Looking at June 1 through July 31, there were 47 days with high temperatures at 80 degrees or higher.

That would be the highest total since 2016. Counting days with temperatures of 85 degrees or higher, the 32 days that reached those temperatures, would equal the highest for those two months since 2012.

August is starting off pretty normal with yesterday’s Pittsburgh high temperature reaching 77 degrees. So far, there have been four days with highs below the daily high temperature and one day where it was tied.

Tropical Storm Beta to Drop a Foot of Rain in Texas and Louisiana

(Reuters) - Tropical Storm Beta was predicted to bring a foot of rain to parts of coastal Texas and Louisiana next week as the 24th named storm of this year's Atlantic hurricane season moves ashore on Monday night, the National Hurricane Center said.

Forecasters warned on Sunday that coastal communities could be inundated with floods and see sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 km per hour), though the storm is expected to weaken as it moves inland.

Slow-moving storms that deluge coasts are becoming a regular occurrence, a development that scientists attribute to climate change.

This month marks only the second time in history that the sheer number of storms has forced forecasters to turn to the Greek alphabet for names, having exhausted their alphabetical list of names selected before the season began. The first year storms exceeded given names was 2005, when there were a record 27 named storms.

Beta is the third named storm in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico in less than a month, following Laura and Sally.

Oil and gas producers had been restarting their offshore operations over the weekend after being disrupted by Sally. As Beta neared, Royal Dutch Shell Plc halted some oil production and began evacuating workers from a platform in the Gulf.

Slow-moving Beta could drop between 8 and 12 inches (20 to 30 cm) of rain through Thursday, with up to 20 inches in some isolated areas, the NHC said, warning residents to beware flash flooding.
