Weather Blog: This Florida city just experienced its warmest month in recorded history


It’s no surprise that summers in Florida are hot and humid, but this year, conditions have been hotter than usual.

Almost every day this July ran above average for Fort Myers. Last month ended up ranking as the third warmest July in recorded history, with an average temperature of 85.3 degrees.

In the bigger picture, every month this year has been warmer than usual. The influence of a La Ni?a pattern and climate change are to blame for the scorching temperatures.

As hot as Fort Myers has been, another Florida city beat out the region for intense heat. Tampa not only experienced its warmest July on record but its warmest month in recorded history. Temperature data for Tampa goes all the way back to the 1800s.

As we head into August, there doesn’t seem to be hints of a cool down any time soon. According to the Climate Prediction Center, warmer than usual conditions are expected for most of the country, especially the upper Midwest. The only region expected cooler than usual conditions is the desert Southwest as they continue to take on monsoon.
