Fort Collins, CO Weather Forecast from Weather Underground

There have been twenty-five August 30 temperatures over 88ºF since 1895, including 94 degrees in 1898. The weather is not only not unprecedented, but it is actually pretty close to normal. The last two years were hotter, and nobody cancelled school.

    My father was an Air Force officer, and I attended many different schools in the south. Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Texas and Virginia. Not one school had air conditioning in the classrooms, and not once did we ever cancel a single class due to heat. And noone died.

    Getting up to a brisk 92Plus was Normal for years when I was In Houston area. Need to shut the whole area down if this is the new standard. Of course 50 % of our Gas/ Oil comes from here But worry not. It’s not needed as we all hide inside from the Heat. Till the A/C stops no electric No Oil or Coal for the plant. Got to love Liberals Think everything out for 1- 2 Microseconds before opening Mouth. Mr. Biden Your next.

    This stuff had gotten so over-the-top ridiculous. We have a heat advisory here in Nashville, because our high temperature today is forecast to be, …. wait for it … 92F … OMG!!! .. my shoes will probably spontaneously ignite! … Are you freaking kidding me? WTF? This is Tennessee in August!!! … 92F is COLD not hot!

    Freaking dipshits .. I am so sick and tired of this stupid fear-mongering bullshit.

    HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – From Huntsville to Mobile, summer temperatures have been cooler than normal this year.

    In fact, the summer of 2013 will be listed as one of the coolest summers in the past 131 years, according to state climatologist John Christy, director of the Earth Systems Science Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

    Great lesson to teach kids. Too hot to go to work? Sure stay home.

    What ever happened to rugged individualism which was the cornerstone of our country for 200 years.

    88 degrees and a dewpoint in the low-to-mid 50s? That seems rather pleasant! Houston hasn’t had a day like that in since the first half of May!

    Students in Phoenix at that temp are just taking off their winter jackets…but still wear their spring coats to ward off the cold 🙂

    Perhaps some school administrators wanted a longer holiday weekend……..

    Are you sure you don’t live in the People’s Header Republic of Boulder?

    It finally reached 100 today at St. Louis and Kansas City. It is too bad that Missouri finally lost their record for having no 100 degree days this summer. It is like losing a perfect game with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th.

    Nevertheless, Missouri will still average below normal for August. What does this prove? It proves you have cold spells and hot spells. Weather is variable. Very profound!

    You aren’t being very considerate. They had the day off to show support in solidarity with those that did have 90 degree weather….

    ..that and the teacher’s union figured it be a good excuse to extend the weekend. [Who wants to work before labor day?]

    I went through the 6th grade in Dallas, Tx without AC. Granted this was the 1970s before global warming. We didn’t have AC in the house till 1977. What a bunch of wusses we are raising.
