Unusual for July

The clouds and rain shower activity have held the temperatures down across much of the central and southern US. But how bizarre is this statistic? The last time Dallas had a high in the 70s in July was over 16 years ago. The last two weeks of July and the first week of August is (on average) the hottest time of the year with highs in the mid 90s. We've had so much hot weather the last two summers that most of us expected it could repeat.

We do see a shift coming in the pattern for the second part of the week. So hotter temperatures will return. But what may help out is a cold front coming into the area Friday night and Saturday. It may not drop the temperatures much, but it should bring a chance for more rain/storms. Stay tuned.
