100 Degree Weather Temperature Days in Boston History

A summary of all the 100 degree weather temperature days in Boston history.

They have been keeping weather temperature data in Boston, Massachusetts since 1872. Since that time their have been a total of 22 days when the temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees

Only twice in Boston history has there been any date when the temperature reached 100 degrees more than once. And it just occurred on July 22, 2011. On that date the temperature reached 103 degrees in Boston. On July 22, 1926 the temperature also reached the exact same 103 degrees.

Very odd to say the least, as 103 degrees is the second highest all-time temperature in Boston history. For that number to be reached on the exact same day of the month as the only date in Boston history to have multiple 100 degree days is a huge statistical oddity.

The all-time hottest temperature in Boston is 104 degrees, which was reached on July 4, 1911. The all-time hottest temperature ever recorded in Massachusetts is 107 degrees, which was recorded on August 2, 1975 in both Chester and New Bedford.
