Hot weather isn’t unusual in June. But having a long string of 90-degree days certainly is! Looking back over the record books, which date back to 1874, June 20th marks the start of the most intense June heat wave in Hampton Roads.
Starting on June 20th way back in 1880, temperatures climbed to 90° for 13 consecutive days, taking us into early July. And on June 24th and 28th, temperatures actually topped 100°.
Despite the hot end to the month, cooler weather earlier in the month meant that June 1880 didn’t even crack the top 10 hottest Junes.
