JULY 2014 TURNED OUT TO BE A HOT ONE AT PANGBORN MEMORIAL AIRPORT
IN WENATCHEE.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS 80.6 DEGREES, WHICH MAKES IT THE HOTTEST
JULY EVER, WITH RECORDS GOING BACK TO 1959. THE PREVIOUS RECORD
HOTTEST JULY WAS 1960 WITH AND AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OF 79.5 DEGREES.
THE AVERAGE HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR JULY 2014 WAS 6.4 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL.

WENATCHEE PANGBORN FIELD HIT 100 OR BETTER FOR 9 CONSECUTIVE DAYS
FROM THE 8TH TO THE 16TH, SHATTERING THE OLD RECORD OF 5 SET BACK IN
1998. THE MONTH WENT OUT WITH ANOTHER 4 DAYS OF TEMPS OVER 100 FOR A
TOTAL OF 13. THIS FAR SURPASSES ANY OTHER JULY ON RECORD, THE NEXT
CLOSEST BEING 8 DAYS OF 100 OR BETTER IN JULY 1996.

NEW RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURES WER SET ON JULY 15, 16, 29 AND 30. AND A
NEW RECORD LOW TEMPERATURE WAS SET ON JULY 24.

ON THE 14TH, WET THUNDERSTORMS MOVED THROUGH THE AREA BRINGING HEAVY
DOWNPOURS TO SOME LOCATIONS. BUT THE LIGHTNING ASSOCIATED WITH
THESE STORMS ALSO STARTED SOME WILDFIRES IN THE CASCADES. THEN ON
THE 17TH, A DRY COLD FRONT BROUGHT STRONG WINDS TO THE AREA.
WENATCHEE AIRPORT GUSTED TO 46 MPH. THE CARLTON COMPLEX FIRE SPREAD
RAPIDLY BURNING OVER 300 STRUCTURES IN PATEROS AND NEARBY AREAS HAS
SINCE BECOME THE LARGEST FIRE IN WASHINGTON STATE HISTORY.

THE 23RD SAW MORE THUNDERSTORMS. BROUGHT RAIN TO THE AREA, ACCOUNTING
FOR ALL OF THE PRECIPITATION RECORDED IN WENATCHEE FOR THE MONTH.
SOME DEBRIS FLOWS OCCURRED ON THE FRESH BURN SCARS FROM THIS SUMMER.
ONE THUNDERSTORM ALSO BROUGHT ONE INCH HAIL TO WINTHROP.
