Stifling heat on this date in 1955 pushed the thermometers to 95 in Burlington, and a toasty 103 in Windham, New Hampshire. Naturally a cool and refreshing rain would be a welcomed end to excessive heat, but instead, this heat wave was followed be excessive rains on the 6th and 7th releasing 3.5 inches of rain on Bloomfield, VT, and starting Burlington on its way to making August 1955 its wettest month ever.
