A lot has been made of St. Louis' high temperatures of late, with the thermometer topping out at 103 yesterday and 100 on Wednesday.

But it's the daily low temperature from yesterday that's truly record-setting. According to the National Weather Service, the temperature in St. Louis yesterday -- July 21 -- dropped to just 83 degrees. That's the warmest low temperature recorded on that date since 1885, when the low temperature reached 82 degrees.

For the record, the hottest minimum temperature ever in St. Louis was 86 degrees, set back on July 24, 1901. Imagine sleeping through that without air-conditioning!
