Sure, It Was Hot, But 97 Fell Shy Of 1964 Record

June 11, 1993|By Staff Report

Whew!

Temperatures soared into the upper 90s for a second straight day yesterday, but here's a cooling thought: It's been hotter. By a degree.

Yesterday's high temperature in Baltimore was 97 -- one degree short of the record set on June 10, 1964.

And the temperature on Wednesday was 98, also one degree shy of the record from June 11, 1984.

The National Weather Service said yesterday was the hottest day of the year at Atlantic Coast beaches in the region as the westerly wind overwhelmed the sea breeze, allowing temperatures to reach the upper 80s and low 90s.

Slightly cooler weather is expected today, with temperatures remaining in the 80s and "more comfortable humidity," the National Weather Service said.
