There is only one thing worse than being Gosho, and that is not being Gosho

No scorchio. And http://forecast.weather.gov/product...p?site=NWS&product=CF6&issuedby=ATT is up to date again. Although if you go to those numbered links at the top of the page, link number 2 should be the information for August. It's a duplicate of September, so August is missing from the record.

I'd have to look it up to remember the last time we had a high that wasn't in the upper 90s or scorchio smiley - sadface

No scorchio yesterday. http://forecast.weather.gov/product...p?site=NWS&product=CF6&issuedby=ATT is up to date and August has vanished again. I think I'm sensing a pattern here.

No scorchio, but only by one degree, and the heat index was above 100, so it might as well have been.

No scorchio, but there was a 100° heat index at both Camp Mabry and the airport. We're only three days away from the latest recorded scorchio on record (October 2nd) in Austin so it's quite possible we've seen our last one for the year, but I'm not putting any money on it knowing how this summer has gone up to now. For the record, today was the 90th, and last, scorchio of 2011.

No scorchio, but only by one degree, and it would have happened if not for some rain showers bringing the temperature just as the reading was about to tip over into triple digits. There was a 105° heat index at both Camp Mabry and the airport. Yesterday's average temperature was 14­° - yes, 14, not a typo - above the daily average. And still no end to it in the forecast smiley - headhurts

What's that? Next Monday? 88°? Fake news. Don't believe it.

No scorchio, but, once again, only by one degree, and there was a 100° heat index, but only at the airport. Once again the average temperature for the day was 14° above the long-term average for the date.

I had a look at today's post from last year: "I've just had to put the a/c on, a little after 7.00am, in early October smiley - headhurts"

There's hardly been a morning since at least July this year when I haven't had to put the a/c before 9am, and today will be no different.

No scorchio, and no 100° heat index at either Camp Mabry or the airport. I'm not giving up on the possibility of scorchio until that cold front arrives on Monday. We might still break a high temp record or two in the next few days.

No scorchio, and no 100° heat index at either Camp Mabry or the airport. The thermostat was showing 80° when I got up at 5.30. That's the lowest it's read for a long time. I might have to sleep under a sheet tonight.

No scorchio, and no 100° heat index at either Camp Mabry or the airport. We broke the daily maximum temperature record. I really hope we don't do that today.

As is so often the case, the first cold front of the autumn isn't quite enough to send summer packing. It's the second one that finally banishes it. But at least we'll have cooler mornings starting this week, even it gets back up into the 90s for a few days.
