The hottest temperature I have personally experienced was 115 at Luke AFB in Arizona while watching the Air Force Thunderbirds. This was almost 35 years ago so strong sunscreens were not available. That severe sunburn likely started me down the path of the numerous skin cancers I have had removed

I lived in Vegas from 1984 – 1986. I had to look up some weather records to confirm this but the average high in August 1985 was nearly 105 degrees. We had a few days that were easily in the 110s when I lived there
