A rainy pattern returns over the next three days with the best chances coming on Thursday. The Hazardous Weather Outlook says we may see some strong-to-severe storms both Thursday and Thursday night.

**Cool July**
More than 98 low-temperature records were either tied or broken on July 14th. Some had stood for many years.  For instance, here is a record from Michigan (Stambaugh) where temperatures dropped to 37° this really July? In Texas, they are dealing with record heat as highs were in the triple digits in several locations.
