A colder and drier than normal July here in the northern part of Acushnet.  The July mean of 71.2 deg. was the coldest July since July 2009 saw a mean of 70.7 degrees.  The July low temp

readings of 51 deg. were the lowest in July since 2009 saw 49 deg..  July averages the driest month of any month at my location in the past 38 years.  My July total of 1.89″ holds up to its reputation.

Five of the last six Julys have been drier than normal.  Big savings on electric bills during this July with only 20 cooling degree days and 10 heating degrees days at my location.

I have three web sites, of which two are dedicated to weather: and  I think you’ll be surprised at the activity there is on these web sites:

That’s right, an average of about 18,000 hits a day and close to 600,000 a month!  Peak Visits for the last year was 944 a day or over 28,000 a month (Nov 2016).
