REMARKS...

July was another dry month in Topeka. The total precipitation
measured came in as the fifteenth lowest amount on record for July.
Upper level flow from the north and northwest kept much of the
summertime moisture out of the area and kept temperatures below
normal on many days. After a particularly strong cold front passed
through July 14th, cooler air settled in for the following days and
a record low temperature of 50 degrees was set on July 16th. Very
hot and humid conditions still managed to develop on July 21st and
22nd as well as the 25th and 26th as heat index values peaked around
108 on those days.
