Using data from 1981 to present, we average around .73 days a year 80f or above. Meaning around twice every two years.

The last four years we have had two days each year 80f or above. The most has been three days which happened 3 years. 2 days has happened 6 years. 21 years out of 31 had none thankfully.

Never ever here! I'm not even sure if we've even had a 70F low.

Check out July this year in Dubai. I can't imagine how that heat and humidity would feel without a/c.

There were 62 days this year in Dubai where the low was 32C+. Disgusting!

I voted 'couple times per year' but only because I didn't see an option for 'couple months per year' LOL

I'm actually surprised at the poll results, I thought lows in the 80's were more common. NYC has had 31 days with lows in the 80's since the year 2001. Only 2004, 2007, & 2009 came up short.

2001 - 84F, 82F, 82F, 82F
2002 - 82F, 82F, 81F, 81F, 80F, 80F, 80F, 80F
2003 - 80F
2004 - 77F
2005 - 82F, 80F, 80F
2006 - 86F, 83F, 82F, 81F, 80F, 80F
2007 - 78F
2008 - 81F
2009 - 77F
2010 - 84F, 80F, 80F
2011 - 85F
2012 - 80F
2013 - 86F, 83F, 82F

That only happens once in a while, the lows in the summer range from 75-78 usually, which is equally lame.

Very rarely but it is possible, last time it happened was in 1994. The highest ever recorded is 28.3C/83F.

Stop with the Celsius already. No one in the USA knows what it means. Our government wanted to go metric in the 1970s be we all refused. The only metric we have is imported junk.

At Midway airport a minimum temperature of 80F/27C+ happens once every 3 years on average.

Highest official minimum temperature in Chicago is 85F/29.4C, though Downtown Loop stations in the UHI near Lake Michigan, have registered even higher temps (unofficially).

No one outside of the USA cares. Use Celsius or get lost.

Three countries in the world uses the imperial system: The US, Burma and Liberia. The other 190 countries uses the metric system, as it's vastly superior and universal.
