95-101 this weekend. With the humidity here, it should feel hotter than the AZ State regional who is looking at the same forecasted temps.

They are forecasting 100. 99. 98 for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday in Austin, TX plus a 10% chance on rain Saturday and 30% chance on rain Sunday so the humidity should be pretty good as well.

Plus UT has a turf field...which is hotter than natural grass...it should be a real hot one in Austin.

Anyone who has never been to Columbia, SC simply cannot have an appreciation for how hot it gets there. Miserable is an absolute understatement.

In the summertime the only thing that separates Columbia from Hell is a screen door.

I just checked the weather for all the regionals and the competition is heated. The highs today are mid 90's or above at all but three sites, with only 2-3 of the 13 expected to see any relief (high down to around 90).

Welcome to summer in the South!

Following several weeks of violent storms, the entire South is now experiencing much above normal temperatures approaching record-levels for early June.

When your expected "cool" spots are Charlottesville and Clemson, you know you have a problem.

Here in Chapel Hill, we are stage orange air quality for ozone and small particulates, and we still have fairly high pollen levels.

And there is still the artificial surface issue in Austin.

At the University of Missouri they have measured 173 degree surface temperatures on synthetic fields on 98 degree days, compared to 105 degrees for natural grass.
http://www.plantmanagementnetwork.org/pub/ats/news/2005/synthetic/

A BYU study found that synthetic surface temperature is on average 86.5 degrees higher than natural turf
http://aces.nmsu.edu/programs/turf/documents/brigham-young-study.pdf

A UNLV study have found synthetic surfaces to be 69 degrees hotter than natural turf
http://grasssyntheticinfo.com/2009/01/synthetic-grass-surface-temperature-research/

So Columbia may be "hotter" for the fans....but I think Austin is going to be "hotter" for the players as they will be at surface level.

There is definitely going to be some hot regionals. Houston will be pretty miserable, heat smog & humidity don't mix well.

I think Texas has a huge advantage with the heat. Besides a relatively weaker regional, two teams are from the northern US. It will definitely take a toll on them. Disch-Falk field is pretty much an oven

I guess this is the trade off for not having several regionals ravaged by rain. Usually, there is at least one regional that ends up getting shaken up thanks to rain storms, but this year, we have several regionals with heat indexes well over 100.
