After near record cold on September 13th, 1946, Burlington was starting a string of record highs on this date in 1946. Over the next four days, thermometers would reach 84, 87, 85, and 89 degrees, summer hanging on until the very last day. After cooling off, the warmth returned for a swansong before the end of the month, setting another record on the 28th.
