...A NOTABLE BREAK IN PRECIPITATION; BOUTS OF HEAT...

THIS JULY WILL BE REMEMBERED FOR A STRETCH OF HOT AND HUMID DAYS MID
MONTH, BUT OVERALL, IT WAS A RATHER TYPICAL JULY. THERE WERE SIX
DAYS WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S, AND FOUR OF THESE OCCURRED
DURING THE VERY WARM PERIOD FROM JULY 13TH TO THE 20TH. DURING THIS
STRETCH, LOW TEMPERATURES DID NOT FALL BELOW 70 DEGREES FOR SEVEN
CONSECUTIVE DAYS. THIS WAS THE 6TH LONGEST JULY STREAK OF
CONSECUTIVE DAYS WITH LOWS OF 70 DEGREES OR WARMER. THE LONGEST WAS
TEN DAYS IN A ROW ENDING ON JULY 23RD 1983. DESPITE THIS VERY WARM
PERIOD, THERE WERE PLENTY OF COMFORTABLE DAYS DURING THE MONTH.
THERE WERE 11 DAYS WITH LOW TEMPERATURES IN THE 50S AND TEN DAYS
WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES LESS THAN 85 DEGREES.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE FOR JULY 2019 WAS 74.9, 1.9 DEGREES
ABOVE NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 28TH WARMEST JULY ON RECORD. THE
HOTTEST TEMPERATURE WAS 93 DEGREES ON THE 20TH AND THE COOLEST
TEMPERATURE WAS 53 DEGREES ON THE 23RD AND 31ST.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 3.03 INCHES, 0.97 INCHES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 61ST DRIEST JULY ON RECORD. THIS IS ONLY
THE SECOND TIME IN 2019 THAT SOUTH BEND HAS SEEN BELOW NORMAL
PRECIPITATION FOR A MONTH. THE LAST TIME WAS IN JANUARY 2019.

A NEW RECORD WARM MINIMUM TEMPERATURE OF 77 DEGREES WAS SET ON THE
19TH. THIS BROKE THE PREVIOUS RECORD OF 76 DEGREES IN 2013.
