If I'm not mistaken, the state record is 105 in Danbury in 1991, that was at an official NWS weather station (the airport there).

The 106 you show (and the 108 in Milford you quoted) probably has to be verified by the NWS. It doesn't mean it's not true (LOTS of state records are at unofficial secondary "spotter" weather stations, though in many cases it's because they occurred in the first half of the 20th century which they're a bit more lenient for some reason (for example, I'm quite suspect of the NY State record of 108 in 1926 in Troy, near Albany, as Albany "only" recorded 100 and no other "official" station in the northeast was over 100......the "real" record is probably the 107 recorded at LaGuardia Airport on July 3, 1966 as it was 103 in Central Park and 105 in Newark that day....even Bridgeport on the water hit 100)).


And I think they're going to really be on the lookout this time. WCBS News Radio 88 noted today that the high so far initially was 106 at Newark, which would not be the NJ state record but would be the city/airport's record (they have a lot of 105 "ties" going from the 1930s to the 90s, including the 1966 day I note above) but the NWS checked it out and said there was an error and the "high" is really 103 (still a record for the date). And that's at one of their OFFICIAL stations with manned gov't personnel.

The fact that the 104 in Baltimore, well south of CT, is the highest reading so far means the NWS is going to be quite suspect of secondary "spotter" stations for state records. The 101 reading at Bradley will help it's cause but the fact that much closer Danbury "only" got to 98 so far and Bridgeport isn't even 95 won't help.

But touchee to Snowman27, who in May said on this thread it would be a hot summer.

An interesting side note that shows that we've actually had some cool summers lately, I was visiting some relatives in northeast PA this long weekend and a local TV station noted there that if they get 3+ 90-deg or more days in a row out of this it will be their first heat wave in FOUR YEARS! (they are in the mountains and are usually a bit cooler than even rural, inland parts of CT).

Hate to post twice, but this site shows all the Tri-State area high temps and records (even Bridgeport, which I said in my last post didn't get to 95 yet got to 98 and tied its record for the date) and notes the problem at Newark that I mentioned in my last post:

I'm pretty sure Hartford broke their record too.

Thank You. I say so many things at different points it's hard to remember what I said. LOL But thanks for remembering.,..I did mention that when I noticed El Nino was ending and it was heading towards Neutral Phase. Plus the way the weather was acting in May.

Yes, past summers have been cool and I know this from the way my garden had looked past 2 years.... You have to see it now....WOW...LOL Dark Green leaves and explosion growth. Watered them 3 times today.

If La Nina stays weak...we're gonna be in for one fridgid winter!! But lets wait till September to make that call.

Oh, hey Snowman, why'd you change your name? I was wondering who this "Cambium" guy with 800 posts who suddenly appeared on this forum was

Found nothing on a potential state record in Norwalk or Milford, but this article: Record Heat in Connecticut | NBC Connecticut (http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/weather/stories/Mercury-Rising-97862899.html - broken link) says that Bradley tied it's all-time high of 102 (since they're not saying it's Hartford's all-time high, I'm guessing that Brainard and/or if a "city office" station took readings before Bradley came to be had a higher temperature at one time.....though the Weather Channel's daily averages and record highs and lows seem to include years that pre-date BDL so it very well may have tied the all-time high temperature for Hartford).

Speaking of which, I looked it up, the state record set in Danbury was actually 106 on July 15, 1995.

It was 104 according to my car thermometer when I was driving home. To my un-airconditioned house. Without the AC on in the car, because there's this really nasty rattle under the hood and I'm afraid the vibrations will cause the catalytic converter to fall off while I'm driving.

Inside the house it was a balmy 98. Joy.

Weather Channel says that 102 in Hartford tied it's ALL-TIME high, presumably for all locations in the areas (i.e. Bradley vs. Brainard, etc.):

Anyone else tired of the warm, humid weather?

All these days straight of high 80s - low 90s with dewpoints 67 or above... I've had enough for a little while. And yet we're getting another week plus.

Amen. Can you imagine how nice last July felt? The dewpoints are a double whammy...the nights/morning have not been getting below 70 F for a long time.

I am so thankful it rained today. My lawn and gardens needed it. My lawn looks terrible.
