(Atlantic) A new record high temperature was set in Atlantic yesterday according to State Climatologist Harry Hilaker.
Yesterday’s high temperature was 91 degrees eclipsing the old record high of 90 degrees from 1981. 2012 appears to be a record setting year for setting records.
“We had one or two records set back in January, maybe four or five maybe even six set in March and then two or three dates set her in April.”
Hillaker says there haven’t been this many record high temperatures fall since 1934 and 1936 when 12-15 records were set.
