It was a mere 100 degrees officially on July 6, 2012 at Port Columbus. A record breaker…
This thermometer in Far North Columbus (between Worthington and Polaris) read 108 degrees and a little bit later when when this photo was shot 105 degrees. I think the angle of the sun, the reflection off window and a concrete patio make this thermometer read high in the late afternoon.
Yesterday’s Columbus Dispatch article titled “Hitting 100 Degrees Rare in Columbus” tells about the hot years. 1988 and 1936.
Today’s forecast: 102 degrees.
2012 temperatures we will be talking about them for years.
