    July set a number of heat records in the US, as seven states report all-time high temperatures

    July set a number of heat records in the US, as seven states report all-time high temperatures over 90F that lasted for weeks

    • The US was plagued by intense heat in July, making it the 11th hottest on record
    • Seven states set all-time records with temperatures over 90F and even 100F 
    • Experts were more surprised that some areas saw heat for weeks 

    The US has been plagued with intense heat this summer, but a new report reveals some states recorded their hottest July ever and others tied with previous years.

    The average temperature across the nation was 75.7F, but seven states including New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland hit all-time records – averages were in the 80s and peak temperatures exceeded 90 degrees.

    July ranked as the 11th warmest the 126-year record, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

    Along with being a steamy month, July also brought tropical activity with three storms and two hurricanes.

    The average temperature across the nation was 75.7F, but seven states including New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland hit all-time records – averages were in the 80s and peak temperatures exceeded 90 degrees

    Seven states — Virginia (tie), Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania (tie), New Jersey, Connecticut (tie) and New Hampshire — had record high temperatures in the sweltering month of July.

    Although Florida is known to be warm in July, it surpassed previous years with Miami reporting not only its hottest July, but it was also deemed its all-time warmest month.

    High temperatures can occur in the Northeast in July, but what surprised experts was how long they lingered.

    Parts of New Hampshire were 90 degrees for a straight 15 days and New York City spent 14 days in the same warm temperatures.

    Richmond, Virginia spent three days roasting triple digits and Washington DC broke a record for the number of days spent at 90 degrees – it reported 28 straight days in July.

    Alaska had a statewide temperature of 26 degrees, which is 0.2 degrees above the average.

    Although the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) found 33 percent of the US in drought last month, it also reported above-average precipitation for much of the northern and central Plains, along with the Great Lakes, Mississippi Value and Gulf Coast.

    Below-average precipitation fell across much of the West and portions of the Deep South, central Plains, Ohio Valley and Southeast.

    The Atlantic Hurricane season was very active last month, bringing three tropical storms and two named hurricanes.

    In the late weeks of June, excessive heat warnings were set for 21 states – from the Great Plains to New England – with many areas facing a heatwave with temperatures of 112F.

    The warning affected around 75 million Americans, but about 280 million people – or 87 percent of the US – experienced temperatures at or above 90 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Heat over the eastern US does not seem to give up anytime soon, as the western part of the Bermuda High is still moving west and bringing warm, humid weather to coastal areas along the Eastern Seaboard.
