July goes on record as cool

By Leanne Fuller lfuller@paducahsun.com

Paducah experienced many cooler-than-usual days this July, which will likely go down among the coolest Julys on record, according to the National Weather Service.

National Weather Service meteorological technician Dave Purdy said the average high for the month as of July 30 was 86.2 degrees, below the normal average July high of 89.3. The average low was 64, cooler than the normal average low of 68.5.

Without Thursday's temperatures included, the average temperature for July was 75.1, nearly four degrees lower than Paducah's normal average of 78.9.

"That will probably go down because the last day of the month is cooler than average," Purdy estimated. "So we're either in the third or fourth coolest July on average."

July also brought less rain than usual this year with 2.04 inches, which Purdy noted is less than half the normal amount of 4.44 inches.

Moving into August, he said temperatures are expected to rise through Monday with a high of 82 and a low of 61 today, a high of 83 and a low of 62 Saturday, a high of 84 and a low of 63 Sunday, and a high of 87 and lows in the upper 60s Monday.

Purdy added that there's a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight and Saturday.
