Deadly, Record-Breaking Heat A Quarter Century Ago

June 27, 2005 at 3:28 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

25 years ago this week was arguably the worst stretch of weather that North Texas has ever seen since records have been kept.

From June 23rd to July 3rd, 11 consecutive days, triple digit heat broke all previous daily records. Each day during this stretch was at least 104 degrees and June 26th and 27th hit 113, the hottest DFW temperature ever recorded.

That stretch was only part of an amazing summer. From June 1st to September 30th, 12 additional daily records were broken.

This year, there are no complaints that DFW hasn’t officially hit 100 degrees, although this week we get very close and the triple digits would not be surprising.
