Record Temperatures in Delaware
The last few days have been unseasonably warm for Delaware and most of the country. Many people took advantage of the warm weather and hit the beaches. The water was calm and glassy for the boaters. Today was a beautiful day, what did you do to enjoy summer in December? We didn’t set an overall record for December but possibly a daily temperature. The warmest day in December recorded in Lewes was in 1998 and it was 77 degrees. The coldest day in December was-12 degrees in 1942 recorded in Bridgeville. The hottest day ever in Delawre was recorded in Millsboro in 1930 it was 110 degrees, and the coldest day ever also recorded in Millsboro in 1893 was -17 degrees. Today was the warmest yet it seems and the temperature hit 70 degrees and felt warmer in many places inland. It is possible a few areas set a daily temperature record. The rest of the week will be warm as well, but not in the seventies after the rain tomorrow. We will cool back down by the weekend.
