This week we tied 1947 for the hottest July ever recorded in St. John’s.

If the weather spikes past 25 just one more day this July, we’ve officially survived the biggest heat wave this city’s ever known. And guess what the forecast is calling for today? 27 degrees.

Come 5 O’clock, we’ll officially be able to tell any townie born after August 2014 — your future kids, for example — “Oh, this heat’s nothing like the record-breaking heat I survived in 2014.”

Fun Fact: Just one month ago, the runner-up answer for “Biggest Pet Peeve about Living in St. John’s” was “the crappy weather.” Looks like your message got through to the sun. Maybe even angered it into desiccating your soul.
