Other than the fact that your humble author lived through it, the fact that the calendar month just concluded was the warmest ever recorded in Austin TX (and that is pretty warm) is perhaps not a matter of great concern for readers of this blog.
Update: Same deal, hottest month on record, for both Houston and College Station:
THE AVERAGE JULY TEMPERATURE AT COLLEGE STATION AND HOUSTON HOBBY(PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE HOUSTON/GALVESTON TX 1018 AM CDT SAT AUG 1 2009)
AIRPORT ARE NOW THE WARMEST AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURES EVER
RECORDED FOR ANY MONTH AT ANY TIME. IN OTHER WORDS...THERE HAS NOT
BEEN A MONTH WITH AN AVERAGE TEMPERATURE THAT WAS WARMER THAN WHAT
JUST OCCURRED AT EITHER COLLEGE STATION OR HOUSTON HOBBY.
