A normal finish to a cool July
Highs this last week of July will top out in the low/mid 80s. Normal high is 83°, so this is actually what July should be doing.
This month will still be in the top coolest Julys thanks to the majority of the month having below normal temperatures. As of Monday morning, we rank # 2...but the warmer temps will knock that down a bit this week.
One positive aspect of the cooler than normal temps has been a reduction in air conditioning use. This month has produced only one-third the normal level of cooling needed in a typical July.
