Fall is fast approaching and everyone wants to know if we are done with the summer heat.
Temperatures will approach 100° this afternoon and if McCarran gets that warm, it will be the 95th time this year.
That would move 2018 into a tie for second place in our 81-year weather history for the most triple-digit days. The good news is that today might be our final 100° day of the year. On average, the last such day is September 16.
Last year our last 100° high temperature happened on September 12. The latest into the year we've hit 100° was in 1977 on October 4.
Temperatures will drop to highs in the middle and upper 90s tomorrow through the weekend as a series of low pressure troughs move across the Pacific Northwest. By the middle of next week, a ridge of high pressure will develop across the West coast and that may send temperatures toward 100°.
The good news is that each passing September day it becomes more difficult to get to the triple digits.
