As the Triad works it's way into May it is not out of the ordinary to start seeing 90° high temperatures show up in the 7-Day Outlook. In fact if there hasn't been a 90° day by mid-late June then some might consider it to be a somewhat of a mild summer. Chief Meteorologist Grant Gilmore took the idea of 90° temperatures and broke it down by the numbers and here is what he found.

90's By The Numbers:

- The earliest 90° day in a year in the Triad was on March 3, 1945

- The latest in the year there has been a 90° day in the Triad was October 12, 1904

- The average number of 90° days in the Triad is 37

- The least number of 90° days in the Triad in a year is 4 (2013)

- The most number of 90° in the Triad in a year was 82 (1914)


And while we're talking about heat and since you're probably wondering, here's the same information about 100° days

100s By The Numbers:

- The earliest 100° day in a year in the Triad was on May 12, 1916

- The latest in the year there has been a 100° day in the Triad was September 7, 1925

- The average number of 100° days in the Triad is 2
