Endless Summer Ends . . . Finally!
Our last 100 degree plus day was almost two weeks ago (102F), so I'm calling summer officially over. I penned a couple of "whine" posts in the past few months, complaining how hot and dry this summer was.
"Do you have any numbers to back up your claims?" you ask.
"Why yes, yes I do. Let's take a look, shall we?"
Most consecutive days over 100 degrees:
43 days in 1980.
This year- 49 days.
Most days over 100 degrees:
Average- 16 days
Previous record- 63 days in 1980.
This year- 90 days
And my favorite!
Most days over 105 degrees:
Average- 4 days
Previous record- 12 days in 1980
This year- 32 days
