I'll was a little bored this evening at work and for a little meteorologist entertainment I was comparing the climatology data from this summer to last year and this is what I found...

JUN, JUL, AUG 2010 2009
Temp # Days # Days
60s 0 1
70s 0 17
80s 19 61
90s 51 13
100s 2 0

This Summer we are on track to be the hottest on record and we have already doubled our average 90 degree days.  While last summer was the 14th coolest on record with an average temperature (high+low/2) of 74.8 degrees and we did not hit 90 once during the month of July!

Our heat wave continues this week with highs in the upper 90s to near 100 and heat indices 105-112.  Stay cool everyone!
