First 90 Degree Temp in Atlanta in 277 Days | News
We did something in Atlanta today that we haven't done in 277 days. We hit 90 degrees. The last time Atlanta was in the 90s was on September 7, 2012 when it was 90 degrees. We've come close a couple of times so far this year. On May 21st it was 89 degrees. It also hit 89 on June 4th.
This is a little late to hit the 90s. I looked for the past 3 years to see when our first 90s arrived. In 2012, it was on May 25th when it hit 90 for the first time. In 2011, we hit 90 for the first time on May 22 when it was 92 degrees. In 2010, our first 90 was on May 23rd. We are running a couple of weeks behind the average for our first 90 degree reading this year.
It will be even hotter tomorrow. We are forecasting a high of 94 degrees in Atlanta on Wednesday!
