Memphis International Airport set a record on Tuesday, 7/28/09, for the coolest high temperature for the day as the mercury peaked at 79 degrees, thanks to persistent cloud cover and scattered showers. This breaks the old record of 80 degrees set last in 1946. The high temperature in Bartlett also peaked at 79 degrees.
An abnormally cool July will likely continue through the end of the month. With more rain forecast this week, hot temperatures are not expected before the start of August, likely making this month one of the coolest Julys on record.
