Burlington reached to 101°!

No, not this year, but on August 11, 1944 the Burlington area observed its hottest temperature since record keeping began. It reached to 101 degrees. This is not the hottest temperature ever recorded in Vermont though. That distinction belongs to Vernon, Vermont when on July 4, 1911 it hit 105 degrees!

On this August 11 it will be a warm day, but not close to the triple digit heat. Instead temperatures will be several degrees warmer than average locally. Across the area, average highs range from 75-82 degrees for August 11. Forecast highs will be 80-87F.

If you're more of a cold weather person, try this on for size. Instead of the record high temperature for the state, the coldest temperature ever recorded in the state of Vermont was -50 degrees. That happened in Bloomfield, Vermont!
