The final NWS numbers are in. I broke down the July temperatures into two categories: AVERAGE MAX TEMPERATURE and OVERALL AVERAGE TEMPERATURE (MAX and MIN). Where does 2013 fit over the last 30 years? VERY NEAR AVERAGE on both measures. (The prior years--2010,11--are circled in red for reference)
ALMOST HALF OF THE YEARS SINCE 1980 HAD MORE DAYS WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES BELOW 80 DEGREES THAN THIS YEAR
Just for fun, here is the 90 degree scorecard comparing this summer to the last 4 summers.
