Summer is the season of heat. It's the season of humidity. That is, until Summer 2014 rolled around. This is turning out to be the Summer that wasn't. A good judge of how hot of a Summer you have is to count the number of days you hit 90 degrees. Well, over the past decade, Providence has averaged just under 10 days of 90 degree heat each Summer. This Summer we've seen only three such days (July 2nd...90, July 3rd....90, and July 8th...91). It should be noted that this was not an historically cool summer, as the average daily mean temperature was only around 1 degree below normal, but the lack of "hot" days is worthy of note.
