Today is the 31st anniversary of Cleveland’s ALL-TIME Record High Temperature of 104°F which was set in 1988. Do YOU remember what you were doing that day? According to André Bernier, it was a Saturday. The WJW-TV staff picnic was scheduled for that day in Hinckley, Ohio. André was monitoring NOAA WeatherRadio to see if Cleveland set a new all-time record high temperature. When it was announced, André yelled over to Dick Goddard to tell him that Hopkins hit 104°F. Dick didn’t believe him and thought he was just joking. By the fourth time, Dick’s response was simply: “Really?????”
What’s also notable is that 60 hours later, we set a record low!
We went 14 days without a day at/above 80 prior to Sunday’s 82 degree high. The last time we had a stretch longer WITHOUT a day at/above 80 degrees IN JUNE: June 6 through June 24…1958…19 days
There is a slight chance of rain tomorrow otherwise we have several dry days on tap with summer temps sticking around all week.
