The National Weather Service in Milwaukee says despite temperatures over 100 degrees Thursday, it was not hot enough to fry an egg outside.
The hot weather “eggsperiment” took place at the NWS office just before 4 p.m., during peak heating.
They say the pavement temperature on the parking lot soared to between 120 and 130 degrees. However, even after three hours the egg was still mostly uncooked.
The Library of Congress says the experiment is unlikely to ever work, as surface temperatures would need to reach 158 degrees for an egg to become firm.
