LUBBOCK, Texas — Weather officials say Texas just finished the hottest June through August on record in the U.S.
National Weather Service meteorologist Victor Murphy told The Associated Press Thursday that Texas' 86.8 degree average beat out Oklahoma's 85.2 degrees in 1934.
That Dust Bowl year is now third on the list for the three-month span, behind No. 2 Oklahoma's heat wave this June through August (86.5 degrees).
Congrats. We did it. But may we never approach it again.
