Cincinnati 5NW (Ronald Rothhaas Jr) - July will be remembered as remarkably cool and wet in Cincinnati.  High temperatures equalled or exceeded normal on only 4 days.  Temperatures for the month averaged almost 2F below normal with rainfall 2.40 inches above normal.  Deluges occurred on the 11th with 1.12 inches, the 22nd with 1.85 inches, and at the end of the month on the 31st with 2.18 inches.  The remarkable event of the month was a cold wave on the 25th, 26th, and 27th.  Daily record low maximums were recorded on each of these 3 days of 69F, 65F, and 66F respectively.  The 65F was the coldest ever in the month of July and would have been normal for April 15 or October 17!  The 66F on the 27th was 8F below the old record!  Temperatures warmed to 76F on the 28th but this was only 2F above that date's record low high.  On the 27th the temperature had only risen to 63F by 4PM when the sun finally broke through.

Cleves 3NW (James F. Davis)- July ended up 2F below normal

Kent 2W (Eric Wertz) -  July was characterized by cooler than normal temperatures with normal precipitation.  Measurable precipitation occurred on 15 days with the heaviest precipitation noted on the 31st with 1.04".  This was in association with heavy thunderstorms in advance of a cold front.  Even though thunderstorms were observed on 7 days, high wind gusts for the month were below average.  The highest wind gust was only 24 mph on the 4th and only 13% of all days this month saw wind gusts of at least 20 mph.  Morning fog occurred on the 19th and 21st.  There was only 1 watch issued this month.  The Lake Erie water temperature briefly touched 73 before falling back to 71 on 7/31. 

Kidron 1N (Ronald Hahn) -  July was just slightly (almost a degree) below normal in temperature and close to 0.50" below normal for rain.  New minimum high temperature records were set on the 17th (73) and 25th (76).

Munroe Falls 1SW (Larry Huff)-   Second coolest July since records began in 1992 with a mean temperature of 69.6 degrees.  Coolest was July 2000 with 67.7 degrees.  This July was  the 6th driest July since 1992 with a total precipitation of 3.06 inches.

Newcomerstown 1S (Don Keating)

Ottawa 4E (Phil & Bonnie Higley) Ended up 1.7F below normal for the month, for our Ave. Temp. & 1.05" above for the month for our rainfall.  So a cool & wet month.

Perrysville 4W (Katie Gerwig) -  July was slightly cooler and drier than normal.  Cloud cover was heavier than normal.  Some rain fell on 10 days with 3 thunderstorm days.

Ravenna 1E (Rich Rabatin) - J

Ravenna 1SE (Gary Locke)  July was a relatively dry month with only 5 thunderstorm days and no severe weather to report.

Sabina (Ron Rockhold) - July went from too dry to the wettest July in the last ten years. 8.19"

Springfield (Dick Groeber) Temperatures averaged near the station normals. There were only 2 90 degree temperature dates. The temperatures gradually cooled through the month to near or at or below record station levels by months end.  Rainfall was mostly light with scattered thunderstorm dates. There were only 2 dates with over 1/2 inch rainfall. Overall total was about half the station normal for the month. 

Tiltonsville (Carl Phillips Jr) - 07/26/2004 08:00am to 09:00am = 0.59 inches of Rain in 1 hour with 0.05 inches of Rain in 1 minute at 08:40am with a total Rainfall of 2.27 inches in a 24 hour period.

Thompson 5SW (Vance Lunn)- July 2004 was overall a very pleasant month with no hot weather.  Periods of seasonalbly warm temperatures with highs in the upper 70's to low 80's alternated with periods of cool weather with supressed highs in the upper 60's to low 70's.  Lows were in the 50's and 60's throughout the month.  Other weather that occured were 6 days with thunder and 6 with fog.

Wooster 7N (Jack Sisler) The one thing that stood out for the month of July was the lack of really hot weather. Mean temperatures were average even with no 90-degree high temperatures. The warmest temperatures occurred the first half of the month. I had a record low for the morning of the 24th of 48 degrees breaking the old record of 49 degrees set in 2000. Precipitation was 1.50 inches below normal even with 0.75 inches on the last day of the month.

Subject: No Hot Weather?




Being the middle of Summer there has been a lack of really hot

weather; temperatures above 90 degrees. So far there hasn't been an

establishment of a strong ridge anchored off the east coast/western

Atlantic (a.k.a. Bermuda High). This has allowed a progression of

cold fronts to move thru the area and continue off the east coast.

The last 90-degree day I had was on September 9, 2002 with a

temperature of 91. I realize there is still another two months for

this to happen but I don't recall there ever being two years in a

row without a 90-degree temperature.


Other thoughts or observations?

Hello Jack and Group;

What I know is this... and that is the winds aloft and jet stream seem to be in a pattern that was established

last winter (03-04) as well as last summer. It's not the best if you're a hot weather fan. And as a result of the

troff being over this part of the continent again, my precipitation total for 2004 has already gone past the 29"


On June 9'th I had a high of 90 degrees. That has been the only reading of 90 or higher so far this summer. In

2003 there were three days with highs of 90 or higher. August 21 of 2003 had a high of 91 and that was the

last 90+ reading here.

I personally am not optomistic about this longterm jet stream pattern changing for a longterm period

anytime soon. I fear that if it doesn't break before November, we're in for yet another crummy winter season

(04-05) in respects to cold weather and snowier than normal precipitation.

Columbus has had 3 90 degree days so far, and just barely reached 90 all 3

days. It doesn't look good for heat anytime soon, either. I have noticed

that SSTA's in the Gulf of Alaska and in the North Atlantic are warm. This

definitely helps the East stay cooler during the summer, but normally has

bigger implications for wintertime (if it holds on that long). Three cold

winters in a row, anyone?

Subject: Re: No Hot Weather?


Hi Jack and Group:


I don't think I've ever recalled two summers in a row in which the

temperature has not reached 90 degrees. Granted when you look at how

July 2004 has fared to date, you can't say we are having a cool

summer month. The monthly mean temperature to date at Lodi 2S has

been 71.6 degrees which is just about on target (actually maybe a bit

above normal) and we've achieved this despite the fact that the

highest temperature seen so far this month has been 85 degrees!


The Bermuda High was in full force during May and early June and we

were really feeling the effects from it during that period. It has

contracted a bit and has moved to its more climatologically-favored

position over the past three weeks or so. The main reason for the

lack of heat is anticyclonic blocking over western Canada/Alaska and

periodic blocking over Greenland and northeast Canada. When you have

blocking in these positions it forces the jet stream to a more

southerly latitude over eastern North America and often allows a TROF

to dig over the eastern part of the U.S. and Canada under the

northeastern Canada/Greenland block.


The question is when will the pattern break for good? I agree with

Don, not anytime soon. However, the medium range models are showing

a lack of anticyclonic blocking over northeast Canada and Greenland

during the early and middle portion of next week. This should allow

the TROF forecast to settle over the eastern U.S. late this week to

kick out this weekend and early next week and allow a developing

Soronan heat ridge currently over the western U.S. to gradually

expand to the east towards the Mississippi and Ohio Valleys. This

should turn up the heat a bit for us towards the middle and later

portion of next week (but this may only be a "transitionary" pattern

change and may not last long).


Time will tell :).

For the past several months I've been looking at various services

that provide weather information for my cell phone with enough info

at a decent price. I chose AccuWeather because it's cheaper than

others (including The Weather Channel) with pretty much the same

information. You do need to have a vision (picture) cell phone. I

have one that I use with Sprint. The service from AccuWeather costs

$ 3.00 for 30 days and, at the moment, there is no long-term

subscription you're stuck with if you don't like it after 30 days.

The only additional cost is the minutes you use on your regular

phone plan. You can get text weather for various areas, regional and

national radar and satellite images, current weather, as well as

hurricane information. Go to then click

on Wireless Services on the left of the page.


The only disadvantage I found with it is your're looking at a fairly

small picture compared to a palmtop or pocket pc. However, I can

still make out what I'm looking at ok. I thought this to be a nice

alternative when the power goes out or in the car while traveling or

article on Dick with full color photos and a very good article. Dick



twice daily over WEEC. His broadcasts began 25 years ago when I was on

the radio staff and asked if he would consider providing such a service.

He is also a NWS cooperative observer.

I have received a total of 1.18" of rainfall since midnight thus far. It looks like it is possible additional

measurable rainfall will fall in my bucket before midnight. With this said, let us compare total precipitation

totals for 2003 and 2004 through July 26'th.

2003 I had measured 20.68"

2004 I have measured 31.78"

That's a huge 11.10" additional from this point in time last year.

If we were to receive no additional rainfall for July 2004 (Yea, right!) and average out the first seven months

of the year, then take the average precip total per month, multiply it for the remaining five months of 2004,

we would end up with 54.48" of precipitation for the year, which would easily establish a new annual

precipitation record for my station. But we all know how 'averages' work out around Ohio!!

or two days in the 90's over the next couple of weeks. The first

opportunity comes as early as this Friday with other opportunities

next week.


It would be nice to feel at least a little summer around here this

But what is normal?? I feel that we will have a short live summer & go

right into fall before the end of Aug. & we might even see our first

snowfall by the middle of Sept. or no later then the end of Oct. Then this

winter we just might see a normal winter & then a LONG winter..........

Just rememember one thing..Which is this...........The poles are changing

from North to South & South to North, I feel that this has a changed on our

weather here. Onces this is done, we will see different changes in our

weather here as a whole..An also the moon is pulling away from the earth.

With all of this going on, I feel we just might see a MAJOR changed in our

haven't really looked at any models but I think they're already

coming down with the maximum temperature forecasts for late in the

week than they had previously. My highest temperature so far for the

year was an 87 on August 3rd.

I noticed the same thing you did on the NWS zone forecasts for the

weekend, but I'm still hopeful for high temperatures near 90 on

Friday and at least mid 80's over the weekend (depends on how far

south that next cool front gets). Most of the medium-range models

are hinting at seasonably warm to occasionally hot weather in the 6

to 10 day period. Keep your fingers crossed!

If trends continue as they have been since last winter, you may be

right, Phil. We've had 2-3 week periods of cooler than normal

weather alternating with 2-3 weeks of basically normal temps. This

warmer spell in the forcast may be the next period of more normal

weather. Check out this article:


He has correlated various happennings of the Sun very closely with

past climate patterns and has developed a way to forcast these trends

into the future. He says that we could be into Little Ice Age type

weather by 2030. Brrrr!!


The magnetic pole reversals have also been associated with climate

change, although I haven't studied that as much.


Noteworthy is that the coolness here has be in the daytime. Nights

have been pleasantly cool, but not unusually cold. My low here for

July so far is 50.

Interesting to see such a wide contrast in precipitation amounts

around the state. I've received .76" in the last 24 hours and even

with that amount I'm going to be about 1.5" below normal for the

month of July.
