Reno smashes multiple heat records during summer of 2017

Robb Drive - Sky Vision

Reno had the warmest summer on record with an average temperature of 77.2° since records have been kept at the airport (1973). The Biggest Little City also melted through the longest 90° or more stretch in its history at 51 days, and we didn't stop with the 90's, we hit the most 100° or more days in a summer too.
