...NEAR NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR
JULY...

JULY EXPERIENCED A VARIETY OF WEATHER RANGING FROM HOT, HUMID AND
DRY TO COOL AND WET AT TIMES. WHILE PRECIPITATION AT FORT WAYNE
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT WAS BELOW NORMAL FOR THE MONTH, OTHER PARTS OF
THE REGION EXPERIENCED ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL, PRIMARILY FROM AN
UNUSUALLY STRONG AND SLOW MOVING LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT BROUGHT
BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND SEVERAL DAYS OF RAINFALL DURING THE
LATTER PORTION OF THE MONTH.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 74.1, JUST 0.5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 45TH WARMEST JULY ON RECORD, TIED WITH
1954 AND 1973. THERE WERE 6 DAYS WITH A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 90
DEGREES OR WARMER, ALL OCCURRING DURING THE FIRST 10 DAYS OF THE
MONTH. THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE WAS 93 ON THE 4TH. THE AVERAGE
TEMPERATURE FROM JULY 16TH TO THE 31ST WAS JUST 71.2 DEGREES. THIS
WAS THE 21ST COOLEST LATTER HALF OF JULY ON RECORD.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 3.05 INCHES, 1.19 INCHES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 51ST DRIEST JULY ON RECORD. MEASUREABLE
PRECIPITATION FELL ON 9 DAYS AND NEARLY HALF OF THE TOTAL MONTHLY
PRECIPITATION FELL ON JUST 2 DAYS FROM THE 20TH TO 21ST.
