July Weather

Des Moines, IA (RI) — It’s been a cool and dry July.

That is the determination from state climatologist Harry Hillaker…

In Spencer, the average daily high is 84 to 85 degrees for July. This year, according to KICD Weather records, only 3 times has the daily high hit the average or higher. The highest temperature in July was 90, recorded on the 6th.

After a fairly wet June, rainfall has been sporadic and Hillaker says it’s been relatively dry for the past three to four weeks.

Far northern Iowa is “quite a bit dry” according to Hillaker, who says the statewide average for rainfall is more than an inch below what’s normal for July. The measured rainfall for July at the KICD studios is at 2.56 inches, which is well below the average of 4.11.
