Austin TX Real Estate - Hill Country Austin Lakeway Homes for Sale: Austin TX Weather Missed the Record

Austin TX Weather Missed the Record

Austin tx weather summerThis was a very HOT Summer yet, Austin TX Weather Missed the Record!  But in fact, it was the hottest Summer ever recorded!!

The 2009 average temperature for June 1 - August 31 was 89.1 degrees.  That includes the overnight temperatures!  Each and every day was miserable, especially since 2008 had the second hottest average at 86.7 degrees.

Within all these hot days, we were trying to break the all time record of 69 days over 100 degrees.  At day 48, it looked like an easy record to break.  At day 60, it still looked like there would be no problem... and then we got a cool front with highs only in the mid- to high 90's. 

No problem, we still had a couple of weeks left... and we made it to day 68!  One day short of tieing the record.  We went through all this scorching heat to be in second place! 

However, there were a couple of more records we set this summer:
July and August 2009 are the top two hottest months ever recorded with 89.5 and 89.1 degrees respectfully.

And since everything is bigger in Texas, and we like to go out with a bang, yesterday was officially the last day of summer and we ended with a high of 96 degrees.  Today is the first official day of Fall and we're barely in the 70's right now with a lot of rain. 

We like rain as we didn't get much of any this summer, and we're in a 2 year Austin drought, but what a huge change in seasons in just one day.

You won't dare catch me saying we can break that record next year.  I hope we never come close to that record again!

Hi Donna... I thought for sure that you were going to break the record!  Are the lakes starting to fill up again from the rain?

Steve, After the last round of rains, Lake Travis went up 1 foot, but came right back down 2 days later.  The rain started over night, and I haven't watched the news today to see if there was a lake reading or not, but it's going to take a lot more than this to make a small dent in the lake.
