Cool in July

It’s official! July 2014 was the third coolest July on record in Rockford. Most of us are probably not surprised by this! After all, we only hit 90 degrees once that month. Climate history in the Forest City began in 1906. July 2014 has tied with July 1992 and July 1996 as the third coolest of all time. There have only been two other Julys cooler than this year.

Here are the statistics! Our high temperature averaged out to 79.2 degrees which was 5.3 degrees cooler than normal. Our low temperature averaged out to 59.1 degrees, or 3.9 degrees cooler than normal. When factoring in highs and lows, July 2014 had a temperature average of 69.1 degrees. The coolest July on record occurred just five years ago in 2009, with an average temperature of 67.0 degrees. To put this into perspective, a normal July has an average temperature of 73.8 degrees.
