|Title: Weather Diary 24 June 1816|
Concept: Summer during the Year Without a Summer.
Detail: Waltham, MA roasted in 99°F temperatures on this early
summer date in 1816. While that is certainly a pretty warm day for New
England, what makes it unusual is that it occurred in the famous "Year
Without a Summer." Only on June 7, had Waltham shivered at 33°F, with
heavy frost (See Diary). Frost returned again during July and August in
what was one of the most unusual summers in our nation's history.
However, it points out that even during periods of extremes in weather,
the opposite extreme can also be found, such as flash floods during a
general drought year, or brutally cold temperatures for several days
during an otherwise mild winter.
