what, by far, has been the coolest (or most refreshing) summer to experience a 100° reading?


The fourth coolest summer, in 1881, had one day with a high in the triple digits (a high of 101 on 9/7). And on the flip-side of the coin, the hottest summer not to experience a high of 100+ was in 2005 (third hottest summer). Two other summers among the ten hottest also didn't see a high of 100+ - 2016 (tied for seventh) and 1988 (tied for tenth).


1917 has the distinction of having the fewest number of 90° days (6) to also contain a 100° reading (on 7/31). on the other hand, the most number of 90° days not to contain a 100° reading occurred in 1983 with 36 hot days (7/15 & 9/11 had highs of 98° & 99° respectively).
