According to WMUR, the weather conditions are venturing into dangerously hot territory this week. It is our first heat wave of the season, and she is coming in HOT (pun very much intended)!

The site goes on to explain that the National Weather Service issued an excessive heat watch for Tuesday afternoon through Thursday evening for all of Hillsborough and Merrimack Counties, as well as interior Rockingham County

The heat paired with the humidity may create temperatures that could reach well over 100 degrees. What is this, Arizona?!  The highest temps are expected on Wednesday and Thursday.

To avoid the risk of heat-related illnesses, the National Weather Service recommends drinking plenty of fluids, staying out of the sun, and checking on relatives and neighbors who may be at risk. If you are able to stay in an air-conditioned space, do it!

Any workers who spend the majority of their day outside (like roofers, post office workers, and Fedex, UPS, or Amazon drivers), check on their well-being and see if they need a Gatorade! Let's take care of each other!

This got me thinking. What is the hottest weather that New Hampshire has ever experienced?

We know that on Mount Washington, we have experienced record-breaking cold temperatures (-55 °F in 1885), but what about heat? I know we can't touch states like Arizona or California, but I'm sure we've experienced some unpleasant extremes over the years

According to U.S. state and territory temperature extremes on Wikipedia , it was 106 °F degrees in Nashua on the Fourth of July in 1911.

That is is a little too warm for a Fourth of July cookout!  I'm sure everyone stayed inside in the comfort of their AC that year. Wait a second, the first AC wasn't in a house until 1914. Those poor sweaty Granite Staters! 

Thank goodness for air conditioning this week! Lord knows we need it. What is the hottest day you can remember? Where was it?
