Since the month of July began the mercury in the thermometer had risen to or above the 90-degree mark, which would be a boring fact if this was the first week of the month, but we’re in the latter part of July and we just broke the record for the number of days in a row at or above 90-degrees at the Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport. The previous record of 22 consecutive days was set in 1966, so we broke a record that has stood for over 50 years. Records have been kept at this location in Roanoke since 1912. Chief Meteorologist John Carroll breaks down the record-breaking month.
