Farewell to Kentucky's second-hottest, ninth-wettest July on record

July 2012 was the second-hottest and ninth-wettest July on record. Only July 1936 had a higher average temperature. "It's very strange; you typically don't get that in one month," WKYT chief meteorologist Chris Bailey said. Current temperatures put the state on pace to be the hottest year on record, he said.
