Streak of 80 Degrees or Higher in the Twin Cities:
May 23-June 8, 2006
From May 23 to June 8, 2006 the Twin Cities International Airport saw the mercury climb to 80 degrees or higher each of the 17 consecutive days. Not since records began in 1891 has there been a streak of 80 or above this long so early in the season in the Twin Cities. The longest stretch of consecutive days of 80 degrees or higher in the Twin Cities is 32 days during the notorious heat wave of June 27 to July 28 1936. The last time there was a run of 20 consecutive days or more was 23 days from August 6 to August 28 2003.
