So far, July has been cloudier than usual with only 43% of possible sunshine. We’ve had five days with high temperatures in the 70s and eight days with high temperatures in the 80s. Temperatures have averaged 3 degrees below average, and now a warmup is on the way. So far this year, we’ve had five days of 90-degree heat, and we’ll be close to 90 degrees for the next two days.
If it seems like it has rained every other day this summer, that’s because that has been the case. We have at least .01″ of rain for 23 of the past 43 days.
July has been a wet month as we’ve already had more than 4 inches of rain. Our unsettled weather pattern will continue this week.
