While we're having fun being exasperated by the heat. We want to put it into context. The Rogue Valley is forecast to see max Temps at or above 100 degrees for 9 days in a row (starting yesterday). There have been only 3 times in our history (since 1911) where this has happened. Two of the streaks reached 10 days (August 1967 and July 1962). The 3rd reached 9 days (August 1990). The other important part of this, is that our overnight low temperatures will only reach into the mid to upper 60s to 70s. This does not give people a chance to recover at night.
