While the official temperature recorded at the Bowie Water Plant says we have not reached 100 degrees, most local residents would disagree.
As of Friday, the highest temperature at the plant was 98 degrees on July 31.
Many of the digital thermometers around town have shown as high as 103 degrees this week. Add in the heat index it has been sweltering.
Nocona reached its first 100-degree day on Thursday as the high was 101.4 degrees recorded at the fire station.
The “Dog Days of Summer” have definitely settled in.
