Missing the heat in DV this summer

Post by Death Valley Dazed » Fri Jul 26, 2019 2:46 pm

Sadly, no summer trip this year to Death Valley so I'm living in some hot memories from the past. What's the hottest anyone of you have experienced so far this year in the park?

Here's a montage dedicated to the heat waves in the park.

A couple of 125's, I think. I was in the park for several weeks and there were a number of readings in the 120+ range but nothing anywhere near a historic high. Everyone was saying what an unusually cool summer it had been, especially after last year's record breakers. Supt. Mike loves weather records and we had to disappoint him a lot. :lol:

One theory about the cooler temps is that we are supposedly heading into a Grand Solar Minimum? BTW - I've given up on my hopes to be in DV when the 134-degree mark is broken. I don't think it will happen in what left of my lifetime.
