Here’s some historical perspective on today’s heat. Look at how temperatures soared in many states in 1936.
“During 1936, 117F temperatures were common from Texas to North Dakota,” says Tony Heller. “South Dakota was over 120F. North Dakota was over 119F. Nebraska was 118F. Iowa was 117F. Missouri was 118F. Oklahoma was 120F. Texas was 119F. Arkansas was 117F.”
Can you believe that?
Over 119F in North Dakota? North Dakota is right up there adjacent to the Canadian border.
Over 120F in South Dakota? Now that’s a heat wave,.
