North Texas had its share of 100-degree days during the month of July. Seventeen to be exact.

While many North Texans sweated out the month with temperatures over 90 degrees each day, California’s Death Valley, broke its own record of 127 degrees, making it the hottest month on Earth for the second year in a row.

Average daily temperatures in July 2018 were around 108 degrees. Records go back to 1911.

To add to the misery, 21 days in July saw maximum temperatures of 120 degrees or higher in Death Valley. These measurements are taken once daily by volunteers from a weather station outside the Furnace Creek Visitor Center located in the heart of the valley.

It’s been the official weather station for Death Valley since 1961, though records extend back for more than 100 years.
