This summer is the coolest summer we have seen since 2007 in North Texas.  But even with that said, it was the 27th hottest summer on record out of 114 summers on record.

Meteorological summer is considered to be the months of June, July and August.


The hottest summer when you look at the averages was 2011.  The second hottest was 1980.


Temperatures remain around 100 degrees for the next couple of days before falling into the mid 90s next week.  Still hot though for September where the average high temperatures for this time of year is 92 degrees.
