The streak of high temperatures this summer can be attributed to La Niña, a weather pattern characterized by cooling waters across the central and eastern pacific oceans, resulting in warmer and drier conditions across Central Texas.
Additionally, drought conditions have played a role in the above-average temperatures. Only a trace of precipitation was recorded at Camp Mabry for the month of July, according to the National Weather Service. This is the 4th time in history that Austin didn't receive measurable rain in July.
Get ready for more hot days as August is typically the hottest month of the year.
