Warmest July Temps

Posted: 05 Aug 2014 05:42 AM

For some locations in the state, like Ames, this recent July failed to reach 90 degrees. The featured chart displays the yearly maximum temperature reported during July. While the long term average is near 96 degrees, most of the recent years have struggled to reach that level. The 1930s show up prominently on this chart with a stretch of around 15 years all above current long term average. The near term forecast does not hold much hope for significant heat.

Good = 15
Bad = 4
Abstain = 7
