OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — It might sound like the answer to one of Johnny Carson's monologue jokes or a colloquialism used by Ross Perot but the National Weather Service says it's hot enough to cook biscuits in your car.
In a Tweet, they posted an image of biscuits sitting in a hot car and within 45 minutes say the biscuits began to rise.
Their last update shows the temperature of the pan hit a whopping 175 degrees and serves as a reminder that hot cars pose a danger to people and animals during the dog days of summer.
Biscuit update: the pan has reached 175 degrees in 60 minuted and the tops of the biscuits are at 153.— NWS Omaha (@NWSOmaha) July 18, 2019
This is a good time to remind everyone that your car does in fact get deadly hot. Look before you lock! On average 38 children die in hot cars each year. Don't be a statistic! pic.twitter.com/OBKK1q1F8T
If you find yourself caught in a heat-related emergency, or wreck while out on the road, the Nebraska State Patrol says you can reach them by dialing #55 or by dialing 1-800-525-5555.
