By sharp contrast, July of 2013 contained no one hundreds and no records. We had several hot spells but finished the month very cool.

Just looking at high temperatures, July of 2012 had an average high of 97.6°  In July of 2013, it was only 86.8°.  In climate, a drop in average of over 10 degrees is striking!

The pattern of hot last year lasted into about the first 10 days of August before it finally broke. This year, August will start at or just a smidge below normal.
