Early season heat gets to be more common by the last week of May. The ground, the lakes, and the ocean are slow to warm up, but by now, most record highs reach 90 degrees or more. Such is the case on this date in 1964, again in 1975, and most recently in 1991. Lake Champlain has held Burlington to a maximum of 88, but St. Johnsbury has reached 91, and Cavendish 93.
