Dallas meteorologist Pete Delkus said during his forecast that “everyone in McKinney is dead.”
Delkus, the Chief Meteorologist for WFAA-TV in Dallas, Texas, made the bold statement on the network’s Thursday night broadcast.
He hilariously mocked a typo on the screen while discussing the heat index in the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
In McKinney, the heat index apparently reached 101,105.
“Everyone in McKinney is dead. The heat index in McKinney is, what is that, ‘101,105,’” Delkus said.
“It’s hot in McKinney!” he exclaimed.
“Jesse Hawila – I thought he was on paternity leave. He’s sabotaging me again. 105 in Corsicana. The heat index in Meridian is 110,” Delkus continued.
“So we’ll fix that. Probably the heat index in McKinney’s about 105,” he added.
While the heat index in Texas is nowhere around the ‘100,000’ range, climate alarmists will try to fearmonger the public about ‘record temperatures.’
CNBC wrote in June:
Climate change is causing temperatures to rise in Texas. Average daily minimum temperatures have risen from 51.9 F in 1970 to 54.2 F in 2020 — a change of about 2.3 F, which is roughly in line with the overall pace of warming in the state.
“Everything’s been going up at about the same rate — daily minimums, daily maximums, winter versus summer,” Nielsen-Gammon said. “We’re now 2 degrees above the 20th century average in all seasons.”
Via Texas Tribune:
Record-breaking heat is becoming the new normal in Texas, an analysis of temperature data by The Texas Tribune shows, as climate change steadily warms the planet and shifts the range of typical temperatures higher.
A dangerous heat wave this month has brought three weeks of 100-degree temperatures from the state’s border with Mexico all the way to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. The heat wave has shattered records and prompted excessive heat warnings across most of the state.
Such heat waves — and the record-breaking temperatures they bring — are becoming more common and severe due to climate change, scientists told the Tribune.Advertisement
Over the last 10 years, there were more than 1,600 days when a heat record was matched or broken at one of 22 weather stations across Texas. That’s more than 1,000 more record-breaking days than the 561-day average at those stations in the decades prior to 2013, the Tribune’s analysis found.
Texas during the summer is HOT!
That’s the norm.
Take the proper precautions to protect yourself from the heat.
And don’t allow the climate alarmists to push their fear tactics.
