It’s been a hot week here in Hamden, the temperatures have been above 90 since Sunday, along with heat index readings topping 100 degrees! The last two days have been the most impressive. Thursday high was 96, with dew point of 79 and a heat index of 113. Friday was 95 degrees with a dew point of 81, giving a heat index of 118! The dew point of 81 was the highest recorded here since I started keeping records in 2008! In addition the nights have been above 70 even near 75 all this week here! The monthly average temp is 79 now and the average dew point 72! Quite impressive!
