We're No. 1 -- for worst summer of 2010
The Weather Channel has named the five cities across the country that experienced the brunt of this summer's record-breaking heat. Guess who won, or lost depending on your point of view?
That's right D.C., we had the worst summer of 2010, according to the The Weather Channel. We had 63 days of 90 degree or above temperatures as of Tuesday, the end of meteorological summer. (And while summer is officially ending Wednesday night, we could see a few more 90 degree or above days this week, according to The Capital Weather Gang.)
The other cities in the top five: Little Rock, Arkansas; Des Moines, Iowa; Brownsville, Texas; and Los Angeles.
And speaking of hot weather, we'll be announcing the result of our Summer Weather Contest - Guess-how-many-90+degree-days-we'll-have by the end of meteorological summer, Sept. 21. More than 100 people entered and 11 people selected the magic number -- 63.
