Baltimore making 100-degree history
90-degree days mounting towards historic levels in D.C.

But more notable is the fact it reached 100 for the fifth time this month - the most ever 100-degree occurrences for any month in Baltimore in recorded history. Not only that, yesterday marked Baltimore's seventh 100 degree or higher day in 2010 - tying 1988 and 1930 for the most ever in a summer. And we've still got all of August.
Here in Washington, at Reagan National (DCA), we've now had 42 90+ degree days. This puts us even with 1994 for the the highest number of such days in a year through July 25. The most 90 degree days in a calendar year is 67 in 1980 - meaning we've still got a ways to go...
