The Heatwave Of June 2, 1934

Written by Tony Heller

On this date in 1934, temperatures reached 101F in New York, 100 in Pennsylvania, 106 in Ohio, 102 in Michigan, 106 in Wisconsin, 105 in Illinois, 105 in Minnesota, 105 in Iowa, 101 in South Dakota, 102 in Nebraska, 100 in Kansas, 103 in Missouri, 101 in Arkansas and 100 in Tennessee.

It was 106F in Racine, Wisconsin on June 2, 1934. They haven’t been that hot since 1936.

The hottest June in Racine actually wasn’t 1934, it was 1933. Racine June temperatures have dropped about 5F since the 1930’s.

The number of days over 100F has plummeted since then and rarely happen anymore.

Temperatures as hot as 1934 are incomprehensible now. The Midwest doesn’t get hot weather like that anymore, especially not during the Spring.

    Is time running backward?

    RACINE, Wisconsin — They didn’t even hit 90 F for several years lately! Only reason I know is that my grandsons were in daycare there and they could not go outside if the temp hit 90.
    God blasted, lying destroyers, doing their best to obstruct progress for ALL people!
