Here are the hottest days on record in the D.C. area at all major recording stations.

Temperatures should reach the upper 90s and possibly even the 100 degree mark over the next few days, possibly breaking area records. How does this heat compare with the all-time hottest days in the D.C. area? Here are a few lists. 

Note: For the lists, I simply found the hottest days at each recording station and in the event of a tie listed the oldest one first. I figure there is a better way to do this, but I wanted to list the date next to it as well and wanted to consolidate the lists a bit.
