As the summer heat finally phases out and the cool breeze of autumn takes its place, it’s probably safe to say that most of us are relieved to say “so long!” to the scorching temperatures we were faced with these past few months. However, people in certain parts of the country aren’t as lucky. If you’ve ever wondered what parts of America get the warmest weather, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the hottest places in America.
If you’ve ever visited Nevada, you’re probably aware of just how hot it can get during the day. With daytime temperatures hovering at around 85 degrees, spending time outdoors in Nevada can be brutal. As if that doesn’t sound extreme enough, the hottest ever recorded temperature in Nevada was a scorching 125 degrees on July 29th, 1994. Luckily, there are plenty of air conditioned casinos to visit if you’re getting a little sweaty outdoors.
It’s no secret that the state of Arizona is a warm place, and anyone who lives there or has ever visited can attest to that. Average temperatures in Arizona in the summer tend to hover around the mid-90s, even reaching close to 100 degrees during particularly sweltering days. Being that Arizona is considered a desert, the weather can be great for older people or those with arthritis. However, the often-brutal heat in Arizona is something you might want to consider if you’re thinking about moving to the Glendale apartments.
Florida is another state that’s often met with scorching hot weather. Though a wildly popular vacation destination for spring breakers, families, and retired people alike, the extremely hot and humid days in Florida can force many people to stay indoors with the air conditioning blasting for most of the day. While things tend to cool off a little in the nighttime, you’ll rarely catch a nice cool breeze in the Sunshine State.
They say that everything is bigger in Texas, including the number on the thermometer! Texas is a great state for many reasons, but it’s hot and humid temperatures can pose a problem for those who hate the heat. Much of the state exists in a subtropical humid climate, meaning the summers tend to be warm and humid while things cool off a bit during the winter. Don’t be fooled, though — even during the winter months, the temperature rarely falls below 30 degrees, which probably won’t seem that cold to people living up north.
