With August now upon us, we can look back at some of the statistics for July. North Dakota taken as a whole finished the month of July, right at the average. In fact, if you calculate all the 84 North Dakota Agricultural Weather Stations temperatures for the month, the overall average comes to two hundreds of a degree below average, so in other words, exactly average. There was a brief period of above average temperatures a few days either side of July 20, but by historical perspectives, it was nowhere near unusual, plus a high percentage of the month the temperatures were right around that long term mean. Too steal from my twitter feed on Sunday, it was an “extremely average” month.
