It has been a very different kind of summer in eastern North Carolina this year. There has certainly been more rain than in recent years and that has made a difference in temperatures. The increased shower activity and associated clouds have kept temperatures almost 3° below normal during the first three weeks of the month. We've seen only five days when temperatures reached or exceeded 90°. I do expect temperatures to return to near normal levels for the remainder of July but the threat of showers each day and a wet ground will likely keep readings from getting close to the century mark. For now the August forecast calls for near normal temperatures and rainfall. I'll keep you updated.
