Most 100 degree days in a year:
With Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s high of 101 degrees we are now in 4th place for the most 100 degree days in a year. Records go back to 1889.

Tracking the tropics:
NOAA and CSU updated their tropical forecast on Thursday and both groups still expect an above average season. The presence of La Nina, weaker Atlantic trade winds, an active west African monsoon and a strong Bermuda high helped the forecasters determine the numbers being above average. The total number of named storms and major hurricanes has decreased by one from NOAA due to some variability in the Sea Surface Temperatures across the Atlantic. No tropical development is expected in the Atlantic in the next five days. Make sure you’re prepared for the rest of our hurricane season by getting our Hurricane Tracker App.
