There are several ways to measure how hot or uncomfortable it is for a spring and summer season. You could compute the average temperature and compare it to the long term average. You could look at the "cooling degree day" which is the comparison of the average daily temperature to a base temperature of 75°. This is used to determine the amount of air conditioning needed. Also you could look at the level of the dew point. But probably the easiest way is to just add the total number of days that the temperature rose to 90° or higher. Thus far Rochester has recorded 8 days of 90° heat and that number is likely to rise over the coming week. It should be noted that this season has already reached the long term average for 90° readings. But this is not unusual considering that as recently as 2007 we had 17 days of 90° heat and back in 2002 we recorded 20 days.
