New York Area Fails to Hit 90F in July for Second Time in a Century

Dave Aiello wrote, "Yesterday, I started hearing reports that temperatures in New York City failed to reach 90 degrees Fahrenheit for the entire month of July. According to the Associated Press, this is only the second time in the past 100 years where this was the case."

"In this area, we had lots of days last summer where it was opressively hot. The only summer I remember that was like this one was when Mount Pinatubo erupted in 1991, except that I believe it rained even more than it has this year."

Dave Aiello continues, "It's hard to say whether it actually rained more in 1991 than it did this year. If I have time, I will try to find out and update this story."

The Associated Press article quoted Paul Breur, owner of Mountain River Tours at Hico, WV, saying, "This is one of the best seasons for rafting in years." Normally at this time of year, it can be almost impossible to travel down most small rivers on the East Coast in a raft.
