel Middle School’s weather station recorded 100.1 degrees at 2:08PM (link). According to the forecast, Laurel will be under the heat oppression for one more day.

Watercooler Weather reports the record highs for Monday (today) and Tuesday.

WBOC’s forecast reports:

Temperatures will remain dangerously hot through Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 90s, and Heat Indices over 100! We’ll see a bit of relief late Tuesday, as a cold front slides through and provides a chance of showers and t’storms. High temps behind the front will fall back into the mid 80s for the remainder of the week and then climb to near 90 Saturday.

Looking at WBOC’s extended forecast, we will experience lows on Thursday and Friday in the low 60s. That’s much better that the low 70s, which we have had during this heat wave.

On a final note, I am surprised by the lack of global warming stories while in this heat wave (

UPDATE: I just found out from WBOC that Georgetown did break the record high. The record had been 96 set in 1959. Today’s temperature of 97 breaks that record.
