Are you and your team ready for July weather? We predicted that this summer of 2020 would be warmer than average, and July is shaping up to fall in that same boat. Check out the below forecast to see the July 2020 temperature forecast for your region.
July will bring opportunities for plenty of fireworks, with Canada Day on the 1st and U.S. Independence Day on the 4th. Parents’ Day is on July 26. A hurricane in Texas is something to look out for, but the weather will be favorable for picnics in most other areas.
If you like your summers nice and hot, you’re in luck! This summer’s temperatures will be hotter than normal, with the hottest periods beginning now through early August. Rainfall will be below normal in the north and above normal in the south.
June set the tone for the season and July will bring mostly good weather for outdoor activities with temperatures above normal in nearly all of the northern half of the U.S. In the Heartland and across the southern half of the United States, temperatures will be near or slightly below normal, on average, but there will still be plenty of hot days.
July rainfall will be below normal from the Northeast westward across the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley through the Upper Midwest and Heartland. Rainfall will also be below normal in the High Plains, Desert Southwest, and Pacific Northwest. In the rest of the regions, rainfall will be near or above normal, with well above normal rainfall in the Atlantic Corridor, Southeast, Deep South, Texas, and Oklahoma.
Summer’s steamiest weather will hold off until mid–July in most areas. Summer rainfall will be above normal in the Inter-mountain and Pacific regions, northern Alaska, from most of Texas northward to Canada and eastward to the Atlantic. However, watering cans might be needed in Florida.
June 1 marked the official beginning of Atlantic hurricane season, which runs until November 30. We are predicting tropical storm activity to be near average, with the best chance for a major hurricane strike to occur in mid-September from Florida to North Carolina.
Other threats of hurricanes or tropical storms will occur in the same area in mid to late June, in mid to late July in Florida and mid to late October and in early to mid-October for the Deep South and Southeast northeastward to New England.
