... On this date in weather history...

In 1980, Wichita was torched by a temperature of 110
degrees, a record for the month of June. Right behind
were the 26th and 27th with highs of 109. That Summer,
Wichita broke the 100 degree mark 46 times. That
included an 18 day stretch of triple digit highs. The
heat was so hideously historic that highs reached or
exceeded 100 degrees on all but one day from June 24th to
July 20th. Had the high on July 2nd reached 100 (it
reached 98), then Wichita would have set a record for
most consecutive days of 100 degrees or more with 27. In
1911, incredible as it may seem, Wichita recorded only a
trace of rain during the month of June. This is the only
time that the air capital had failed to record measurable
rainfall during the month of June. In a very distant
second place for driest June on record was 1917, when
0.32 inch was measured. Incidentally, with an average
temperature of 81.5 degrees, 1911 is wichita's 6th
hottest June on record.
