did 2018 set some kind of record for the biggest difference in high temperature on mom's day versus dad's day?


On Sunday evening I had the same thought and began looking into it. Going back to 1980 one other year had the same 37-degree difference - in 2010 the high on Father's Day was 89 and on Mother's Day it was 52. And 1994 had a 36-degree difference between the highs (98 v 62. However, looking at the daily mean temperature, this year ranks third behind 2010 and 1994.


2019 was the second year in a row where Father's Day was a lot warmer and more humid than Mother's Day, so much so, that in both years, Mother's Day felt like fall and Father's Day felt like summer. When was the last time consecutive years had this distinction for these holidays?


You'll be able to find the answer to your question in the following post from last year that compares the two holidays: https://thestarryeye.typepad.com/weather/2018/06/comparing-mothers-and-fathers-day-weather.html
