Probability of Precipitation at Some Point in the Day in July

The fraction of days in which various types of precipitation are observed. If more than one type of precipitation is reported in a given day, the more severe precipitation is counted. For example, if light rain is observed in the same day as a thunderstorm, that day counts towards the thunderstorm totals. The order of severity is from the top down in this graph, with the most severe at the bottom.

Throughout July, the most common forms of precipitation are moderate rain and light rain.

Moderate rain is the most severe precipitation observed during 64% of those days with precipitation. It is most likely around July 3, when it is observed during 49% of all days.

Light rain is the most severe precipitation observed during 33% of those days with precipitation. It is most likely around July 12, when it is observed during 24% of all days.

Types of Precipitation Throughout July

Relative frequency of various types of precipitation over the course of a typical July.

Snow

Either snow is exceptionally unlikely to fall at this location in July or this station does not reliably report precipitation types.

Humidity

The relative humidity typically ranges from 65% (mildly humid) to 95% (very humid) over the course of a typical July, rarely dropping below 58% (mildly humid) and reaching as high as 100% (very humid).

The air is driest around July 31, at which time the relative humidity drops below 69% (mildly humid) three days out of four; it is most humid around July 6, rising above 93% (very humid) three days out of four.

Relative Humidity in July

The average daily high (blue) and low (brown) relative humidity with percentile bands (inner bands from 25th to 75th percentile, outer bands from 10th to 90th percentile).

Dew Point

Dew point is often a better measure of how comfortable a person will find the weather than relative humidity because it more directly relates to whether perspiration will evaporate from the skin, thereby cooling the body. Lower dew points feel drier and higher dew points feel more humid.

Over the course of a typical July, the dew point typically varies from 68°F (muggy) to 74°F (very muggy) and is rarely below 65°F (mildy humid) or above 76°F (oppressive).

Dew Point in July

The daily average low (blue) and high (red) dew point with percentile bands (inner band from 25th to 75th percentile, outer band from 10th to 90th percentile).

Wind

Wind Directions in July

The fraction of time spent with the wind blowing from the various directions over the entire year. Values do not sum to 100% because the wind direction is undefined when the wind speed is zero.

Fraction of Time Spent with Various Wind Directions in July

The fraction of time spent with the wind blowing from the various directions on a daily basis. Stacked values do not always sum to 100% because the wind direction is undefined when the wind speed is zero.
