- The source of the historical data here is the NCDC GSOD (now updated through 2010).
- The records are defined here using GMT, with the day resetting at 00GMT (7PM EST;8PM EDT).
- These records are NOT official and differ from official records that use a longer database and local time.
- Only cities having an NCDC GSOD recorded history of at least 35 years are shown here.
- Note that given the relatively short record used here (as small as 35 years), records will almost assuredly be set somewhere every day for the next several decades to centuries.
