It has been a great summer! Pete Delkus of WFAA—Channel 8 recently reported that we had the coolest summer that we have had in a decade and the lowest number of 100 degree days from June thru August—which is listed below:
Number of 100 Degree Days – June through August
We average number of 100 degree days in DFW is 18, and our record is 71 (2011).
Here is what this summer compares to the average when looked at by the month:
Number of Days Over 100 Per Month
|July||6.0 days||5 days|
|August||9.2 days||9 days|

Looking at the long range forecast, we are likely finished with 100 degree days and we know for a fact that cooler temperatures are on the way. What a great summer we have had!
