Continued Hot with Possible Storms

We've topped 90° during 16 of the 27 days thus far in July and expect today to be right around the 90° mark once again.

Our hottest July day has been 97° on 16th. Looking at our 7-day forecast, we'll see this heat continue throughout the period. Highs are averaging 89.6° during this month compared with an average of 87.7°, just about 2° above normal.

The record year occurred in 1980 when our average day was 93.9°. Compare that with last July (one of the coolest on record) when our average high was only 81.9°.

Not much change in the forecast as we expect thunderstorms to once again boil and roil in the afternoon heat. Most of us will not see a drop of rain but the folks who do should get heavy rains. Again, expect highs right around 90° with heat index readings near 100°.
