The heat this summer has really been lacking.  Fresh off a start to July that was rather lackluster when it comes to heat with only three days at or above normal temperature-wise, today we made it the warmest day of summer.  And still, we're yet to reach 90° at the Rochester International Airport.

We've had a few afternoons that have rivaled air temperatures observed today.  Several locations made it to 88, even that seemingly elusive 90 mark was reached in a handful of communities.  86° in Rochester, the official climate station for SE Minnesota, matched the previous (and still current) high mark for the year that occurred back on May 30th.
