MIKE MOSS SAYS: Beth, That's a good question - what Greg was actually referring to was "all of the locations that have served as the official reporting site for Raleigh," which is currently the Raleigh-Durham airport but which began with the "Raleigh Experiment Station, 2 miles SW of Raleigh" on January 1st, 1887. Among the entire series of official stations, the previous record for 90+ days in a year was 82 days at the Raleigh Municipal Airport in 1941. As of Tuesday afternoon, Oct 9, we had reached 90 or above at RDU 83 times this year.
