Heatwave Of July 1936 At Hancock, Wisconsin

Summers used to be much hotter in the US. During the heatwave of 1936, Hancock WI was over 95 degrees on twelve consecutive days. Eight of those days were over 100 degrees, and two were over 110 degrees.

Those eight days over 100 degrees are more than the total number of 100 degree days Hancock has seen in the past sixty years. Hancock has only had three 100 degree days in the past twenty years.

    Revisionist alarmist history actually tries to claim that modern Midwest summers are as hot, if not hotter than 1936. The alarmists totally expose their soft underbelly by attempting to make such an absurd contention. Even a cursory look at the 1936 data exposes them as the total fraud that they are. They are not even close to being correct. Not even close to being close.

    The high temperature record for August 19 in Norfolk County was 34 C in 1936. 18 of the high temperature records for July hail from the 1930s, six of those are from 1936. There must have been a big heatwave in Ontario as well.

    The early July heatwave of 1936 likely wins as the most extreme heatwave recorded in North America. It hit a huge area of the continent and set many not just daily record highs but all time highs for many locations. As far as Southern Ontario is concerned, Toronto recorded temperatures of 31.7, 40.6, 40.6, 40.6, 35.6, 33.3, 37.8, 33.3, 30.6 and 31.1 Celsius from July 6th through July 16, 1936. July 7, 8 and 9 were the only days that Toronto has ever exceeded 40C. There were over 200 heat related deaths in the city and over 400 in the province as a whole. The rest of July 1936 was not unusually hot and the overall average for that month (22.9) does not crack the top 20 July’s since 1840 and is far short of the 25.5 of July 1921 (the hottest recorded).
