August Looking Like July With More Triple-Digit Heat to Come

After days of triple-digit heat in July, August is looking like more of the same

July finished as the third-warmest July on record at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The average high was 102.4 degrees, which is almost seven degrees above normal.

This July calendar shows the high temperatures over the past month. Only four days were below 100 degrees. Only two days the high was lower than normal.

The overnight lows in July were also very warm. The average low temperature was 81.1 degrees. That ranks as the warmest average low on record.

DFW Airport only recorded a trace of rainfall for the month. July 2022 tied for the second-driest July on record. The lack of rainfall also allowed for the drought to worsen. North Texas is now in severe to exceptional drought.
