High of 100 ties record for the date

  • Follow Weather

The thermometer reached 100 degrees at Augusta Regional Airport today, tying an 84-year-old record.

According to the National Weather Service, the century mark was reached for the first time this year at 3:21 p.m. It tied the record for the date set in 1926.

Two people were treated for heat exhaustion at University Hospital, spokeswoman Erica Cline said. Denise Parrish, of Medical College of Georgia Hospital, said one man who was overcome by heat was brought to the hospital for observation.

A representative of Doctors Hospital did not immediately return calls requesting information on treatment for heat-related conditions.

As long as my a/c keeps

As long as my a/c keeps working I will be just fine. I got a bad feeling for this area with the hurricane season looming.

It's that global warming. No,

It's that global warming. No, wait, it's called climate change. No, no, no. Remember all of the snow this winter? It's called global cooling. Are we calling it global warming again? All of this confuses me.

Insider, as I've traveled

Insider, as I've traveled down life's road, I've learned a thing or two. One, every summer there's global warming and two, it's followed by global cooling. Watch out for drowning polar bears.
