More 100 degree stats

Even with the storms today, Wichita still managed to make it to 103 degrees, marking the 34th day of triple digits in the Air Capital.

As I mentioned in previous posts, the all-time record for 100 degree days in Wichita is 50, set in 1936. Thought I'd share the "Top 4" this time:

Here's that list:

1) 50 days - 1936
2) 46 - 1980
3) 42 - 1978/1954
4) 40 - 1934

Now, here's the Wichita forecast for the next 7 days:

101, 103, 104, 106, 104, 103, 102

If we do indeed manage to hit 100 the next 7 days, that will put us up to 41 days of triples, and 2011 would be the new #4 on the list.

..and that's with only one week of August complete.

I would like to know stats on average daytime high for the summer or for July. we have to close to that record if they keep records for that.

So far this month, the average is 102.4. In 1980 the average July high was 104.9. 1954: 102.6.
