Is Summer Finished with North TX?

September 4, 2007 at 3:20 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

The hottest time of the year on average is the last week of July and the first couple of weeks of August.

This year, we saw our hottest weather from August 11 to August 15, with highs above 100. Since then, we’ve seen temps dip below 100, but we saw highs rebound into the upper 90s last week.

In an average North Texas summer, we’ll hit 100 sixteen times, but so far this year, only 5 times, cooler than normal, and so far, we’ve heard few complaints!

With the weather pattern showing no real signs of a heat wave building back in, its probably safe to assume we won’t hit 100 again. Of course, humble pie is often served to meteorologists in the Metroplex, and the latest 100 degree high occured in October 3, 1951, but from here, it sure looks like we’ll finish 2007 with just five 100 degree days.

Now, in two summers, 1970 and 1906, we escaped with zero 100 degree days! Rare indeed!
