This serves as an official retraction of the post from July 21, 2009 and a portion of the post from July 18, 2009. The high temperature of 77 degrees on July 21 was NOT the coolest high temperature ever recorded on that date nor did it tie for the coolest "meteorological summer" day on record. The previous record (which still stands) is 70 degrees, not 82 degrees as quoted.
In addition, the record lowest high temperature for July 18 is 76 degrees, which was also not broken.
