I'm not sure about yourself or any of the other people who follow this blog, but I've been following weather for over 50 years and never heard the tern "Heat Done" until last month. Then again, I had never heard the term "Polar Vortex" until a year or two ago.


Yeah, I think it used to simply be called a high pressure system, the Bermuda High or a heat wave. But now the spin doctors get involved.


This July, as well as the Julys of 1928, 1969 and 1975 are the only four since 1900 with at least seven days that produced 0.50" or more of rain. However, this was the "driest" of these four Julys. 8.89" of rain fell in 1928, 7.37" in 1969 and 11.77" fell in 1975.
