    No month in Washington's official weather history was ever hotter than the month just past.

    Many Washington residents suspected that. But on Monday, the National Weather Service confirmed it.

    The average temperature of July 2010 was 83.1 degrees. In all the years since 1871 in which the weather service has kept records for Washington, no month has ever had an average temperature higher than that.

    Coolest July on record in southern Fornicalia.

    The again, jerkwagons like you blabber on and on about how climate and weather are completely dissociated, when the weather goes against your doom-n-gloom bullsqueezins.

    In Australia...

    LIGHTNING over Darwin in July is unheard of, but storm chaser Jacci Ingham managed to snap this dramatic display from her balcony at Fisherman's Wharf on Saturday night.

    Unseasonable rain isn't the only thing that appears to have ruined this year's dry.

    Yesterday, the weather bureau officially confirmed last month was the hottest July on record.

    In Rhode Island...

    July was more than 4 degrees above normal and the second-hottest month on record for Providence, according to a preliminary report from the National Weather Service in Taunton, Mass.

    The average temperature last month for Providence was 77.5 degrees. That’s 4.2 degrees higher than the normal 73.3 degrees from 1971 until 2000.

    Based on that average, July 2010 was the second hottest July and the second hottest month on record for Providence, the weather service says.

    You might not feel like celebrating, but Richmond just set a bunch of heat records.

    Tops among them, last month was the hottest July on record with an overall average temperature of 82.8 degrees.

    That topped the 17-year-old record of 82.4 degrees, the National Weather Service said.

    The month before was Richmond's hottest June on record, making the previous two months the warmest June-July period since record-keeping began in the late 1800s.
