The Most Uncomfortable Month of My Life

july 2013 review 4873fbd9bd65571f1 The Most Uncomfortable Month of My Life
July 2013 was the hottest and the month with the most relentless humidity that I have ever had to live through (so far). Here in the Clintonville section of North Haven, we pushed extremes. We had one of the worst and most prolonged heatwaves in history, but a week later we had some of the coolest temps we’ve seen in July. I am talking about a daily high of 61° on the 25th. The graph above shows the high temperatures along with the lows. It also shows the average highs and lows on the dashed lines, and just because it was the most excessive/impressive prolonged “humidity-wave”, I decided to throw the daily high dew point up there as well. Here is the data that I recorded on my Davis Vantage Pro2 weather station (elevation: 125′): 

Highest Temp: 100.0° (July 18th)

Average High: 86.1° (2.5° above avg.)

Lowest Temp: 53.9° (July 31st)

Average Low: 68.1° (6.5° above avg.)

Highest Heat Index: 122°

Highest Dew Point: 81°

Lowest Dew Point: 46°

Highest Humidity: 100%

Lowest Humidity: 43%

Highest Wind Gust: 26 mph

Precipitation: 2.93″

Highest Rain Rate: 6.71″/hour
