How hot is it? Watch as we try to melt crayons as the temperature rises

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT/Gray news) - Friday's weather forecast calls for extreme heat and humidity for most of the country. In Omaha, Neb., temperatures will rise to 100 degrees, but feel more like 110.

CRAYON MELT UPDATE: It's a little past 1 p.m. on Friday, July 19, 2019, and our thermometer is showing 100+ degrees. Will they melt soon?

To help illustrate what that heat can do -- and to help us all make it through this hot Friday afternoon -- we've put up an outdoor livestream to see how long it will take for the sweltering heat to melt a pack of crayons.

At a few minutes past 1 p.m., some of the crayons were well above the 120-degree mark -- and some of the colors are glistening.

Crayons have a melting point between 120 and 147 degrees Fahrenheit, according to Crayola.
