Bucs Practices Hot, Hot, Hot

Which NFL teams have to battle the heat the most each summer? Compiling National Weather Service 1971-2000 average August temperatures, high temperatures, and number of 90-degree days, The Weather Channel came up with a list of the top 10 hottest NFL training camps.

Your Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the third-hottest training camp in the NFL:

During the regular season, Tampa has the league’s most 90-degree days of any NFL city without a retractable-roof or domed stadium (19 days). With an average August high of 90 degrees and morning lows in the muggy middle 70s, training camp isn’t a breeze either.

This may serve the Bucs well in their 2010 schedule. All four pre-season games are in the heat of Florida or Texas. Two of their first three regular season games are at home. The other, in potentially warm Charlotte against the Carolina Panthers.

Tampa is also the wettest NFL training camp site, on average. While taking an edge off the heat, you could argue the typical Florida thunderstorm simply adds to the humidity.
