Metro residents feeling the heat, humidity

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - There's really only one way to describe today: Sticky. For the first time this year, the dew point is in the seventies. People say it's tough working today -- not because of the temperature, but because it's just so uncomfortable out here.

Fargo-Moorhead (WDAY TV) - There's really only one way to describe today: Sticky. For the first time this year, the dew point is in the seventies. People say it's tough working today -- not because of the temperature, but because it's just so uncomfortable out here.

Lori Stenerson's serving up steaming hot Broadway Dogs

Lori Stenerson – Broadway Dogs: "This cart is 300 degrees."

She's had to keep moving to get her mind off of the mugginess.

Lori Stenerson: "We've been really busy today, don't even think about it."

Although it's not the worst she's seen…

Lorei Stenerson: "Last year I had heat exhaustion. I was really sick with a migraine headache, couldn't move for 24 hours."

Stenerson says living in the Midwest, we signed up for rough Weather.

Lori Stenerson: "You have to be really tough to live in North Dakota.”

She's not the only one sweating it out.

Barry Maves - Fargo: "Muggy - definitely."

Some say they appreciate the change of pace.

Glenward Jones - Fargo: "Our winters are very rough and with this type of weather, it's a beautiful contrast.

Over in Moorhead at the Watercolor Society's Art Show, vendors are holed up under hot tents. Surprisingly for these women, wool is a hot seller on such a warm day.

Diane Schill – Wooly Girls: "We've sold quite a bit actually, hats."

The Wooly Girls minding these mittens don't seem to mind the mugginess.

Janet Jacobson – Wooly Girls: "Since we do raise sheep, and do a lot of fencing, and chasing sheep we're used to being outside."

Besides, they say they have a sure-fire weapon against the weather.

Janet Jacobson: "Lots of water."

Now we didn't reach record temperatures, and our StormTRACKER Meteorologists say it's certainly not in the top ten of the hottest days we've had. It's just when the dew-point soars, outside becomes a sticky mess.
