LONDON, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 09: The sun sets on the London skyline viewed from an upper floor of a newly constructed skyscraper, The Leadenhall Building, on September 9, 2014 in London, England. The skyscraper, located in the City of London, has been dubbed the 'Cheesegrater' for its distinctive shape. The building stands at 224 meters high and was designed by 'Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners'. (Photo by Oli Scarff/Getty Images)

A lot of cities are experiencing a heat wave at the moment. But for some parts of the country, these high temperatures are a normal summer occurrence, and in some places it can be truly unbearable.

  • 24/7 Wall Street just came out with their list of the 50 Hottest Cities In America.
  • Cities on this list reach temperatures of 90 degrees or more for an average of 67 days or more each year, and in some it’s more than double that.
  • Texas has the most cities on the list, with 16, followed by Florida with eight.
  • Topping the list is Phoenix, Arizona, which has, on average, 169 days of 90+ temperatures each year.
  • The normal mid-summer high in Phonix is 106, with the highest temperature on record being 122.2.

For the record I worked in 4 of the top 50 cities; Memphis, Tucson, Sacramento and Little Rock Charlotte did not make the list!
