July by the numbers in Providence, RI

Many in Southern New England are looking to put June 2013 into the rearview mirror as soon as possible. It was one of the wettest Junes on record in most of Southern New England. July is picking up right where June left off with scattered showers and mild, muggy conditions. Typically, July is the hottest month of the year in Southern New England. The average daily temperature in the Providence area peaks at more than 74° around June 25. Unlike June where the normal high temperature rises from 73° on June 1 to 81° on June 30, the normal high temperature does not vary much during the month of July. It is 82° on July 1 and 83° on July 31. The same holds true for the low temperature as the dog days of summer set in.

July is typically the driest month of the year. The normal monthly precipitation is 3.29″. Of course, localized thunderstorms can produce very heavy rain, but widespread rainstorms are not something typically associated with July.
