Imaginary Record Heat In The East

The dreaded “heat index” at work.

Eastern Seaboard Braces for Possible Record-Breaking Heat Wave – WSJ

Of the one hundred hottest days in the Northeastern US, seventy-one occurred before 1956, and 80 occurred with CO2 below 350 PPM. The last hot weather occurred in 2011, right before I moved to Maryland.

The five hottest days in the Northeast were 7/3/1911, 7/4/1911, 7/10/1936, 7/5/1911 and 8/7/1918.

Heat in New York City peaked more than 60 years ago, and has been declining ever since.


Nothing new about these exaggerations though – people have been doing it for as long as they have been able to speak.


every season is sure to be ” extraordinary,” almost every month one of the driest or wettest, or windiest, within or hottest, ever known. Much observation, which ought to correct a tendency to exaggerate, seems in some minds to have rather a tendency to increase it.
