Dulles breaks 90-degree record

By Dan Stillman

* Full Forecast through weekend *

D.C.'s official weather station -- Reagan National Airport -- is still three 90-degree days away from breaking the record of 67 days with a high temperature of 90 or above, set in 1980. But the deed is already done out at Dulles Airport. Thursday's high of 93 at Dulles not only tied the record high for the day, but put Dulles over the top for most 90+ days in a year. From the National Weather Service...

WASHINGTON DULLES HAS EXPERIENCED 56 DAYS OF TEMPERATURES REACHING 90 DEGREES OR HIGHER THIS YEAR. THIS BREAKS THE RECORD FOR THE MOST NUMBER OF 90 DEGREE OR WARMER DAYS IN A CALENDER YEAR...WHICH WAS PREVIOUSLY 55 DAYS IN 1980.

Hi aludholtz1 -
