Streaks of 90 F or higher Temperatures

July 14-27, 2011 saw 14 days with the temperature in Lincoln of 90 F or higher.

How does this streak of 14 days compare to the climatological record?

The longest streak was July 8 through August 14 in 1934 with 38 days of temperatures reaching 90 F or higher.

The 2nd longest streak was June 24 through July 28, 1936 with 35 days of temperatures reaching 90 F or higher. AND, during the same Summer, August 8 through August 21, 1936 there was a streak of 14 days with temperatures reaching 90 F or higher. What an awful Summer with a streak of 35 days and shortly thereafter another streak of 14 days of hot temperatures.

The streak of 14 days this year, in July 2011, in perspective, wasn't all that bad!
