Heat oppresses Clinton area

CLINTON — The Clinton area may see a temperature record that has not been seen in decades, says Jim Blaess, area weather observer for the U.S. government.

If today’s temperature goes above 90 degrees, the area will be seeing something it has not had since July 1983.

Today would mark 11 days in a row for temperatures of more than 90 degrees. The consecutive-day record was set in 1936 when there were temperatures of more than 90 degrees for 16 days in a row, 13 of which had temperatures of more than 100 degrees. A total of 22 days in the entire month in 1939 had temperatures of more than 90 degrees.

Friday, the high for Clinton reached 100 degrees. The record high for July 6 is 103 degrees, which was set in 1936.
