Summer Average Temperatures at U.S. Weather Stations in 2010, Compared with Historical Data from 1895-2010 Note: 153 of 1,218 weather stations in the contiguous United States maintained by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration experienced all-time record summer (June-August) temperatures. This number differs from the number of cities that experienced record hot summers because the weather stations are often located in rural areas.

Record Temperatures Heat Up the United States," fact sheet (New York: September 2010), at www.nrdc.org/globalWarming/hottestsummer/default.asp This is part of a supporting dataset for Lester R.
