We usually have a couple weeks straight of 95 to 105, depending on the year. Most of the summer is 90+. Dry though. We only get a total of about 12 inches of precipatation a year. Above 95 all the plants seem to go dormant. They quit growing and conserve energy. I shoot a sprinkler over the dahlias during the hottest part of the day to try and cool them down. It seems to help.
