Will We Break 100 This Summer?

I am reasonably sure that we will not be breaking the 100 degree mark by the end of this month, assuming of course that the forecast is correct. That is quite a contrast to last year when we had seven 100 degree days by the end of July and a number of other days at 99. The 30 year normal value for 100 degree days during July is just under 5 and so far the warmest we have been is 96 degrees. So far there have not been any complaints about the lack of 100 degree weather, but one has to wonder if it will continue. Since the month of August typically has the most 100 degree days averaging nearly 6 days and since last summer we had 17 of them, I am not about to go out on that limb just yet. However, it was just a few years ago, 2004 to be exact, when we last had a summer with no 100 degree days. There have been 15 such summers without a single 100 degree day since records began back in 1905, so it is not all that unusual. If we keep getting enough shower activity to keep everything green, maybe, just maybe we can make it through this summer as well. We will let you know in October!
