TOTAL RAINFALL...............  0.15 DEPARTURE FROM NORMAL..... -0.03
TOTAL SINCE JANUARY 1ST...... 12.44 DEPARTURE FROM NORMAL.....-11.02
TOTAL SINCE OCT 1ST.......... 30.82 DEPARTURE FROM NORMAL..... -8.61

HIGHEST SLP......... 30.13 ON 24TH LOWEST SLP........ 29.76 ON 18TH

...REMARKS...THE MOST NOTABLE THEME FOR THE MONTH WAS THE WARM
TEMPERATURES ALONG THE COAST. THE OCEAN TEMPERATURES HAVE BEEN IN
THE UPPER 50S TO AROUND 60. NORTHERLY FLOW WAS ONLY ABLE TO
ESTABLISH ITSELF FOR A FEW DAYS AT A TIME AND PERIODIC SOUTHERLY
WINDS HELPED BRING WARM WATER INTO THE AREA. THIS HELPED KEEP
BOTH THE HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES AROUND 3 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.
JULY HAD THE 2ND HIGHEST ALL TIME AVERAGE TEMPERATURE AT 61.3
DEGREES AND IT ALSO SET THE HIGHEST DAILY RECORD FOR JULY. WEAK
OFFSHORE FLOW ON THE 28TH WARMED HIGH TEMPERATURES TO 77 DEGREES
BREAKING THE OLD RECORD HIGH FOR THE MONTH OF 76 DEGREES LAST SET IN
1992. A SECOND DAILY HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD WAS SET ON JULY 29TH
WITH A HIGH OF 75 DEGREES.

RAINFALL WAS ONLY 0.15 INCHES FOR THE MONTH. THIS WAS FAIRLY CLOSE
TO THE 0.18 INCH NORMAL FOR THE MONTH. ALTHOUGH THIS IS CLOSE TO
NORMAL...IT IS STILL BELOW NORMAL. THIS MAKES IT THE 7TH MONTH IN A
ROW WITH BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL.
