A cool start to July, but warmer days are not far off

We’re starting the month of July on a cool, crisp, and May-like note with 70s instead of 80s or 90s and little in the way of summer-like humidity. The jet stream for weeks has been oriented more to the northwest than in a west to east “zonal” flow or in a ridge that might bring […]

The first week of August may feature a little more rain for us

While generally unseasonably cool temperatures for the month of July in 2014 made headlines, it was the rainfall that was a bit more off the mark statistically. We were more than four degrees cooler than normal for high temperatures for July in Rochester which is certainly noteworthy, but not record-setting by any means. We measured less than half the normal amount of rainfall for […]

Not at all a typical July so far

With only nine days of 80 degrees or warmer this month in the first full 29 days and lows in the 50s twice as often as 60 or 70 degree lows, we can tell without even looking at statistical data that this July is running quite a bit below normal for temperatures as we approach […]

Weekend Warm Up; Cooler Next Week

The majority of our month of July has been quiet a bit cooler than normal so far with more 70 degree highs than the more seasonable 80s in the first nine days. That cool trend looks to continue through at least the mid-point in the month next week, but between now and then there will be […]

A Break From Heavy Humidity

One of the great things about living in our region is the variety of weather we get throughout the year, especially in the summer.  Not everybody in the United States is lucky enough to get occasional cool spells in the summer or at least a respite from scorching heat and heavy humidity.  Our current dose […]

Our Weather Becomes More Active

 Our phenomenal stretch of dry, sunny weather that started last weekend appears to be showing signs of ending today as we move into the heart of the Independence Day holiday weekend.  A storm system to the west is producing a narrow line of rain showers that will affect many of us for our Friday with […]

A Look Back at a Hot July

We turn the page on the calendar to a new month today, but it looks like we’re facing more of the same heat and humidity to start August that we felt for the vast majority of July.  Yes, it certainly was a hot July for us and the electric bills are evidence of that as […]

The End of a Very Warm Month

We’re just hours away from wrapping up one of the warmest months of July in several decades in our area as only a handful of the days were even close to the type of weather we typically see in this climate.  In other words, with just a few exceptions we’ve been much warmer than average […]
