July is typically Texoma's hottest and driest month. But, mother nature
has been very kind over the past few days with record setting cool
temperatures and rainfall.

Wichita Falls set not one, not two, but three weather records on July 17,

A record low was set at Sheppard Air Force base of 63°F. According to
National Weather Service records, this breaks the old record of 64°F set
back in 1961. (As 7:00 p.m., July 17, 2014, the temperature was 68°F. If 
the temperature drops below 63°F before midnight, then the record low will 
be adjusted.) 

A record minimum high temperature of 72°F was also set, breaking the old
record of 85°F set back in 1955.

Finally, a daily rainfall record of 2.13” was set. This breaks the old record of
1.76” set back in 1911.

Wichita Falls temperature records date back to 1923. Rainfall records date
back to 1897.
