July 2017 Summary

A dry July with average temperature 

A pretty average month for temperature, although it was half a degree warmer than average overall, this is still within the average range.  It was also very consistent as there were only 2 individual days that were more than 5 degrees from the average (you can see in the graph that the measured temperature was within the green band most of the time)

The wet first half of the month couldn’t make up for the very dry last half (only 11 mm after the 17th).  The final total for July was 64.0 mm which is a lot lower than the average of 98.6 mm.

With this dry month, the total precipitation for the year of 681.1 mm is now a bit closer to the average of 509.0 mm.  However, it is still the second wettest year so far (still behind 1947).

Summary for July 2017:
Maximum Temperature 29.9°C
Minimum Temperature 10.8°C
Average Daily High Temperature 25.9°C (Long term average 26.0°C)
Average Daily Low Temperature 15.1°C (Long term average 14.0°C)
