June 2018 was the 3rd warmest in the US, 18th in Ohio.

The warm June helped us get an a few 90 degree days, but the month of July already has been more giving.  Through the first third of the month of July, we have had the 2nd most 90 degree days only behind the crazy hot 2012.

For the record….

Since 2000, we have produced on average, 14 days with 90 degree heat in July-September here in Central Ohio.  We average 7 in July, 5 in August, and 2 in September.  Last year we had a hot finish to September to play catch-up.

Overall, the average since 2000, is 19 days per year, with the overall average since record keeping started in the 1800s at 20 days per year.

The most was in 1955 with 49 days, and 2012 with 48 days.
