Wow I was in Hartford for a seminar until 3pm today. I guess I just missed all the "fireworks", I see right now how a good chunk of CT from a Stamford/Danbury line on east looks "colorful" on the radar. I took 84 to 684 home, had gorgeous sun all the way, though where 84 met 684 around 4pm I saw some pretty menacing looking clouds to the northwest that I ended up getting south of. It's darkish right now here in southern Westchester (looks very dark to the east), but no rain (nor do I see any on the radar).

WEEKEND HEAT UPDATE: Weather Channel website is saying only Philly on south getting the heat (showed only mid 80s the whole way through for NYC on north and east), though NWS still shows low 90s for the weekend (obviously still not last weekend's furnace, but 3 days in a row is still considered a heat wave). Stay tuned!

As for 90 degree days, I agree and I would expect a trend of seeing more now than in the past though it's tricky because in addition to many years on the list of most 90+ degree days (i.e. 2010, 1999, 1993, 1991.....depending how August goes this year could be in the top 10 as well), surprisingly there are quite a few recent years on the list of LEAST 90+ degree days as well (2009, 2000, 1996, 1992).


BTW, if most of the days after today trend toward upper 80s and beyond, then you're probably right about this July ended up #3 hottest. At the time I predicted, they were talking mostly low and mid 80s until Friday, but they seem to be saying there's a good chance of at least upper 80s from Wednesday on if not tomorrow even.

Yes, it seems many coastal locations have never reached the 100 F mark. Places like Cape Hatteras, NC, Block Island, RI, parts of eastern Long Island, …etc have all never hit the 100 F mark.

As far as what is left of the month, I might be wrong, or it will be a REALLY CLOSE call for Central Park to make it to the number 3 spot. You were right, today NWS Central Park fell a little – down to 80.5 F. If it falls just 0.2 F more (80. 3 F) then it will drop into a three way tie for fourth place with 1952 and August 1980. The rest of the month should see temps into the middle/upper 80 ‘s (Wed/Thur)…then into the low 90’s Fri/Sat/Sun/Mon. Of course, at this point the numerical average for the month will be less effected since most of the month is now gone. So the last 5 days of the month are really going to be interesting.

Also, don’t know if you saw this PIS that came out yesterday:

Hartfords July average High temp is 84.9 degrees. They are currently at 87.80 for this July. 5 days left.

I circled the above 90Highs and below 60 lows.

Very funny seeing 90s and 100s and then all of a sudden next day mid 80s then the day after low 70s for the high.

@Wavehunter - Saw the PIS, thanks, quoted it like crazy in the Weather Forum. As for which one of us will be "right", I think the big determinant will be Friday and Saturday, it's a close call, as one scenario has mid 90s up through a Poughkeepsie-Hartford-Providence line. The other has it cloudy rainy and mid-upper 80s north of Philly. One thing that "helped" your cause is the high of 90 was a bit warmer than they though yesterday.

@Cambium - I wonder if Hartford ever had a year with a July average high of 90+. Unlike their low (due to being inland and having a much smaller "heat island effect"), their average high temperature is similar to Central Park (I believe both are 84.something) and the only two years that has happened at CPK is 1999 and last year (though this year was starting to come close).

I saw an article that yesterday Dallas broke their all time highest low temperature. It was 86, ironcially the only record of 85 was not only way back in 1939, but occurred in Sept. of all things. Given that for most of the NYC metro area the records are around this temp, I would've thought it would be higher down in TX

Hartford CT..
July

July 1994 was hottest on record; average temperature of 77.1F was 3.4F above normal. Thats taking the average high and average low to create the full average for the month.

The 87.80 average you see above is the High temps only. When we look at the entire month this year we're sitting at 76.2... so we're 1 degree away from breaking it.

I think if Hartford's lows stay above 72 and the Highs stay above 82 they will break it.

Edit:
July 2010 tied it
AVG. MAXIMUM ::: 88.4
AVG. MINIMUM ::: 65.9
MEAN ::: 77.1

August 2010 was 73.4 so August last year was warmer than July.

HIGHEST ::: 97 08/31
LOWEST ::: 50 08/28

RECORD HIGH TEMP 102 :::: 08/09/2001
RECORD LOW TEMP 36 :::: 08/31/1965
