HEAD'S UP CYCLISTS: Hotter 'N Hell 100 Looks to be Hotter 'N Hell

It's Tuesday Evening, August 21, 2018 and we are just hours away from folks arriving in Wichita Falls and Texoma to ride in the Hotter 'N Hell 100 on Saturday and enjoy all the other festivities leading up to the big day.

The big question is what will the weather do?

I now have a more refined idea of what we can expect on Saturday and all the days of Hotter 'N Hell 100.

First of all it's going to be hot.  How hot you ask. . . well hot enough to get near a few records for those days, but probably not setting any new records.




Let's take a look at the 'current' weather forecast for all of the days of Hotter 'N Hell (as of Tuesday evening, August 21, 2018).

Events get underway on Thursday, August 23, 2018 and continue through Sunday, August 26, 2018.  Here's the daily forecast with the record high for each day listed:

Thursday, August 23, 2018:
Mostly sunny and hot.  Highs:  99°-103°.
(Record High:  106°)

Friday, August 24, 2018:
Mostly sunny and hot.  Highs:  101°-105°.
(Record High:  107°)

Saturday, August 25, 2018:
Mostly sunny and hot.  Highs:  100°-104°.  Wind S 12-17 mph, G20+ mph.
7a Start Time:  Mostly clear.  Temperature near 77°.
(Record High:  105°)

Sunday, August 26, 2018:
Mostly sunny and hot.  Highs:  99°-103°.
(Record High:  106°)

As the next couple of days go by the forecast will be refined and produce a more confident result.  However, at this point it doesn't appear that much will change except for the possibility that the high temperatures could increase just a bit each day.

Stay tuned here!
