Wednesday was a record-setting hot day. Wednesday was a record-setting hot day. The weather wasn’t just hot on Wednesday, June 18. No. It was record-breaking hot, according to information posted by the National Weather Service.

At 3 p.m. the temperature recorded at the Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township notched up to 94 degrees, breaking a record set 42 years ago, according to the National Weather Service.

The previous record high for the day was 93 degrees set in 1962.

Remember, however, it’s not just the heat, it’s the humidity.

A humidity level of 64 percent made if feel as though the temperature was 96 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

The heat won’t last too much longer, however.

Weather forecasts call for a cold front to settle in from the north and drop tomorrow’s high temperatures back into the 80s.
