REMARKS...

RATHER EXTREME VALUES OF TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION
HIGHLIGHTED JULY. THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF PRECIPITATION RANKED AS THE
SEVENTH HIGHEST TOTAL OF ANY JULY ON RECORD...WITH MUCH OF THIS
COMING IN TWO EVENTS.  THE FIRST WAS FROM JULY 6 TO JULY 7 WHEN
4.22 INCHES FELL.  THIS PLACED AS THE SIXTH HIGHEST AMOUNT OF ANY
TWO-DAY SPAN IN JULY.  THE SECOND WAS ON JULY 29 WHEN 2.09 INCHES
OF RAIN ACCUMULATED...BREAKING THE RECORD FOR THE MOST
PRECIPITATION MEASURED ON THIS DAY.  AS IS FAIRLY COMMON IN
JULY...THE HEAT WAS QUITE HIGH AND PERSISTENTLY.  THE AVERAGE
PEAK HEAT INDEX FROM JULY 12 THROUGH JULY 28 WAS 104
DEGREES...WITH VALUES NEAR 120 ON JULY 13 AND JULY 24. THE COOLER
EXTREME OCCURRED ON JULY 7 AND 8 WHEN THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE
MEASURED ON BOTH DAYS WAS ONLY 71...SETTING RECORD LOWEST MAXIMUM
TEMPERATURES FOR BOTH DAYS.
