We're moving up a couple of spots to now the 3rd hottest July on record.  We're averaging 82.8 degrees (highs + lows / 2)

#1  84.2  in 1901,  #2  83.3 in 1936,  #3   82.8 -  NOW,  #4   82.5  in 1921, #5   82.4 in 1934.  

Kind of interesting to see the others in the top 5 all during the early 20th century. 

20 of our first 25 days have been in the 90s, with low 80s only happening once on the 1st of July.  Last July we had a record because we never hit 90! 

It's hard to believe the last week of July is already here.  Our last week won't be as extremely hot, but still probably in the 90s for at least the last 5 of 6 days left in the month. 

We could be heading to a top 10 or top 15 longest stretch in the 90s, if we hit 90 or above today we'll be at 13 days in a row.  15 days in a row will be a tie for top 10.  We normally have 11 days at 90 or above, we're going to more than double that figure.
