Whew! July dripped with sweat
The Kansas City Star
It’s good to have July in the rear view mirror. It was a scorcher.
How hot was it? According to data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, July was the hottest month in the history of record-keeping for the planet. That’s going back 117 years to 1895.
The previous hottest July was in 1936. Would you believe that was during the Dust Bowl days?
The average temperature for the July we just lived through in the 48 contiguous states was 77.7, which was 3.3 degrees warmer than the 20th century average.
Can you say global warming?
