But not for the day’s high. We tied the record for highest minimum temperature for July 13 on Sunday, when the low was 82 degrees at DFW. The last July 13 that was that warm for the low was in 1954.
For those who aren’t keeping track: We’re almost four inches below normal for rain, and almost three inches since June 1. Which means that there is a reason all those lawns are getting crunchy.
By the numbers: We’ve had three days 100 or warmer this month, and eight for the year. That’s half the number of 100-degree days in an average summer, and nowhere near the record of 69, set in 1980.
The other record to watch: The record high minimum temperature for July is 80.8, set in 1998. We’re at 77.2, which is tied for seventh all-time with 1966.
