How hot was it? Lexington's summer didn't match Louisville's

Goodbye 90s, we saw too much of ye. Friday probably was the last day of 90 or higher temperatures that Lexington will see this year.

There were 39 of them this year, which was well over the average (23.5) but nowhere near the record (85 in 1936) and not even in the Top 10, according to climatological records maintained by the University of Kentucky's Agricultural Weather Center.

Louisville, on the other hand, had 83 days when temperatures were 90 or higher this year, which was a record.
