3 weeks before and after 25 July

Posted: 01 Aug 2017 05:36 AM

High temperatures since the 25th of July have been rather pleasant in the state and generally in the 80s. This stretch to end July interrupted what otherwise was a very hot stretch of weather. The featured chart compares the average high temperature for the three weeks prior to 25 July with the three weeks afterwards. Some quadrant diagnostics are included to show how the population is distributed. It is kind of interesting to see how the averages are not much different for these two periods. The current forecast looks to maintain the mild conditions, so this year's comparison looks to be well into the fourth quadrant.

Good = 5
Bad = 2
