Two 100-Degree Days Down, A Whole Crapload To Go.

The good news first: 2012's first 100-degree day in Dallas came a little bit later than the first 100-degree day in 2011's record-setting 71 days with triple-digit heat temperatures.

This year's first foray into 100-degree heat came yesterday, a full 11 days after the first arrival of such temperatures last year.

Now the bad news (brace yourself): This could be the year we top 1980's run of 42 straight 100-degree days (last year is the second of all-time with 40).

Today will be Dallas' second straight 100-degree day, and, from the looks of the 10-day forecast, that much is going to be par for course for the foreseeable future. Only two of the coming 10 days look to have a high temperature of less than 100 (Sunday and Monday of next week are currently predicted to have chilly highs of 99).

Temperatures today and tomorrow, meanwhile, are guessed to hit 106 and 107, respectively.

Obviously, we have no idea for sure if this is the beginning of a record-setting run. But we know this much: It's going to be hotter than hell in Dallas this week. Literally.
