Last month was the hottest on record for the entire planet earth.
Polar sea ice melted to record lows as much of earth sweltered in unprecedented heat in July,
while temperatures soared to new heights in the hottest month ever recorded.

Severe thunderstorms and heavy to excessive rainfall possible today
across parts of the Northeast, with the heavy rain threat extending
westward into the Central Plains through Friday.

Showers and thunderstorms are also likely across parts of the
Northwest, Southern Rockies, and Central Gulf Coast.

...Another day of dangerous, potentially record-breaking, the heat across the
Southwest with heat and humidity continuing through Wednesday across parts
of the South.

Showers and thunderstorms are likely ahead of a cold front advancing into
the Northeast this afternoon. Some of the storms could be capable of
severe weather and flash flooding with both WPC and SPC highlighting
slight risks for this region through tonight. The western portion of this
boundary from the Mid-Atlantic to the Central Plains will be slower to
move increasing the threat for heavy to excessive rainfall as moisture
pools along the front. Flash flooding and strong to locally severe
thunderstorms will be possible through the rest of the week. Behind this
front, daytime temperatures could be 5 to 10+ degrees below normal from
the Northern Plains to the Upper Midwest.

Elsewhere, a cold front through the Northwest states will bring scattered
showers and thunderstorms across the Northern Rockies to the Northern High
Plains into Thursday. Locally strong to severe thunderstorms are possible.
Monsoonal moisture into the Southern Rockies/High Plains may also bring a
threat for locally heavy rainfall. And tropical moisture streaming north
through the Gulf of Mexico may support heavy rainfall across parts of the
Central Gulf Coast states Thursday night into Friday.

Excessive heat continues this afternoon across the Southwest where high
temperatures near and above 110 degrees could set records, with daytime
highs well into the 90s expected through the Great Basin as well. A slight
cool down is expected to arrive by Thursday following the passage of a
cold front. Heat advisories also remain in effect through tonight across
parts of the Southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley, with cooler
temperatures arriving on Thursday.

The record warmth also shrank Arctic and Antarctic sea ice to historic lows. #DONews
