July Officially Was The Hottest Month Ever
Assuming that boring Al Gore movie was wrong, you will be able to tell your grandkids that you officially lived through the hottest month ever. Before they ignore you and listen to some terrible futuristic dubstep song.
As if the constant waterfall of sweat wasn't any indicator, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration said the average temperature beat a record set in 1936. The average temp for the whole nation was 77.6 degrees, the highest ever recorded since record keeping began in 1895.
The NOAA also said the past 12 months have been the hottest ever. The hot summer has also led to a drought in much of the U.S. The U.S. Department of agriculture has declared disaster areas in more than half of counties across the country.
July was also the second hottest month on record locally. The average temperature of 97.3 degrees, shattered the old record of 96.0 set in July 1936.
So do you think the days of 104 degree temps are over? Or do you think this heat wave will continue through August?
