Summer is still very much alive and well given it is August, but environmentalists are hoping it’s a more tame month than July was in terms of hot temperatures.

The trend certainly wreaked havoc on the Miami area, with sweltering heat being felt throughout the month.

Here are the July stats for temperatures in the Miami area, according to data from the National Weather Service.

  • Normal average high in July: 90.6
