July 2011 Beats 1980 for Hottest July on Record

July 2011 exceeded 1980 by a wide margin to take the #1 spot for the hottest July on record for Texoma. It’s also the hottest summer on record based on the temperatures YTD.

July 1980 had a slight edge on the average daily high, but much warmer overnight lows for July 2011 pushed the daily average well above 1980:

July 1980 average high: 102.1

July 1980 average low: 75.8

July 1980 Daily average: 89.0

July 2011 average high: 101.6

July 2011 average low: 79.7

July 2011 Daily average: 90.7

The summer as a whole is also well ahead of 1980, since June of this year was warmer than June 1980:

June 1980 average high: 95.1

June 1980 average low: 71.9

June 1980 Daily average: 83.5

June 2011 average high: 96.5

June 2011 average low: 74.3

June 2011 Daily Average:  85.4

We will wind up with the hottest summer on record without a significant change in August.  The long-range forecast for August doesn't’t offer much promise for that right now. "Summer" as applied here is Meteorological Summer, from June 1 to August 31.
