Default You know it's too hot to throw discs when...

a disc sits on the ground for more than a couple minutes and it's too hot to hold when you pick it up.

I was throwing discs today and a couple errantly found the parking lot, and by the time I picked them up they were so hot I had to drop them as soon as I picked them up. That's just not right, lol.

Where are you that it's that hot? Occasionally gets like that in Tri-Cities(south central WA) but not until later July.

That's why I throw mine in the water every few throws...to cool them off. Yeah, that's the ticket.

WA doesn't even have real humidity either.

just use the rain flap or cover on your bag to keep them from baking in the sun. I putt with black wizards and its been averaging around 115 here. I just make sure to keep my discs covered when theyre not being used.

It gets like that here in SoCal. I have a number of blue star plastic discs that get too hot to pick up if you leave them sitting for too long.
