Friday July 22, 2011, 5:00 pm, Lowell, Massachusetts my cars external thermometer showed 113 deg. F. I’ve not seen it that high before and it felt hotter than that inside the vehicle. I drove the 30 miles to Saugus, MA and the external temperature showed 102 deg. F at 6 pm. Then went straight to a movie theater. Cool- Ahhh.
