On the Fourth of July, average temperatures across all of Southeast Texas continue to rise. Summer is officially about two weeks old, but the area has been warming significantly since the middle and end of spring.

On the Fourth of July, there has been only one tropical storm or hurricane that has made landfall anywhere between Matagorda Bay and the Texas-Louisiana border since 1871. Way back in 1874, a hurricane made landfall in the Matagorda Bay area. Since then, not a single tropical cyclone has made landfall along the upper Texas coast on Independence Day.
