does this analysis include heat waves that have lasted for more than four days or just four days exactly? also, did 2018 set some kind of record for one of the warmest beginnings to August since the first ten days all had highs above 80° and lows above 70°?


This analysis was limited to heat waves of four days in length. Regarding your second question, the hottest beginning to August was in 1955 when the first seven days were all in the 90s and averaged a high/low of 96/75. And the first ten days of August 2001 had an average high/low of 93/74, with eight days in the 90s.
