Hottest Ever

Hot enough for you? June and July are hottest ever in some cities

Think it's been hot this summer? You're right. In fact, it's been the hottest summer on record in eight eastern cities, according to the Northeast Regional Climate Center at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York.

The center says it's shaping up as the hottest June-July period ever in Syracuse, Buffalo, Utica, Ithaca and Binghamton, New York, as well as in Scranton and Erie, Pennsylvania. Other cities from Burlington, Vermont to Pittsburgh will remember this as one of the hottest summers ever.

Across New York, the statewide average in June was just under 70 degrees, five and a-half degrees warmer than normal. The hot spell has hurt and helped farmers. Milk production could drop because cows don't like the extreme heat, while the growth of corn is described by one agriculture official as "almost freakish." And the high temperatures crank up the sugar content in fruit, meaning sweeter apples come fall.
