The first day of July is continuing last month's weather trend.

It was the hottest June on record in Albany.

The lowest high temperature we had last month was 92, and we topped 100-degrees 11-days. The pool at the Albany's Boys and Girls Club sure has been busy as kids try to beat the heat. They've seen around 400 kids a day. It got so crowded, they had to start scheduling groups who want to use the pool.

"They're coming from the Sheriff's program, they're coming from the City Recreation, they're coming from daycares, dance students, it has gotten so now where coach king has to schedule different groups different times during the week to come," said Jason Belk, Boys & Girls Club Service Director.

As many as 200 kids signed up for swimming lessons. Recent afternoon showers have helped improve the conditions in creeks and rivers in south Georgia. Water officials say those will need to continue if temperatures continue like they were in June.
