2017 set a new record for the most number of low temperatures in the seventies to occur on or after 9/14, with seven, besting 2005 by one day, and 1970, 1891 & 1881 by two days.

Projected low overnight tonight is 70 degrees, if we can maintain that thru 24 hours tomorrow we'll have a new record for the latest date with a low of 70 or above. Should be interesting.


regarding Ken's comment, when was the last time a record for an earliest or latest temperature occurrence broke the one that was established just one year earlier?


If this has happened previously I may have mentioned it in one of the daily recaps but I don't have a track of such occurrences. However, the latest date for a high in the 90s, which happened in 1938, was followed in 1939 by the second latest date. Additionally, there are a number of precipitation and records for highs and lows that occurred in consecutive years.
