Could We Hit A High For The Month?

After reviewing some of the temp data for June & July I have learned.. officially... what many of us presumed all along... it's a cool summer!

Our Friday high temps should climb into the low 80s on Friday. We might even see an isolated shower or thunderstorm. This shouldn't be anything major! As a matter of fact.. most won't see the rain! If highs stay in the low 80s that will simply mean that we are running around normal... and by normal I mean for July 2009. Most of our days have been weel below the average high in the mid 80s.

I will use two reporting stations here... Jackson & London

Jackson's June: 11 Days at 85 or higher.

Jackson's July: The highest temp recorded 83 and that was only 4 times!

London's June: 11 days at 85 or higher.

London's July: 4 days at 85 or higher.

London is traditionally warmer than Jackson... but really the two are very similar this Summer!

If my prediction for the weekend is correct... we should record the highest temperature of the month on Saturday. It will only be the 2nd time this summer that temps even hit 88 at Jackson. London has hit 90 twice back in June.

After Saturday the chances for showers & storms and the much cooler summer temps will be back again. Highs back in the low 80s and on some days... upper 70s!
