How Long Will Midwest Heat Hang Around?

Need further proof that the Midwest has been experiencing higher-than-normal temperatures throughout October? It was 100 ˚F in Dodge City, Kan., yesterday. 100 ˚F!

In fact, according to the National Weather Service’s Dodge City station, it was the first time a 100 ˚F temperature had been recorded there in October since 1874.

Dodge City isn’t alone, either. According to weather.com, the latest wave of hot October weather could break as many as 50 records around the U.S.

Summertime temperatures won’t hang on forever, though. Watch the accompanying video for AgDay meteorologist Mike Hoffman’s assessment of what weather we’ll have in store moving forward.

  Must have been a lot of suvs and green house gas in 1874 as well.
