Record-tying streak

August 7, 2012

  Refreshingly cool air washed over us this past weekend. It was great weather for playing outdoors, with highs in the upper 70s, low humidity and plenty of sunshine. It had been quite a while since we’d seen high temperatures in the 70s.  In fact, Friday marked the 39th consecutive day with a high temperature of 80 degrees or warmer in the Twin Cities. That tied a record. Here are the longest streaks of 80 degrees or warmer in the Twin Cities, courtesy of the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service:

    Rank        Days        End date

      1. (tie)      39 …..  8/03/2012

      1. (tie)      39 …..  8/10/1916

      3.             32 …..  7/28/1936

      4.             31 …..  7/15/1921

  After high temperatures in the 80s on Monday and Tuesday, cooler max temps in the 70s are expected for Thursday and Friday. In case you’ve lost track, 82 degrees is our average high temperature this time of the year in the Twin Cities.
