  1. Using the entire threaded record (1875-2024), including the downtown city office records, and the expected value of 81.4F, this will be the hottest 7-day period ever wholly in June behind only 1994 (7-days ending 6-19, 6-20, 6-21, and 6-22). While the magnitude might have been exaggerated, and this might be an unpopular opinion, the NWS did correctly indicate that this would be the hottest stretch in June since 1994 [although it clearly did not exceed 1994, even though they distinctly indicated that was a possibility]. And they made that forecast with several days lead time. Actually, from the above graphic, you can see the 7-day period ending yesterday already on this list with a mean 80.6F, which alone makes it the highest in the month of June behind only the 4 dates from 1994, and one week each in 1888 and 1952 [and tied with the week ending 6/30/1933 & 6/24/1884]. As noted, the 7-day period ending today should be even higher and likely finish around 81.4F.
  2. Say what you will about the heat wave underperformance but the most recent 7 days will indeed be the hottest 7-day stretch [as measured by average mean temperature] in 29 years at Pittsburgh International Airport. Indeed, the hottest 7-day period since the ASOS has been installed. A lot of these are duplicates, i.e. longer single hot stretches that had multiple different 7-day periods. For context, the 82.0F mean only includes 6 days. But today's high was 86, low so far 75. Estimating the low will drop to 70F by 1 am, we get 82.0 x 6 + 78 = 570 / 7 = 81.4F. Not sure how plausible it is that we had stretches on this list from 1987, 1988, 1991, 1993, 1994 and 1995 in a narrow 10-year window with a known warm biased thermometer, but I'll leave that conspiracy hat off for now. The 1948 & 1952 periods are actually from AGC, even though incorrectly included in this dataset. The only other comparable 7-day means at Pittsburgh International (not in the aforementioned 10-year period) are the 7-days ending 7/21/1980 & 9/3/1953.

  5. That 57 near East Berlin (Brrr-Lin) looking mighty nice right about now.
  6. Record high of 90F at DuBois - likely to rise higher. That's the fifth consecutive daily record. Even for a relatively small period, very impressive. Good chance of matching or exceeding the monthly record of 92F, set on June 30, 1969, and earlier in this heat stretch (June 18, 2024). That's also 4 90+ readings on the year. For context, only 6 entire years since 1962 have seen more 90+ days, and this is only June 21! Those 6 years are: 1988, with 20; 2020 & 1966, with 8 each; 2010, with 6; and 2016 & 2011, with 5 each. Odd how 1800' elevation is obliterating records from 1988 & 1994, but they claim it was so much hotter in Pittsburgh. Like they are going to toe to toe with the 1994 heat episode, and breaking records set during that stretch by noon every day. Seems strange to me.

  8. Yeah, I haven't noticed this phenomenon. At PIT, highs are actually more above normal than lows so far this month, with the diurnal range near 21F. I'm sure rural and outlying areas probably have diurnal ranges on the order of 22-24F this month.
