Global warming may be taking another black eye as AccuWeather.com reports an unusually cold July, which is most pronounced in the Northeast of the United States.

While it has been unusually hot in the Southwest, AccuWeather reports that 1,044 daily record low temperatures have been broken thus far in the month of July, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NCDC).

NCDC has also recorded "low highs" for the month as well, and when that figure is added to the mix, the number of record-breakers increases to 2,925 — slated to pass 3,000 before the end of the month.

The period of July 17-20 was the worst, according to AccuWeather’s gleaning of the NCDC records — with more than 1,600 weather stations scattered across the country breaking records.

Furthermore in the survey, there are some dramatic “departure from average temperatures” figures thus far in July. That compilation of departures includes "-10.0" in Pennsylvania. Double-digit deficits over a month are rare, notes AccuWeather.

The majority of stations are reporting departures below normal thus far — with only Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas having stations reporting above normal.

With temperatures usually peaking in the dog days of July, there are temps in the 50s in every state, and 40s in most, with some 30s.

There is also an significant lack of 85-degree days in the Northeast through July 20th.

Buffalo, Albany, Boston, Chicago, and Cincinnati have all logged 0 days in July above 85. Detroit, Pittsburgh, and New York have logged only 1 each.
