WeatherWatcher: July 16-22 - at least it's not 110 degrees

Wednesday, July 27, 2011


More of the same, colder, wetter, and grayer. Another week goes by without temperatures breaking 80ºF.

The weather station server had a little technical issue, and died on Wednesday July 20, so no data was recorded during that down time. However it wasn't an exceptional day weather wise, so on the large scale it shouldn't make a difference in the averages and there was also no rainfall that day to worry about.

The extremes:
High temperature: 75.4ºF (Monday)
Low temperature: 48.4ºF (Friday)
High humidity: 100%
Low humidity: 25% (Friday)
Barometer high: 29.589 inHg (Tuesday)
Barometer low: 29.323 inHg (Saturday)
Rainiest day: 0.12 inches (Saturday)
Total rainfall: 0.28 inches
Barometer shift: 0.266 inHg

Averages:
Warmest day: 61.9ºF (Saturday)
Coldest day: 57.2ºF (Tuesday)
Average temperature: 59.3ºF
Average humidity: 87%

The week ahead:
We will continue to be influenced by the marine air flows off the pacific. We may have some slight improvements in weather this weekend. However, long range, I think we will see more of the same, possibly more frequent sunny days but I don't see us breaking 80ºF very often for the remainder of the summer. We are among a very small club of under 80ºF daily highs in the lower 48 states. These club members include a couple spots along the Oregon Coast, California Coast, and the northern tip of Maine. I would have to say I'm thankful we are not suffering +100ºF heat indexes this summer like much of the nation has.

Warmest and coldest days are based on average temperature of the entire day, starting at midnight. All other averages are based on the whole week. All weather data unless otherwise noted is sourced from Carl's Shoreline Weather Station.
