July Heat Not The Hottest

July 30, 2012, 6:20 PM by Scot Mundt

July Heat Not The Hottest

The hot, dry conditions have taken a toll on KELOLAND this month.  From the devastating conditions of the crops in the east to the fires in western South Dakota, the affects of the summer weather have been wide spread.

We've had plenty of 90 and 100 degree heat this month.  In fact, Sioux Falls will finish the month with two-thirds of the days being above 90 degrees.  It has resulted in an average high of 94 degrees, 10 degrees above the climate average.

When you average out the highs and lows, our average daytime temperature is close to 82 degrees.  While it's very warm, it's still three degrees away from the hottest July on record set back in 1936.  That's when the average high was 84.6 degrees.

August should supply some relief in the temperature department; after all we are losing more than two minutes of daylight a day and the average highs start to go down over the next week or so.
