October 1963 brought unprecedented heat from coast to coast.

There was a worldwide drought and the Susquehanna and Delaware Rivers nearly dried up.

  1. I remember the fall of “63 in Costa Mesa, Ca. We had our schools closed at noon because (no AC)temperatures reached a freakish 113 degrees (just 4 miles from Newport Beach)during the Santa Ana winds of September and October that year. And remained over 100 degrees for 2 weeks or so.
    I think most memories of that period are dominated by the Kennedy assassination just weeks later and largely forgotten. I’m not sure, but I don’t believe that temperatures have ever exceeded the fall 1963 period since.
