We have had 7 days (so far) of temperatures at or above ninety degrees.  Yes it’s been hot, but nothing like 1988.  That year was a scorcher.  We had 34 days at or above ninety degrees that summer.  Here is how it breaks down.

  • May: 1 day with a high of 90°
  • June: 14 days with highs at or above 90°.  We hit 98° twice that month.  Longest stretch of consecutive 90° days was 5. 
  • July: 9 days with highs at or above 90°.  We hit 98° three times that month.  Longest stretch of consecutive 90° days was 5. 
  • August: 10 days with highs at or above 90°.  We hit 99° twice that month.  Longest stretch of consecutive 90° days was 4.
