Sweltering heat waves were becoming a common thing across Vermont in the 1940s, in part because of global temperature rises, and in part due to the lack of forest cover at the time. On this date in 1948, yet another heat wave was cranking – St. Johnsbury at 95, Burlington 96, and Bellows Falls a toasty 98 degrees, where a week-long heat wave saw thermometers top 90 degrees from the 24th through the 30th.
