NOAA also said July 3, 4 and 5 “all consecutively broke records as the Earth’s hottest day since scientists began recording in 1979.” The Texas Tribune stated, “An unrelenting stretch of blistering days amid an ongoing heat wave has put this summer on track to be one of Texas’ most extreme. In the past decade in Texas, there were 1,000 more days of record-breaking heat than a normal decade.”

For weeks now, Kendall County has been enveloped in an “exceptional drought” bubble on the U.S. Drought Monitor, compiled by the National Drought Mitigation Center, with no significant rain in the forecast.
