Ziggy, you live somewhat near the coast. Don't even think about coming to Fresno during the summer. It's already going to get near 100 on Wednesday.

And tell 'em to set the town on fire!!?? Hope you have a pool FG.. Hate to see what the fourth of July brings..
Hellfire and brimstone, no doubt..

The major reason why Texas is so hot during summer is because high pressure is situated just over Texas. This makes the air currents hot and the winds blow this towards the Texas region. See more details at http://weatherblog.abc13.com/2011/08/this-is-why-its-been-so-hot-lately.html.

U no, it wasn't that long ago that America had a big ice glacier that came from Canada all the way down to the plains. I think it's what made the plains flat. Texas was free and clear of it. I bet it had perfect weather bout 100,000,000. years ago or maybe less then that. But Texas isn't the only state that gets hot in the South. So do AR, MO, UT, & AZ. In fact all the Southern state's do. As the earth warms up all us southerners will just have to find better ways to keep cool in the summer.

All of you saying that other places than Texas are hot--STOP. You don't know hot until you're in Texas, where it will be 105 and 60% humidity.

Oh--and Mexico isn't necessarily hotter than Texas, as the poster above me so ignorantly asserted. Yeah, it's really bad in Chihuahua or Durango sometimes, but a lot of other places are a LOT cooler. At the very moment I'm writing this, it's 84 in San Antonio. 82 in El Paso. 85 in Austin. 90 in Dallas. 91 in Houston. Meanwhile, it's 64 in Mexico City. 66 in San Miguel de Allende. 68 in Ensenada. 69 in Puebla. 70 in Lake Chapala. 71 in Guadalajara. 72 in Cuernavaca.

I'd call that a LOT cooler than Texas is right now.

And the reason it's not as hot in Mexico is that all of these places get cool air from the Pacific, rather than having no relief from the burning heat of the Gulf of Mexico.
