August outlook

July 31, 2014

  After a soggy June, many people were hoping for some drier weather in July. Their wishes were granted. Our July rainfall total at MSP airport was only 2.27 inches, which is 1.77 inches below normal. July was only one-fifth as wet as June! That’s an impressive change of pace. The average monthly temperature for July was 2.3 degrees below normal in the Twin Cities. Our warmest temperature was 92 degrees, on July 21st, and our coldest reading was 54 degrees on July 2nd and July 15th.

  Looking ahead, the August temperature outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service shows a tendency for below normal temperatures over Minnesota and Wisconsin:

  The outlook doesn’t mean that every day is expected to be cooler than normal…it is the average temp for the entire month that shows a cool tendency. A little bit cool can be okay in August…our average high in the Twin Cities drops slowly from 83 degrees on August 1st to 78 degrees on August 31st.
