...GREAT LAKES WATER LEVELS REMAIN WELL ABOVE NORMAL IN JULY...

WATER LEVELS ON THE WESTERN GREAT LAKES REMAINED NEARLY STEADY IN
JULY AS LIMITED EVAPORATION CAUSED BY RELATIVELY CHILLY WATER
TEMPERATURES OFFSET GENERALLY BELOW NORMAL RAINFALL AND RUNOFF IN
THE LAKES DRAINAGE BASINS. AT THE END OF JULY...WATER LEVELS ON LAKE
SUPERIOR WERE 7 TO 8 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL AND ABOUT 1 INCH HIGHER
THAN THE JULY AVERAGE IN 2014. THE LEVEL ON LAKES MICHIGAN AND HURON
WAS 6 TO 7 INCHES ABOVE AVERAGE ON 7/30 AND 10 TO 11 INCHES HIGHER
THAN DURING JULY 2014.

                         JULY CLIMATE HIGHLIGHTS

HIGHEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...95 AT PELKIE IN BARAGA COUNTY AND
                                STONINGTON IN DELTA COUNTY ON 7/27

LOWEST REPORTED TEMPERATURE...31 AT KENTON IN FAR SOUTHERN HOUGHTON
                               COUNTY ON 7/1

HIGHEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...67.8 DEGREES AT BARAGA

LOWEST AVERAGE TEMPERATURE...63.2 DEGREES AT CLARKSBURG/CHAMPION
                              IN MARQUETTE COUNTY

HIGHEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...3.57 INCHES AT MUNISING

LOWEST MONTHLY PRECIPITATION...0.95 INCHES AT MANISTIQUE

ALTHOUGH THE FIRST WEEK OF JULY FEATURED VERY COOL WEATHER OVER
UPPER MICHIGAN WITH AN UPPER TROUGH PREVAILING IN EASTERN NORTH
AMERICA...A BUILDING RIDGE IN THE PLAINS BECAME AN INCREASINGLY
DOMINANT INFLUENCE THE REST OF THE MONTH. SO EVEN THOUGH THERE WERE
SOME PERIODS OF COOLER WEATHER AT TIMES AFTER THE FIRST WEEK
FOLLOWING COLD FRONTAL PASSAGES ASSOCIATED WITH DISTURBANCES EMBEDDED
IN THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT BETWEEN THE EASTERN TROUGH AND PLAINS
RIDGE...EXPANDING HOT AIR IN THE PLAINS MADE GREATER AND MORE
PERSISTENT INROADS INTO THE GREAT LAKES THROUGH THE MONTH. THE
RESULT WAS A MEAN JULY TEMPERATURE THAT ENDED UP A BIT ABOVE NORMAL
AT MOST PLACES BECAUSE THE WARMTH THE LAST WEEK OF JULY WAS A BIT
MORE ANOMALOUS THEN THE COOL WEATHER THAT PREVAILED DURING THE FIRST
WEEK. MEAN MONTHLY TEMPERATURES BETWEEN ABOUT 63 AND 68 DEGREES WERE
6 TO 12 DEGREES HIGHER THAN THE JUNE AVERAGES...WITH THE LARGER
INCREASE AT LOCATIONS NEAR THE GREAT LAKES DUE TO THE SHARP INCREASE
IN NEARSHORE WATER TEMPERATURES FROM JUNE INTO JULY.

THE COOLEST CANADIAN AIRMASS TO INVADE THE UPPER LAKES IN JULY WAS
OVERHEAD ON 7/1...WHEN THE MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURE AVERAGED ABOUT 10
DEGREES BELOW NORMAL. MORNING LOWS ON 7/1 AND 7/2 DIPPED INTO THE
30S AT SOME OF THE COOLER INTERIOR LOCATIONS...INCLUDING THE MONTHLY
MINIMUM OF 31 AT KENTON IN FAR SOUTHERN HOUGHTON COUNTY ON 7/1.
FOLLOWING ANOTHER COOL AIR OUTBREAK AT MID MONTH...THE THERMOMETER
READ AS LOW AS THE 30S AT SOME OF THE INLAND COOL SPOTS ON 7/15 AND
7/16. DURING THE WARM SPELL THE LAST WEEK OF JULY...READINGS SURGED
INTO THE 90S AT SOME PLACES AWAY FROM THE MODERATING INFLUENCE OF
THE GREAT LAKES ON 7/26...7/27 AND 7/28. AT SOME OF THESE
LOCATIONS...THIS WAS THE FIRST TIME SINCE AUGUST 2013 THE MERCURY
HAD REACHED 90 OR HIGHER. OVERALL...7/27 WAS THE WARMEST OF THESE
THREE DAYS AND FEATURED THE MONTHLY HIGHEST TEMPERATURE OF 95
REPORTED AT PELKIE IN BARAGA COUNTY AND STONINGTON IN DELTA COUNTY.

THE NORTHWEST FLOW ALOFT THAT PREVAILED MOST OF THE TIME BETWEEN THE
PLAINS RIDGE AND THE EASTERN TROUGH ALSO LIMITED THE INFLUXES OF
MOISTURE THAT COULD FUEL SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM DEVELOPMENT OVER
UPPER MICHIGAN. IN FACT...THERE WAS ONLY ONE WIDESPREAD RAIN EVENT
OVER UPPER MICHIGAN THAT OCCURRED ON 7/6. MOST PLACES MEASURED 1.50
TO 3.00 INCHES OF RAIN IN JULY...TOTALS ABOUT 50 TO 75 PERCENT OF
THE MONTHLY NORM. BUT DUE TO THE SPOTTY NATURE OF SUMMER
CONVECTION...JULY RAINFALLS AMOUNTS VARIED FROM ONLY 0.95 INCH AT
MANISTIQUE...ABOUT 30 PERCENT OF AVERAGE...TO AS MUCH AS 3.57 INCHES
AT MUNISING...ALMOST 110 PERCENT OF NORMAL AT THAT SITE.

THERE WERE WIDESPREAD REPORTS OF AN INCH OR MORE OF RAIN DURING
THE WIDESPREAD RAINFALL ON 7/6 AS A WAVE OF LOW PRESSURE MOVED
NORTHEAST ALONG A SLOWLY MOVING COLD FRONT. PRECIPITATION TOTALS
WERE GREATEST OVER THE CENTRAL UPPER PENINSULA...WHERE AS MUCH AS
2.00 INCHES FELL AT A LOCATION NEAR NEGAUNEE IN MARQUETTE COUNTY.

SEVERE WEATHER WAS RELATIVELY UNCOMMON IN JULY. SOME STRONG
THUNDERSTORMS MOVING NEAR THE WISCONSIN BORDER DURING THE EVENING ON
7/13 AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT DROPPED SOME LOCALLY HEAVY RAINS UP 1.49
INCHES NEAR QUINNESEC IN DICKINSON COUNTY. WINDS ASSOCIATED WITH
THESE STORMS GUSTED AS HIGH AS 40 MPH AT MENOMINEE. A COUPLE OF
STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS THAT STRUCK SOUTHEAST UPPER MICHIGAN DURING
THE EARLY MORNING HOURS ON 7/25 CAUSED DAMAGING WINDS NEAR ROCK IN
DELTA COUNTY AND DROPPED AS MUCH AS 1.73 INCHES OF RAIN NEAR GARDEN
CORNERS IN DELTA COUNTY. FOLLOWING A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE EARLY ON
7/29...WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS GUSTED AS HIGH AS 40 TO 45 MPH OVER
THE WEST THROUGH THE DAY. A THUNDERSTORM MOVING THROUGH WESTERN
UPPER MICHIGAN CAUSED WIND GUSTS AS HIGH AS 48 MPH NEAR BESSEMER IN
GOGEBIC COUNTY DURING THE AFTERNOON ON 7/30.

                         JULY WEATHER SUMMARY

MORE TO COME LATER.

                           AUGUST FORECAST

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING EQUAL CHANCES OF
AN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY MEAN TEMPERATURE AND ABOVE AND
BELOW NORMAL MONTHLY PRECIPITATION OVER ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN IN
AUGUST 2015.

                          AUGUST CLIMATOLOGY

AFTER PEAKING IN JULY...AVERAGE TEMPERATURES IN AUGUST BEGIN TO
SLIDE AS THE SUN CONTINUES ITS LATE YEAR JOURNEY SOUTH. POSSIBLE
SUNSHINE DECLINES FROM 892 MINUTES ON 8/1 TO 804 MINUTES ON 8/31...
AND AVERAGE TEMPERATURES ARE ONE TO TWO DEGREES LOWER THAN IN JULY.

BUT SUMMER ACROSS UPPER MICHIGAN IS NOT OVER YET IN AUGUST. ALTHOUGH
100 DEGREE TEMPERATURES ARE RARE DURING THE EIGHTH MONTH...SUCH HEAT
IS NOT UNPRECEDENTED. IN AUGUST 2001...BARK RIVER IN DELTA COUNTY
SAW THE MERCURY RISE AS HIGH AS 102 ON 8/7 AND 101 ON 8/6 DURING A
TORRID HEAT WAVE BETWEEN 8/5 AND 8/8. 8/5/47 GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD
BOOKS OVER MUCH OF UPPER MICHIGAN AS THE HOTTEST AUGUST DAY SINCE
RECORDS BEGAN. IRON MOUNTAIN (101)...IRONWOOD (101)...AND DOWNTOWN
MARQUETTE (102) ALL RECORDED THEIR ALL TIME HIGHEST AUGUST
TEMPERATURES ON THAT SWELTERING DAY. AUGUST 1947 IS ALSO THE WARMEST
AUGUST ON RECORD AT IRONWOOD (73.4 DEGREE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE)...
IRON MOUNTAIN (72.4)...AND NEWBERRY (69.6).

ALTHOUGH SUMMER HEAT CAN STILL GRIP THE AREA IN AUGUST...COOLER AIR
MASSES MAKE MORE FREQUENT VISITS TO THE NORTHERN GREAT LAKES DURING
THE EIGHTH MONTH. AS THE NIGHTS LENGTHEN IN AUGUST...FROST BECOMES
A  GREATER THREAT OVER ESPECIALLY INTERIOR LOCATIONS AWAY FROM THE
MODERATING INFLUENCE OF THE GREAT LAKES (LAKE WATER TEMPERATURES
TYPICALLY REACH THEIR HIGHEST LEVELS IN MID TO LATE AUGUST). THE
LOW  TEMPERATURE AT IRONWOOD HAS REACHED FREEZING AS EARLY AS
8/4...IN  1907. BETWEEN 8/19 AND 8/21 IN 2000...SOME SHELTERED
INLAND LOCATIONS REPORTED FROST. AUGUST 2004 WAS THE COOLEST EIGHTH
MONTH IN RECENT MEMORY. MONTHLY TEMPERATURES AVERAGED 3 TO 6 DEGREES
BELOW NORMAL...AND AUGUST 2004 GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD BOOKS IN THE
LIST OF TOP 10 COOLEST AT ALMOST ALL REPORTING STATIONS. PATCHY
FROST WAS OBSERVED OVER THE COOLER INLAND LOCATIONS IN AUGUST 2004
BETWEEN 8/19 AND 8/21.

PRECIPITATION IN AUGUST CAN BE QUITE VARIABLE DEPENDING ON THE
FREQUENCY OF THUNDERSTORMS. THE DRIEST EIGHTH MONTH IN RECENT YEARS
OCCURRED IN 2008...WHEN MANY PLACES ENDURED ONE OF THE TOP FIVE
DRIEST AUGUSTS ON RECORD IN THE ABSENCE OF MUCH CONVECTION. ONLY
0.42 INCH AND 0.44 INCH OF RAIN FELL IN THE CITY OF MARQUETTE AND AT
THE MARQUETTE NWS IN THAT DRY MONTH...WHICH GOES DOWN IN THE RECORD
BOOKS AS THE DRIEST AUGUST ON RECORD AT THOSE LOCATIONS. 2007 ALSO
FEATURED A TOP TEN DRIEST EIGHTH MONTH AT MOST LOCATIONS THAT HELPED
DROP LAKE SUPERIOR TO A RECORD LOW LEVEL. ON THE OTHER HAND...SLOW
MOVING THUNDERSTORMS CAN STILL THREATEN THE UPPER PENINSULA WITH
TORRENTIAL RAIN. A TOTAL OF 11.15 INCHES OF RAIN INUNDATED IRONWOOD
DURING AUGUST 1941.

                        OUTLOOK FOR FALL

THE CLIMATE PREDICTION CENTER (CPC) IS FORECASTING AN EQUAL CHANCE
OF AN ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL 3-MONTH AVERAGE TEMPERATURE AND ABOVE
AND BELOW AVERAGE 3-MONTH PRECIPITATION OVER ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN
IN SEPTEMBER THROUGH NOVEMBER 2015.

NOTE THAT STATISTICS FOR THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE OFFICE IN
NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP ARE BASED ON RECORDS WHICH BEGAN IN OCTOBER 1961.
THIRTY YEAR NORMALS USED ARE FOR THE PERIOD OF 1981 THROUGH 2010.

INCHES. ALL CLIMATE DATA LISTED IN THIS PRODUCT ARE UNOFFICIAL. FOR
