    Yes, it was hot in 1980. But did you hear about 1936?

    Texas was even hotter in 1936. But there wasn't as much talk about it. On Aug. 12, 1936, at the height of the world-renowned Texas Centennial fair in Dallas and the competing Frontier Centennial in Fort Worth, temperatures across the state climbed into the 110s and near Wichita Falls, to a record 120. But back then, in the year of America's worst heat wave, a hot month in Texas wasn't big news. From a check of archives, neither the Star-Telegram nor The Dallas Morning News wrote much about the 100-degree days during either Centennial, which drew more than 7 million visitors combined.

The last time Dallas-Fort Worth saw 110 degrees occurred on Aug. 2, 2011. It's happened only six times since the National Weather Service started keeping records in 1898. “It's a pretty rare event,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Dennis Cain. The heat was already being felt on Thursday. At Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. A record was set at 3:42 p.m. when the temperature soared to 108 degrees, breaking the previous high of 107 set in 1925. All of North Texas remains in an excessive
