August 3, 2018
July 2018 had a classic variety of summer weather. There was: 1) an ongoing heatwave to begin the month; 2) dry conditions for the most part in the first half of the month; 3) some warm, exceedingly humid conditions with widespread, at times heavy, showers the second half of the month (courtesy of the subtropics); and 4) some “top 10” sunny dry days following several cold front passages (thank you Canada).
The average statewide July temperature was 76.1°. This is 1.5° above the 1981–2010 average and ranks as the 15th warmest July in 124 years of records (2.3° above the full period of record average). Eleven of the 18 warmest Julys since 1895 have occurred in the past 20 years (since 1999). The average daily maximum temperature across the state was 86.8°, which is 1.8° above average and ranks as the 15th warmest on record. The 65.5° average minimum was 1.2° above the 1981–2010 average and comes in as the 20th warmest.
