Warmest Day of the Year

The National Climatic Data Center released some interesting statistics yesterday. Using our temperature averages from the most recent climate data period, we are able to determine when we can expect our warmest day of the year. The most recent climate data period encompasses 30 years worth of daily weather observations taken between 1981 and 2010. This is 10,958 days of temperature and precipitation data!!!

Heating Up: When We Typically See the Warmest Day of the Year

Based off this data, the warmest high temperature of the year usually occurs between July 6th and 10th for north central Illinois. This includes Rockford, Belvidere, DeKalb, Rochelle, Dixon, Sterling and Rock Falls. For far northern / northwestern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, the warmest high temperature of the year typically occurs between July 11th and 15th. This includes Galena, Savanna, Monroe, Beloit, Janesville and Lake Geneva.

This makes sense for our region! Our statistical average high temperature during this July 6th through 15th timeframe in Rockford is 85 degrees. The hottest temperature to ever occur in Rockford was 112 degrees on July 14, 1936.
