HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — At this point in the Summer we're beginning to realize the heat is here and there's really nothing we can do about it until October or even November. Unless it's 2020, in which case we're trying to find out where the heat actually is.
Historically, July has been warming since 1970, but that that just hasn't been the case this year or really during Summer as a whole. You can read more about July's Warming Trend Here.
