Record warmth this July

July 2020 will be one of the warmest on record

Posted: Jul 30, 2020 6:53 PM

We're not quite done with July yet, but it's going to finish as one of the warmest. As of July 30th, we are running over 5 degrees above average. That may not seem like much, but that average is over the course of 30 days. Our average summertime high is 80. This July, the average high was 86! Our overnight lows have been warmer than average too, with an average low of 63 compared to a typical 58. We'll have to wait for the month to officially end to see where we end up on the all time warmest list.

As for rainfall, it has been quite wet in the local area. We've had more than 7" of rain at Griffiss. Locally, the wettest area was along the Thruway corridor, with lesser amounts of rain north and south. Still, the surplus of rain is significant and has put a major dent our rainfall deficit we saw in June.

The overall weather pattern looks wet heading into August, with widespread rain the forecast on Sunday. A trough will develop and bring widespread rain showers to the region on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. The remnants of Isaias could impact the Northeast too, but the brunt of the impact looks to be in New England at the moment.
