Summer 2010: The Hottest Summer Since 1895

September 1, 2010

This summer has been declared the hottest summer on record in Va. since 1895.

September 1st marks the 57th day the temperature has been above 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Climatologist Jerry Stenger says, "the heat also made the top soil very dry, this year has been a tough one for local farmers."

However, the harsh winter did act in favor of local farmers by keeping the water supply level relatively safe.

The hot weather is not over yet. Past trends in Charlottesville show September has the potential to produce more days where the heat exceeds 100 degrees.
