Friday was expected to be the hottest day of the heat wave that has scorched much of New England for the past week. In some areas, temperature highs could top out around 100 degrees.

Jim and Margery tackled the summer heat on Boston Public Radio today (from their air conditioned studio). They wanted to know how hot it is where you are. Send us pictures of your thermometer, name, and location to BPR [at] wgbh [dot] org, and we'll add them to our slideshow.
