When Was The Hottest Summer Ever?

By By Steve Pool

SEATTLE - It's been such a sunny and dry summer, and many are wondering if it's the warmest summer ever.

Not quite. While each summer month has been a bit above average for monthly temperatures, 1967 was probably a year many wish they had air conditioning. The average high in August was 83.7 degrees -- the hottest month ever recorded in Seattle. To compare, this August we were at 76.7 degrees.

On the flip side, this year marks the 10-year anniversary of the summer that wasn't, when we went four straight weeks of below-normal temperatures in July of 1993, leaving us with a paltry average high of 68.6 for both July -- and August to boot.

I wonder what 2013 has in store for us?
