KSAT 12 Meteorologist Creates Texas Heatwave Playlist


You know it’s hot outside when your local meteorologist comes up with a creative way to share the forecast as our days get extra repetitive. There are only a limited number of ways to tell people at home that it’s going to be hotter than the surface of the sun for the foreseeable future.

KSAT 12 meteorologist Sarah Spivey decided to sum up exactly what the Texas heat would be like if it were a playlist. She created the perfect soundtrack on Apple Music and posted the so-called album on Twitter on Saturday, July 9. Call it, Texas Heatwave Hits. (I should copyright this).

“So my husband, Michael, is a musician and one night he was like, ‘With this repeating weather, you should just make a playlist!'” Spivey told MySA to explain how the idea came about. born. “And I thought that was such a smart idea. There’s a trend on the internet right now with playlists, so it’s a game on that!”

The album begins with “Hey” by Pixies. It wouldn’t be a Texas album if we didn’t have Mr. Lone Star himself, good old Texas native Willie Nelson. Spivey definitely knew what she was doing when she added her song ‘San Antonio’ ​​from her 1968 album Texas in my soul. Of course, there has to be some Taylor Swift sprinkled in because, you know, we’re all in our feelings about the unbearable 100-degree stretch. (And for those real Texans, no matter how long you’ve lived here, we always complain about how hot it gets in the summer.)

There are 18 songs in the Apple Music playlist and the latest tracks will make you laugh in your stomach. It doesn’t get any more specific than the carefully selected songs that state “Looks Like THE Texas Heat Won’t Let Go And Will Be Here To Stay”. This is the disastrous situation that we all live together. Notice that all of these words are song titles by various artists.

Unfortunately, Spivey says there is no relief in sight.

“We’re unlikely to have any significant cooling anytime soon,” Spivey said. “Our last average 100 degree day is late August, and it’s still common for us to hit 100 degrees in September, so we still have a long way to go.”

So might as well dance to the tears and frustration (indoors, of course) with Spivey’s super heat wave soundtrack.
