...BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION THIS MONTH...

TEMPERATURES AVERAGED A TOUCH BELOW NORMAL IN JULY AND PRECIPITATION
WAS SPREAD RATHER EVENLY THROUGHOUT THE MONTH LEADING TO A SLIGHTLY
BELOW NORMAL JULY. THERE WERE A COUPLE PERIODS OF WARM TEMPERATURES
AND VERY HUMID CONDITIONS, BUT THE HIGH TEMPERATURE NEVER REACHED 90
DEGREES DURING THE MONTH. THERE HAVE BEEN 10 OTHER YEARS AT SOUTH
BEND WHERE THE HIGH TEMPERATURE DURING JULY DID NOT REACH 90 DEGREES
AND FOUR OF THOSE YEARS HAVE BEEN SINCE 2000. THE LAST OCCURRENCE
WAS IN 2014. WHILE THE MONTH WILL OFFICIALLY GO DOWN AS BELOW
NORMAL, THERE WERE LOCATIONS SURROUNDING THE AIRPORT THAT SEEN MUCH
MORE IN THE WAY OF RAINFALL.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 71.9 DEGREES, 1.1 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 38TH COOLEST JULY ON RECORD.

THERE WAS 3.75 INCHES OF PRECIPITATION, 0.25 BELOW NORMAL. THIS
RANKED AS THE 74TH DRIEST JULY ON RECORD.
