Looks like thunderstorms later today (Sunday) could be our only hope of any rain this coming week. After today odds less than 50%. Lets hope good rain, not severe storms. Brown grass not good...
And whatever happened to the hot summers? We normally have 21 days 90 or above. Last summer only 16, this year, now over halfway through summer, only 8 days 90 or above. The
outlook does not see any heat waves right now, and saw on TV that some cities will have their coldest July in history.
The normal high has dropped from 86 to 85, so here comes fall and winter down the road, again...
We start with an average high of 85 degrees (8 above beginning of June), and end up at 85 degrees (same as the end of June). It rises to 86 on the 5th through the 23rd. This means that we start our slide back to winter on the 24th...already? Seems like it just got warm.
It has been as warm as 107 in 1966, and as cold as 49 in 1945.
Average rainfall is .78" less than June, at 3.21".
