After a wetter than average June, today we take a look at our temperatures for July. Surprisingly, we haven't been too far off the seasonal average, save for a few days (the 75° day on July 12th comes to mind). We aren't quite done with the month of July, but as of Tuesday, our average highs for the month are about 1.5° cooler than the 30 year average.
Looking at past history at the COOP weather station near the Greenville Airport, we are tied for the 15th coldest July with 1959. The highs for the month of August in 1959 came out to 90°, with 97° recorded as the hottest day of the month. So if our trend stays similar to that of 1959, we could be looking at a summer without a 100° day. Air conditioners around eastern Carolina can only hope that our upcoming August follows said pattern.
