Consecutive 90s

Detroit Metro Airport has now recorded 5 consecutive days reaching 90F or greater. Looking at the forecast, the airport is expected to reach 90 through Friday or Saturday. The record for consecutive 90 degree days was set in 1953 with 11 days in a row (ending 9/4/1953). This means if the forecast holds true, we will tie the record of 11 consecutive 90 degree days. We only need 8 consecutive days to tie for 2nd place in Detroit's climate history. The record for Flint is 13 consecutive days, ending 7/18/1936, with 9 needed for 2nd place. Saginaw's record is 10, ending 9/3/1953, with 9 needed for 2nd place.
