TEN DAYS IN A ROW
Yesterday was the TENTH day in a row of the high temperature hitting 100 degrees or more. The last day under 100 was Friday, June 27th. The forecast for the next ten days has all days topping 100 degrees and so we might be in the middle of a 100+ streak that goes at least 20 days! BTW, there was an 8-day streak in June lasting from June 5 to June 12, but currently we have a 10-day streak starting Saturday June 28th and still going. The 110 on July 1st is the hottest single day so far this summer.

Almost got it right!

Yep, it looks like summer is over and the temperatures were a little on the wimpy side for the most part. September is a little early to see snow, but it's not exactly unheard of. Of course, snow in September don't last long as it'll heat up at least some for the next few weeks.
