THE HOT AND HUMID WEATHER THAT BEGAN AT THE END OF JUNE CONTINUED
INTO JULY. THE TEMPERATURE PEAKED AT 95 DEGREES ON JULY 1 AND 3,
WITH MANCHESTER RECORDING 7 CONSECUTIVE DAYS AT 90 DEGREES OR HOTTER
FROM JUN 29 THRU JUL 5. PERIODIC COLD FRONTS THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF
THE MONTH BROUGHT SOME COOLER AND DRIER AIR, BUT THE HEAT KEPT
RETURNING. BY THE END OF THE MONTH, THE HEAT AND HUMIDITY WAS
BUILDING AGAIN, WITH THE WARM AND HUMID AIR MASS FREQUENTLY GIVING
WAY TO SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN THE AFTERNOON. MANCHESTER
RECORDED RAINFALL ON 7 CONSECUTIVE DAYS FROM JULY 22 THROUGH 28,
HELPING TO PUT A DENT IN THE DEVELOPING DROUGHT.

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE FOR THE MONTH WAS 76.3 DEGREES WHICH WAS 3.8
DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. THE TEMPERATURE RANGED FROM 95 ON JULY 1 AND 3
TO 55 ON JULY 7. A TOTAL OF 5.57 INCHES OF RAIN FELL WHICH WAS 1.77
INCHES ABOVE NORMAL. THE HEAVIEST RAIN FELL ON JULY 17 WHEN A
THUNDERSTORM DROPPED 3.08 INCHES OF RAIN ON THE CITY.

DUE TO A MALFUNCTION OF THE ASOS TEMPERATURE SENSOR, TEMPERATURE
DATA HAS NOT BEEN INCLUDED FOR JULY 14. THE LOSS OF DATA ON THIS
COOLER THAN NORMAL DAY LIKELY CAUSES THE MONTHLY AVERAGE TEMPERATURE
TO BE RECORDED A BIT HIGHER THAN IF THE DATA WERE AVAILABLE.

HISTORICAL RECORDS AT MANCHESTER ARE NOT PROVIDED DUE TO NUMEROUS
MISSING YEARS WITHIN THE HISTORICAL RECORD. ALTHOUGH THE EARLIEST
DATA AVAILABLE IS IN 1885, THERE ARE SIGNIFICANT GAPS IN THE DATA. A
LOCAL STUDY HAS YET TO BE COMPLETED TO DETERMINE IF MEANINGFUL
INFORMATION ON EXTREME TEMPERATURE, PRECIPITATION, OR SNOWFALL CAN
BE REPORTED.
