Last Friday was the 73rd anniversary of the hottest day on record for Baltimore. It was 107 degrees on July 10, 1936, and that blistering day followed a record 103 degrees on the 9th. The 10th was also the only day since record-keeping began in 1871 that we've ever reached 106. That's because the next-highest record highs were all 105 degrees, reached on Aug. 6 and 7, 1918, and again (thankfully, after the invention of air conditioning) Aug. 20, 1983.
