Heating Up but Still No Comparison to Last July

Things have warmed up significantly in the Quad Cities over the last couple days...and there's more warm weather coming up this week!  However, even with highs in the 90s, this is nothing compared to the first half of July 2012!  Last year we had already spiked to 104° by this time in July, that's 104° for the temperature, not the heat index!  Also, while things have dried up this month last July was bone dry!  We had less than a quarter of an inch of rain through the first 16 days of the month...

Finally, check out the average high for the first 16 days:  Last July the AVERAGE high was a whopping 93.4°, this year the average high so far has been a mere 84.9°!
