It's important to understand meteorological summer ends on the last day of August. If we assume a high Monday of 85 and a high Tuesday of 90 with a low Tuesday morning of 73, we would still have the hottest summer on record by average temperature. It would give us a final average of 85.74 degrees which is a full .33 of a degree above the 2nd place year of 1954.
|As of Monday August 30th... 85.88 degrees|
Also, we are on track to tie 1887 for 8th driest summer on record. This assumes no more rain Monday and Tuesday, but there are chances which would change this record. Stay tuned!
