I've noticed that extreme temperatures have become more common lately.

I've experienced low 110s one summer here in Oklahoma. It was noticeably hotter than the typical 100s, but it didn't feel worse, probably because getting a high RH at that sort of temperature just requires so much moisture than is available with that type of weather pattern.

Bruce:
Our heat is the worst because residential ACs are uncommon and often broken. Our homes are not made to combat heat at all, and our infrastructure can barely keep up.

Sounds kind of like the inverse of the Texas ice storm disaster this past winter.

Rothman:
My wife experienced 110+ heat at night in Jordan in a home without A/C.  High humidity.  She said she felt like she was being cooked in bed.
