More on the lack of 90s this summer

Following up with Greg’s post from earlier today, I thought I’d share some more factoids about our lack of 90s so far this summer season.

He noted that our average yearly total of 90+ days is 13 and that, this year, we’ve only had 2 – both coming in June.

So, I thought I’d compare our summer so far with our most recent summers going back to 2010.

Remember, the summer season according to the weather record books begins on June 1.  So, for this post, I’m considering temps from June 1 through July 22 in my calculations.  If you look at the summers of 2010, 2011 and 2012, you’ll see that by this date in each of those years, we had already surpassed our “typical” amount of 90s for the year.  But, last year and this year, we are far from that total with our amount of 90s only in the single digits.  With more cool air in sight, the potential for any additional 90s this month is looking slim.

    Its getting a bit annoying that this is the bar set to compare what kind of summer we have had, its been a great summer and if you love heat the rest of the U.S. is hot go to florida or arizona.

    If this Summer ends up with 90s set exclusively in June, the area may set a record for the earliest final 90 degree day of a calendar year.
