July 21, 2012: Heat Wave Continues in the Heartland
The map shows the high (max) temperatures for Saturday, July 21, 2012. Note the map has a date on it of "For 12 Hours Ending 00Z, Sunday, July 22, 2012. "Z" time is the same as GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) which is 5 hours later than CDST and 6 hours later than CST). Therefore 00Z, July 22 is 7pm Saturday, July 21 in the CDST zone.
Note that the core of the heat yesterday was centered over Nebraska with a reading of 111F in Valentine, NE.
No relief is in sight as we experience one of the most miserable summer in recent history in Nebraska.
