I think the question is straightforward and easy to understand, but I can easily understand how people are getting confused.

This is still rather tricky as that might imply the highest temperature recorded at night i.e when it's dark, as opposed to the 24-hour low.

Perhaps a better way to phrase this question would be: what is the highest minimum temperature ever recorded in your city?

It's true, and to us whose native language isn't English, it can be a bit harder to understand. But, reading the OP and the whole thread one would notice that this wasn't about the absolute high and low temperatures recorded.

Couldn't find an exact reading, but the highest low I've ever experience was 77 F in 2011 I believe.

Did you not have any over 80F last year? I thought New Jersey has nights similar to NYC?

85 F on July 14, 1954 for Nashville, TN (nearest major weather station). For White House, probably 83 or so.

26.0ºc 78.8 F
August 4th 1987

For Portugal the record is from july 26th 2004 in Faro with 32.2C or 90 F, I still remember the news showing thousands and thousands of people sleeping in the beach.

It could still be in the 80s after midnight, but an absolute low at or above 80 F is very unlikely. Far less of a heat effect in the suburbs and rural areas.
