Writes MPR’s meteorologist Paul Huttner:
Another day. Another 90.
Wednesday marks the seventh day in a row of 90-degree heat in the Twin Cities and most of southern, central and western Minnesota. That’s the longest streak of 90-degree days on record before June 15 in the Twin Cities.
. . . [O]ur record-setting heat wave is burrowing deeper into the record books with each passing day. We’re likely to tie the third longest 90-degree streak ever recorded in the Twin Cities by Friday. The record is 14 days set in the oppressive summer of 1936.
