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.
