Central Texas has had 31 consecutive days of below-average temperatures in June and July, not even reaching 100 degrees.

The highest temperature recorded this year was 94 degrees.

Climatologists at the National Weather Service called this pattern "wacky weather."

KXAN Austin News weathercaster Mary Lee was in New Braunfels Friday, where she observed more than 7 inches of rainfall.

Rain poured at the warning forecast center, flooding the streets, and wet summer weather has been recorded all over Central Texas, especially in New Braunfels.

Husband and wife Kris and Kris Allison began a long and wet trek home.

"I just couldn't believe it, this could happen in an hour and a half!" said wife Kris Allison. "We just went to the store, and thought 'it's just a little rain.' We came back, and we're going to have to leave the car on the side of the road."

"You are saying you tried to wade through this?!" said Lee. "How high did the water get up to?"

"It got above my knees," said husband Kris Allison. "So I don't want to risk driving my car through it, and floating off, so we're gonna try to wade into our houses, where our pets are waiting for us."

National Weather Service meteorologist Larry Eblen has tracked Central Texas weather for more than three decades, and said this summer's weather has been unbelievable.

"I have never seen a summer so very cool and so rainy, consistently through the summer," said Eblen.

In July, the average high temperature at Camp Mabry was 89 degrees and the normal high is 95 degrees.

At Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the average was 88 degrees, far below the normal of 94 degrees.

"I wish we had something, one single thing we could point to," said Eblen, adding there was no formula that could explain the summer weather patterns.

"Other than the fact that its one of those upper-level lows, that gets 'lost' and stays in Texas too long," said Eblen. "It's really been mostly that."

The NWS predicted a return to normal summer temperatures starting next week.
