    The Northeast faced a fourth day of a record-breaking heat wave on Wednesday, after triple-digit temperatures tested power supplies throughout the region and tried the patience and resilience of anyone who dared to venture outside.

    For the second straight day, New York City set a record high for the day and utilities warned that the length and intensity of this heat wave was testing the limits of their systems.

    Record heat roasts eastern United States July 7, 2010

    New York roasted in record temperatures on Tuesday as a heat wave rolled across the eastern United States, pushing power companies to the limit and driving residents to municipal "cooling centres".

    The National Weather Service (NWS) measured 103 degrees Fahrenheit (39.45C) in Central Park in mid-Manhattan, easily breaking the 101 degrees record set for July 6 back in 1999.

    Soaring temperatures, often in the triple-digit range, also afflicted Washington, DC; Richmond, Virginia; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and reached as far as Montreal, Canada.

    Watts Up With That has an excellent little article that shows how your inflated temps were derived including the 192 degree temp attained by the tarmac that surrounds the weather station at the airport. That would be relevant don't you think?

    Chris is the one that during the winter as people posted RECORD cold spells that lasted weeks and months INSISTED that a single month was irrelevant and now is claiming just the opposite.

    But of course, that is the standard MO of the ethically challenged.

    Well dingbats, the temps are also setting records in small towns, and on the farms.

    However, every summer has a few exceptionally hot days, every winter a few exceptionally cold days. Let us revisit this in October, and see what this summer looks like from that vantage point.

    Wait a minute...I thought all the warmist moonbats keep telling us that weather is different than climate.

    Oh yeah, that's only when it snows 6" in Vegas or Baghdad.
