A new weather record for Louisville has been set for the month of July. It didn’t get over 89 degrees for the entire month. This “low-high” record hasn’t been broken since weather records have been kept for the city. It’s been a real treat for us. Usual days of Louisville in the summer, you see only mad dogs and Englishmen out in the noon day sun.
Last Tuesday brought our city a freak thunderstorm that dumped seven inches of rain in just over two hours. This combined with the large amounts of rain we had in July, caused a lot of flash flooding throughout Louisville. The Churchill Downs track looked like it could have been used for boat races.
Now that we’ve been thoroughly spoiled by the cooler summer of July, it’s time to pay the piper; this weekend will be well into the 90’s with high humidity. Can you say swelter?
