Record high temperatures on several occasions along with persistent heat brought the 2nd warmest July on record! Now that the month has come to a close, the average monthly temperature was 78.8°. This mark is +5.8° above normal and is only eclipsed by July of 1921 where the average monthly temperature was 79.0°.
The warmest day was 102° on July 21st. Now imagine this...Dallas Texas is currently on a streak of 30 consecutive days of temperatures ABOVE 100° for a total of 37 days of triple digit heat this year. I expect some of the warmest weather of the season remains over the central and southern plains through the first week of August continuing the schortching hot weather.
