Episode Narrative A combination of high heat and humidity persisted for several days. Daytime temperatures reached the 90s to just above 100, and dew points were in the 70s. The heat index went as high as 110 degrees. Low temperatures were in the 70s, leading to some uncooled indoor locations remaining excessively warm through the night. The dangerous nature of the heat was added to by its continuing over a period of several days.
Event Narrative Temperatures reaching the 90s to just above 100, and high humidity with dew points in the 70s, caused an extended period of excessive heat. The heat index peaked at 100 to 110 degrees each day, and did not fall enough at night to provide much relief to indoor locations that were not otherwise cooled.
