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.

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.
