Now that summer is winding down, it's time to take a look back. Here's a list of all the 90-degree days in Pittsburgh sorted by temperature:

93 - July 6
93 - July 7
93 - July 23
93 - July 24
93 - August 10
93 - August 11
93 - September 2

92 - July 8
92 - August 31

91 - July 5
91 - August 29
91 - August 30

90 - July 28
90 - August 14
90 - September 1

Pittsburgh had 15 days of 90-degree heat this summer, tied with 2007, and triple the number of 90-degree days in 2008 and 2009 combined. The maximum temperature was 93, set on seven different days, most recently September 2. This is the hottest maximum temperature since 2005, which had a maximum of 94.

In the last 10 years, 2002 remains the hottest summer, with 24 days of 90-degree heat, two days of 95-degree heat, and a maximum temperature of 95.

Where do they get these temperatures? I threw an egg on the sidewalk and it fried up faster than in a pan on the stove. My outdoor thermometer is in the shade and often reads over 100.

Yea while the temp out the Airport reads that...In the city is almost always 10 degree's hotter.

They really should take temps in one of the parks....Use Schenely, Frick or Highland...Hell even the Point would be better.

"Temperature at the airport is 88 degrees, which is stupid because I don't know anybody who lives at the airport. Downtown is much hotter. Downtown's on fire, man."

It should be hot, it's summer. Last summer was largely forgettable because it was so cool and wet. It's Pittsburgh - you know it is going to be overcast from November - early April, so warm days are welcome to me.

Yeah, I used to be a weather buff and could never understand why the "official" readings for the CITY of Pittsburgh were taken 20 miles away in Findlay Township. Rainfall and EVERYTHING can be a world of difference. But, that's the way it is across the nation, so it's not just a Pittsburgh thing!

It wasn't unbearable or anything--and this from a guy who doesn't like hot weather and doesn't have central air. Still, I prefer more 70s and less 90s in my summers.

They have to measure it somewhere! You can get on www.wunderground.com and look at measurements for different weather stations in an area.

For someone who used to dread a few days when it hit 100, and many days that hit 95+, those look like good numbers.
