Coolest July Ever???

If you take all of the highs and lows of the month, add them all up, and then take the average....you get the "average monthly temperature".

Here are the top 5 coolest Julys on record (since 1871):

  1. 68.0  --  1891

  2. 68.5  --  1965

  3. 69.0  --  1971

  4. 69.1  --  1967

  5. 69.6  --  1962


As of late yesterday, our monthly average temp so far is 67.7 degrees.  That makes it the coolest July ever on record.  There are a few more weeks of the month to go, but unless we see a prolonged period of warmer temps, this month will most likely end up somewhere in the top 5.
