    Coldest (overall) July in 125 years...

    Saw this on the news last night... link to a blog about it too: http://johnrlott.blogspot.com/2009/0...t-july-on.html

    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NEW YORK NY
    444 AM EDT FRI JUL 24 2009

    ...UNUSUALLY COOL JULY FOR CENTRAL PARK...

    FOR SOME PERSPECTIVE...HERE ARE THE TOP TEN COOLEST JULYS ON RECORD SINCE 1869 FOR CENTRAL PARK IN NEW YORK CITY:

    COOLEST
    AVG. TEMP. YEAR
    70.7 1888
    71.6 2009 <======
    71.9 1884
    72.1 1914
    72.3 2000/1871
    72.4 1891
    72.6 1895
    72.8 1902/1869
    72.9 1956
    73.1 1890


    DUE TO THE UNUSUALLY COOL CONDITIONS THUS FAR IN JULY...HERE ARE SOME INTERESTING FACTS TO NOTE...

    WITH AN AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURE OF 71.6...CURRENTLY RUNNING 4.7 DEGREES BELOW NORMAL...THIS JULY IS ON TRACK FOR THE 2ND COOLEST ON RECORD. BELOW AVERAGE TEMPERATURES HAVE OCCURRED ON 21 OUT OF 23 DAYS...WITH THE OTHER TWO DAYS BEING NORMAL. THERE HAVE BEEN ZERO ABOVE NORMAL DAYS.

    CENTRAL PARK HAS ONLY REACHED 85 DEGREES ONCE THIS MONTH...ON THE 17TH...AND HAS NOT YET REACHED 90 DEGREES THIS SUMMER. IF THIS CONTINUES THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH...IT WILL ONLY BE THE SECOND TIME SINCE 1869 THAT 90 DEGREES WAS NOT REACHED IN JUNE OR JULY. THE ONLY OTHER TIME THIS OCCURRED WAS 1996.

    Well it was really hot yesterday - I remember thinking this is a normal July day.

    I have actually loved the weather this July but it is a bit odd...any forecasts on what the rest of the summer and fall will be like?

    I heard someone say that we're supposed to get a TON of snow this winter.

    Right now the the AC is cranking in the downstairs living room but if I turn it off the bf will probably get mad. I don't think we need it right now. I just said on FB that I may need my Snuggie!

    It's so humid here right now I'll take July temps anyday over searing heat and humidity.

    Thankfully it appears summer is FINALLY here this week. 85-90 as it should be this time of year. And we can actually use the pool and not the heat!

    me too.

    I've LOVED that it's been cooler, and I blame Big E for jinxing it by starting this thread.

    It may have been the coolest July in the NE..but I think it's been the hottest July in south Florida..

    I was soo glad to get away from here for 10 days. The temps in Ohio/Michigan were wonderful..daytime high 70's & mid 60's at night.

    I am convinced I'll be buying a 'summerplace' there within the next few years...

    I'd say Kansas has been up and down. We've had some ridiculously hot days, and then last week, we had temps in the mid-70's. It was awesome. Starting to warm up again this weekend.

    One of the hottest and driest July in years in Seattle. We're about to start a streak of 5 or more 90 degree plus days.

    We're lucky to have 5 days a year with temps over 90. We've already had a few.

    I read somewhere that "they" anticipate another El Nino this winter. Doesn't that mean unseasonably warm temperatures for us on the east coast?

    That's what I was thinking - I like the warm weather and I was annoyed that I actually had a raincoat out the other day, but it's nasty today.

    Highs this past weekend got up to 113 here in Athens.
    Thankfully there is absolutely no humidity and there are plenty of great beaches here so I'm not complaining.

    What a storm last night! I heard there was a tornado in Flushing. Just took a walk around my area, and there were a few trees down.
