Over 2000 Record High Temperatures Set Last Week

Image made by hamweather
Over 2000 temperature records have been set in the past 7 days, with the map above showing the majority of these records set in the lower Great Lakes and general Eastern US.

When it came down to it, 2103 separate high temperature records were set in the Lower 48 in the last 7 days, thanks to a historical high pressure system that pumped triple digit temperatures as far north as Chicago (IL), which experienced three consecutive days of 100+ degree temperatures.

An interesting fact: A quarter of the past week's records were set in the past 2 days.
