RICHMOND, Va. – It has been one of the hottest weeks of the year in Richmond. But not even CBS 6 meteorologist Mike Stone was prepared for the readings his weather computer spit out during CBS 6 News at Noon.

“You can see across the area now, we somehow have some kind of computer vomit here,” Stone said when his weather computer added a one before some temperatures making it a 181 degree day in Petersburg and 190 degrees in Farmville.

"They looked fine a few minutes ago," Stone promised. "The red light, live television. They decide to go all screwy on me. "

Even if we did experience 190-degree heat, it would not be the wildest weather phenomenon we've seen in recent years. Am I right?
