1,924 high-temperature records in the U.S. were broken or tied last week. Probably nothing.

It is unusual for all-time high temperature records to be set during June, since July and August typically feature more intense heat events than those that take place during early summer. … In a long-term trend that demonstrates the effects of a warming climate, daily record-high temperatures have recently been outpacing daily record-lows by an average of 2-to-1, and this imbalance is expected to grow as the climate continues to warm.
