He lives near Phoenix and here are some examples:
On June 18, 2012, he posted a screenshot of 111 F temp for Phoenix from a weather app.
On July 10th, he posted a 104 F pic from his car and said at 9:40 pm, it's still over 100 F.
On Aug 5, 2011, he posted a pic of his car showing 100 F at 9:17 pm.
On July 2, 2011, he posts a pic of his car showing 117 F.
The above Phoenician Facebook friend posted some temps yesterday.
On June 28, 2013, he posted a pic of his Prius showing it's 117 F outside at 4:07 pm (Pacific time, I believe).
On the same day, at 10:26 pm, he posted his Prius showing it's still 100 F outside at 10:15 pm, saying it was 2.5 hours after sunset. Also said it "Was still 108° in Downtown Phoenix when we left there at around 9:40pm!"
Broke a temp record today...at 1:21PM it hit 118F at PHX Sky Harbor. It could go higher later.
On this note, I noticed that per Google's weather, at ~midnight Pacific time, it says it's 102 F in Phoenix! Yow!
Hope Andy Palmer makes a trip to Phoenix in this summer, as folks at the Phoenix meeting suggested.
Side note: For those unfamiliar w/the micro-climates in the SF Bay Area, the local news is forecasting these temps for Tuesday, as an example:
San Jose: 100 F
SF: 79 F (kinda warm for them, actually)
Half Moon Bay: 69 F
Dublin: 103 F
Livermore: 105 F
Santa Cruz: 79 F
