8th Coolest July In 135 Years Of Records!

This was the 8th coolest July on record in St. Louis. Those records go all the way back to 1874! Our monthly average temperature was 75.6. The record is 74.9 and I've listed the top ten below,

ST. LOUIS (1874 - 2009)
#1 74.9 1967, 1891
#3 75.0 1924
#4 75.2 1950
#5 75.3 1971
#6 75.4 1905, 1882
#8 75.6 2009
#9,10 75.8 1996, 1962

A few of these years have ties, that's why the rankings jump from #1 to #3 for instance. But 2009 has the 8th coolest July all by itself. The monthly average takes both high and low temperatures into consideration, but here's how those separate numbers break down:

84 = July 2009 Average High
90 = July Normal High

67= July 2009 Average Low
71= July Normal Low

Next week looks like a hotter pattern, highs should reach near 90 and into the low 90s.
