Amazing. Imagine if we didn’t get several big rounds of storms in July. Would have easily been at the top of the list. 

Yup we would have had a 100 degree day also.

My ambient weather station split today was a bit cooler than my Davis Vantage Pro at 85.8/68.7 vs. the Vantage Pro at 85.9/69.5

Here in the Cape May area, yes! Warmest July in 133 years of record. 80.2F with 14 days at or above 90F. Back to 1960 15 is the highest number 90's. Interestingly including 2010 6 of the 10 warmest July's on record have occurred. Of course it was really the humidity which, in truth, has been a drag. Day after day after day with dew points in the 70's.. Relief, please!

We hit 91F today. Surprised we were hotter than PHL. Doesn't happen often.

nothing cheap about our 91 degrees today, neither was lugging the bag around for 9 holes at 3:00

on the bright side the 67 degrees while walking the dogs early this morning was a welcome break

I could see this lightning show off to my north as my son woke up at 5:15.  Yikes.

Bad precursor to the main event this week. These areas are going to be primed for major flooding.

Yawn...   0.05" this morning.  But the thunder this morning from that tornado warned cell was impressive.

of course it was hot....it was one of the hottest ever correct? whether it was 87 or 92 depending on where you live...the high humidity almost all month made it even worse....assume you agree?

I have no long term records down here at the Jersey Shore...but for Sea Isle City we had only 6 days over 90 with an average temp of 78.7 - warmest July since I have kept records but that is only since October 2016 - Wayne we still had most days with sea breezes hence the high temp was often late AM....did you note many sea breezes? How close to the water are you...I am just 2 blocks inland...I know just 2 miles inland they had many more 90's like back toward Seaville

Suspect today could be our last chance this year of a 90+ day here in Western Chesco. Even if we fail to touch 90 again....the 5 such days already recorded this year are the most since the seven (7) 90+ days we recorded in 2012. For more good news for those sick of this heat....our last average day with a high in the 80's is August 17th - with our average high of only 77.7 by the end of this month!  On a wet note the WXSIM prints out 4.49" of rain from the tropical storm this week....we shall see!  We could use some rain as while we are still above normal we have not seen any rain in the last 8 days.
