I am not clear on how this will work. The market info gives a web site and says that the answer will be the record high published there on Aug. 1. But the record highs are by month, and the hottest months are May and June, most of which are during the spring rather than summer.

Can I assume that a high temp on any month of the year will be counted? Then so far, the published record is 43 degrees (in May), and when the market price is below $43, it is a sure thing. Am I right?

I thought that the record high would be for the hottest day in a month for this year, but I realise now that it’s the all-time record high for the hottest day for a particular month.

This market needs a better source for historical weather info

Here is another source for current information: http://www.weather.com/outlook/travel/businesstraveler/monthly/INXX0202?from=dailyAvg_topnav_business

It shows peak temp this month so far: 41 degrees.
