Nebraska: The National Weather Service in Nebraska demonstrated the effects of the heat wave in the US state with an innovative experiment - baking biscuits inside a hot car.

In a series of tweets on Thursday, they posted pictures and updates on the biscuit experiment.

 

The experiment was conducted as an excessive heat warning had been issued for much of eastern Nebraska on Saturday, reported Fox News. The high in Omaha on Thursday was 92 degrees with a heat index of 103.

In the tweet, NWS said: “If you are wondering if it's going to be hot today, we are attempting to bake biscuits using only the sun and a car in our parking lot.”

Within 45 minutes, the biscuits began to rise.

After a few hours, they shared another update and informed Twitter that the temperature of the back seat, even in shade, had reached 62 degrees Celsius.

Meanwhile, the biscuits continued to bake and started getting a golden tinge.

After hours of baking, they hailed the experiment a success and shared pictures of the biscuits being eaten.
