The latest NOAA report for the US for July 2016 is out and shows that Florida reported its warmest July ever this year, with Georgia and South Carolina as well as the entire Southeast at 3rd warmest and North Carolina as the 4th warmest. The Southeast was 11th driest on record (1895-present). You can see all the ranking maps at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/temp-and-precip/us-maps/1/201607#us-maps-select and read the summary at http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/sotc/summary-info/national/201607.
The report also points out that for the year to date, the Southeast is the only part of the country that is not well above the long-term average temperature. The biggest anomalies are in northern parts of the country.
