Wed, 03 Aug 2011 11:06:05 GMT — This year has been one season of weather extremes after another; including tornadoes, blizzards, heavy rain and now a heat wave. Temperatures were in the 90's most of July, and these first few days of August have been the hottest of the entire year. During the blizzard, Missourians called the storm everything from Snowmagedden to the Snowpocalypse. Now we want you to name the heat wave in our Twitter hashtag of the day. So head to twitter and use the hashtag #nametheheatwave and give us your best heat wave name. Tonight at 10, we'll choose some to share.
