July Has Been Moderate, Not As Wet As You Might Think

July has not been as warm as anticipated and not as wet as we might think.


Ed Shimon at the National Weather Service in Lincoln explains the heat of the west largely evaded us, as we only saw three 90-degree days in central Illinois.



According to Shimon, despite the lack of significant heat this month, we're trending to end the month right about average for temperatures, and rainfall is actually an inch below normal.



Shimon notes the inconsistency in the rain is largely how summer often plays out but he says the trend of July being moderate for temperatures was somewhat unexpected.



Coming up on Monday on Regional Radio, we'll hear more from Shimon in August as we turn the calendar next week.
