Well, this summer’s record list just got a little bit longer today, with the National Weather Service reporting that the temperature at the Woodley Island office hit 78 degrees just after 1 p.m. today, taking away another title.
So far this summer, the coast has broken a few records, including the June 11 heatwave where the mercury hit 85 degrees
— taking the hottest day ever in June since records began title — and Aug. 13 when another daily record
was set at 71 degrees.
