TEMPERATURES, AND NEAR TO BELOW AVERAGE TOTAL RAINFALL. AVERAGE

TOWARD THE NORTH, ALTHOUGH THERE WERE TYPICAL SIGNIFICANT SHORT
DISTANCE DIFFERENCES DUE TO THE MORE SHOWERY NATURE OF RAINFALL.
SIGNIFICANT RAINFALL DAYS ACROSS THE REGION INCLUDED THE 5TH, 6TH,
12TH, 28TH AND 29TH WITH AN INTERVENING DRY SPELL BETWEEN THE 14TH
AND 27TH WHERE VERY LITTLE RAINFALL FELL.

INCREASED LIKELIHOOD OF ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES. THERE ARE NO
STRONG CLIMATE SIGNALS THAT WOULD POINT TOWARD AN UNUSUALLY WET OR
DRY MONTH.

DURING THE MONTH OF JULY THE AVERAGE HIGH AT CARIBOU PEAKS AT 76
DEGREES FROM THE 11TH THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH. THE AVERAGE LOW
PEAKS OUT AT 55 DEGREES FROM THE 10TH THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH.

TEMPERATURE PEAKS OUT AT 80 DEGREES FROM THE 13TH THROUGH THE END OF
THE MONTH. THE AVERAGE LOW PEAKS OUT AT 58 DEGREES FROM THE 10TH
