Sixty-one years ago this week, Baltimoreans sweltered through one of the hottest stretches of August weather on record for the city. For three days, instruments at the Customs House recorded the highest temperatures ever for the dates - 101 or 102 degrees each day from the 26th through the 28th. Overnight lows never sank below 77 degrees for four nights ending on the 29th, setting new "high minimum" records each time. All those daily records set in 1948 still stand today.
