You Think Today Was Hot…
We're experiencing another heatwave this week with temps in the mid-90's, but this is nothing compared to the temperature on August 7, 1918.
One hundred years ago today was Philadelphia's hottest day in recorded history. According to knoji.com, the temperature hit 106 degrees. The closest we've gotten to that temp in recent years is 104 degrees in 2011. And accuweather.com says that we have yet to hit 100 degrees this year (although my car disagrees and who are you going to believe)?
Enjoy the heat and be thankful you weren't around on February 9, 1934, when the temperature in Philly was a record minus 11 degrees. (Source: jcweather.com)
