July turned out to be much more seasonable than the weather we have had the rest of the year. July should be summer-like and that is what we got. The high temperature for the month was 89.0 degrees (July 28th) while the low was 49.4. (July 3rd) The average temperature for the month was 70.4 degrees, This is right between the average temperatures for 2014 and 2013. If you look back further, the average temperatures for July 2011 and 2012 were closer to 76 degrees, but each of those had 10 days that had high temperatures above 90, while the first day above that for 2015 came in August.
The record rainfall we had in June also came back toward normal levels, with only 2.17 inches of rain during the month. It was spread over 8 days with the most falling on the 9th (0.60 inches.) This also meant that we ran the irrigation for the first time this year. The All-City Championship ended on July 19th and the first full irrigation cycle happened on the 20th. That is definitely the latest that a full cycle has been used since I started with the city. Five days had at least a tenth of an inch of precipitation.
The average windspeed for the month was just 1.3 mph. The highest sustained windspeed was 23 mph, on the 31st.
