Another Memphis temperature record bit the dust today, as the coolest high temperature ever on this date was set today. The previous record of 82 degrees was set 131 YEARS AGO, but was smashed by today's high of only 77 (which incidentally occurred in the wee hours of the morning). The daytime high temperature was 76 degrees. This also marks only the second time on record that a July high temperature did not make it out of the 70s and it ties the record for the coolest "meteorological summer" day in Memphis' officially recorded weather history. (Meteorological summer is defined as June, July, and August.) What were the only other two "summer" days to have a high of just 77? June 5th and 6th, 2008 - yes, just last year!
