SHREVEPORT RECORDED BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND SLIGHTLY ABOVE
NORMAL RAINFALL FOR JULY OF 2014.  THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH BEGAN
NEAR NORMAL WHILE A MINOR HEAT WAVE DEVELOPED DURING THE SECOND WEEK
OF JULY.  AT MID MONTH...A SIGNIFICANT...ARGUABLY PERHAPS
HISTORIC...COLD FRONT BROUGHT MUCH COOLER WEATHER.  INDEED
SHREVEPORT BROKE FOUR DAILY COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORDS AND
TIED TWO DAILY LOW TEMPERATURE RECORDS FOR THIS JULY.

JULY OF 2014 NOW RANKS AS THE 7TH COOLEST JULY ON RECORD AND THE
COOLEST JULY SINCE THE JULY OF 1976 THAT ALSO RANKS AS THE COOLEST
ON RECORD WITH AN AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE OF 78.6 DEGREES.

THIS JULY DID NOT EVEN RANK IN THE TOP 20 WETTEST JULYS FOR
RAINFALL.  AT LEAST... SHREVEPORT RECEIVED TIMELY RAINFALL DURING
THE LATTER HALF OF JULY AFTER ENDURING A TWO WEEK DRY SPELL THAT
BEGAN DURING THE END OF JUNE AND CONTINUED THROUGH JULY 11TH.

FOR JULY 17TH...SHREVEPORT RECORDED A WET AND RAINY DAY WITH TWO
DAILY RECORDS.  THE HIGH TEMPERATURE THAT DAY ONLY REACHED 79
DEGREES...AND BROKE THE COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD FOR THE
DATE.  THE FORMER RECORD WAS 81 DEGREES SET IN 1952.  ALSO
SHREVEPORT TALLIED A QUITE BENEFICIAL 2.33 INCHES OF RAINFALL...THE
FORMER DAILY RAINFALL RECORD WAS 1.75 INCHES SET IN 2010.

FOR JULY 18TH...SHREVEPORT RECORDED ANOTHER DOUBLE DAILY RECORD
DAY.  THE LOW TEMPERATURE THAT MORNING RECEDED TO 66 DEGREES...AND
TIED THE DAILY LOW TEMPERATURE RECORD LAST SET IN 1991.  THE HIGH
TEMPERATURE THAT DAY ONLY ROSE TO 72 DEGREES...AND BROKE THE DAILY
COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD OF 77 DEGREES SET DURING 1911.

THE VERY MILD WEATHER CONTINUED INTO JULY 19TH AS SHREVEPORT BROKE
YET ANOTHER DAILY COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD.  THE MERCURY ONLY
ROSE TO 73 DEGREES AND BROKE THE PREVIOUS DAILY RECORD OF 79 DEGREES
SET DURING 1967.

FOR JULY 21ST...THE MERCURY RECEDED TO 64 DEGREES FOR THE MORNING
LOW TEMPERATURE AND TIED THE DAILY LOW TEMPERATURE RECORD LAST SET
DURING 1984.

SHOWERY AND COOL WEATHER ARRIVED WITH YET ANOTHER UNSEASONABLY
SIGNIFICANT COLD FRONT AT MONTH`S END.  THE HIGH TEMPERATURE DURING
JULY 31ST ONLY REACHED 76 DEGREES...AND BROKE THE PREVIOUS DAILY
COOLEST HIGH TEMPERATURE RECORD OF 78 DEGREES SET IN 1925.

IF SHREVEPORT CAN MANAGE TO CONTINUE THIS MILD WEATHER THROUGH LATE
SEPTEMBER...IT COULD BE THE FIRST SUMMER WITHOUT TRIPLE DIGIT HIGH
TEMPERATURES SINCE THOSE OF 2002 AND 2003.  THE HIGH TEMPERATURE FOR
ALL OF 2014 OCCURRED DURING JULY 13TH WITH THE MERCURY REACHING 99
DEGREES.
