Another week of "typical" summer weather, rare this summer. Maybe the hottest week of the season, at least so far. Now the problem is lack of rain, lawns getting brown fast. Hopefully the showers and possible storms will be generous with their moisture. Possible Sunday, more likely Thursday. Typically the only source of rain this time of year unless a tropical system comes this way.
Looking at July -
July starts out at 84 degrees for the average high, and rises only 2 degrees to 86 degrees by the 9th. It stays there most of the month, and all month by some statistics. The latest stats showing that the average high starts dropping by the 17th, noted the average high showing 85 on a local TV station. The average low starts at 64, and rises 3 degrees to 67 by the 19th, but then starts falling again by the 27th. On the way back to winter already...
The record high is 107 in 1978, the record low is 49 in 1949. Have only set one record high in the 2000's, and that only 96, in 2001.
Average precipitation is 3.21". The wettest July was 9.72" in 1969.
Looking back at June -
Slightly above normal temperature wise, a lot about normal rain wise. The average of the high and low came in at 1.4 degrees above average. The average high was 81.2, the average low was 64.6.
The highest temperature was 92 on the 12th, the only other 90 or higher was 91 on the 11th. The lowest was 54 degrees on the 2nd.
Cooling degree days were 261, 48 above average. There were 13 HDD's, season total was 5600, 331 above normal.

There was only 1 clear day, with 13 cloudy days. Pretty gloomy June, but fits in with having all that rain.
