The first of two surges of heat were noted on this date in 1917, as the temperature reached 94 in St. Johnsbury and 90 in Burlington, and would climb again into the 90s by the end of the week. Although the heat set a few daily records, there was nothing too exceptional about the heat. Consider, though, that following winter of 1917-18 was the coldest of this century.
