I recall the very hot summer of 1980 in Lawrence. Were there any days when the temperature overnight stayed above 100 degrees?
According to Kansas State Climatologist Mary Knapp, records show that in recent history Lawrence has never been above 100 degrees overnight. The warmest overnight temperature recorded for the area was 93 degrees on July 25, 1939. The highest overnight temperature in 1980 was 83 degrees July 20.
