What’s the truth about record breaking heat and cold in Missouri? Regional Radio’s Gary Knehans has the story

With all the talk of record-breaking heat the last two weeks, Regional Radio’s Gary Knehans started doing his homework and found a great deal of information about record weather events in Missouri, courtesy of the University of Missouri, Missouri Climate Center, College of Agriculture, Food and Natual Resources. Among the many items he found, was that the record high temperature for Missouri was 118 degrees, dating back to 1954. Here is a link to the Missouri Climate Center  http://climate.missouri.edu/ You are encouraged to explore and find out the coldest and the warms days, months, and years along with severe weather information dating back to 1895. This will probably dispel many statements you are hearing in the media about, “record-breaking temperatures”, and other interesting weather in Missouri.
