July 2018

The temperature in July finished very close to average or slightly below across much of North Dakota into northwestern Minnesota.  The average temperature for last month tended to be one degree above over below average at most of the North Dakota Agricultural Weather Network stations.  With the warm June the region experienced, the first two months of summer are still running at or just a bit above average, but the trend has been for the overall temperatures this summer to be cooler.  July could be considered wet over many parts of southeastern North Dakota and west central Minnesota, but most of North Dakota recorded below average rain last month.
