Records Highs Set

June 2, 2011

Temperatures topped the 100 degree mark in many locations across the North Escambia area on Wednesday.  A record high of 101 degrees was set at Pensacola today, breaking the old record of 100 set in 1953. Mobile’s old record of 98 set in 1998 was broken with an afternoon high also at 101.

The unofficial, old fashioned but almost-accurate mercury thermometer at reached 103 in the shade Wednesday afternoon. (Pictured above.) photo, click to enlarge.

      I don’t know… the weather channel website said the high for Wednesday was 95 and it was 103… if they are saying 98 then we may be in trouble!
