We know the question on your mind, Fort Worthians — when’s it going to cool off? The good news: thanks to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center, we know what temperatures and precipitation trends to expect in our city for June, July, and August.

While exact weather conditions typically can’t be predicted more than a week in advance, here’s a seasonal outlook to help you prepare for the rest of summer.

Reminder: The first day of summer — known as the summer solstice — is on Thursday, June 20.

Jumping up in temp June

Typically in Fort Worth, June’s temperatures fluctuate between an average low of 70° and an average high of 91°, but expect to see more of those 100°-days this year. Pro tip: June has an average daily maximum UV index of 7, so don’t slack on the sunscreen.

Just stay inside July

In July, the average high and low temps are between 76° + 97°. There isn’t much rainfall, so plan for hot, clear days, perfect for splashing around at the newly reopened Forest Park Pool. Did you know? The average first 100-degree day of the year is July 1 + July 31 is historically the hottest day of the year.

Almost over August

Historically, average highs in August drop ~4° to 93°, with an average low of 74°. August leads us towards autumn as the first month of the year when we see temperatures begin to decline — but with a greater chance of high temps this year, that might not happen. Bonus: July’s peak humidity tends to wain a bit in August, with an average of 67% humidity. We’re already sighing with relief.

Make the most of the sunny days

There’s no shortage of things to do in Panther City this summer. Here are just a few of the summer events our team is eyeing: Fort Worth’s Fourth, Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra’s “Sounds of the Summer” concert series + Rockin’ the River.
