The other day I did a post pointing out that most of the really hot temperature records in Canada occurred 1936 to 1941.
I had only found monthly data before 1944. Reader Fred found pre-1944 daily data under the name “Ft McMurray”.
Jeff Masters said:
“Fort McMurray saw record daily highs of 91°F on Tuesday and 89°F on Wednesday. The city gets this warm on only about five days in a typical year, and those days are usually in July or August (even then, the average daily high is between 70°F and 75°F)”
Lets look at the data! Wow!!!!! And this was before 80,000 people and all the UHI moved in.
