Damn! 400+ High Temperature Records Broken in US

  • Published on July 14th, 2011 by

It’s still mid-summer, and already over 400 individual maximum recorded temperature records have been broken in the US.

Are you starting to sweat? Or were you already?

Readers can use a handy feature on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) website to check out just how hot this country is, and how many heat records are being broken this year with a complete listing (by city) of the new and former record high temperatures. The tool includes handy filter and map features, too.

There are exactly 427 new recorded high temperatures in the US, and another 388 ties. Again, I ask, are you starting to sweat?

It is hot out there. Check out this excellent tool for a good impression of what’s going on in the climate (change) world.
