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.
