Well when you factor in the rounding that goes no in the weather world…i.e. a set of numbers that average out to 88.5° and it’s rounded up to 89°…beginning tomorrow the average low temperatures start a slow decline…and as a result the average overall for KC temperatures follow suit. This decline continues into the 3rd week of January…so as the title of the blog says…it’s all downhill from here. For some that’s a good thing…for others its depressing. It is what it is when it comes to the weather world though…
On that subject, we’ve also technically past the days when the high temperature of 90° or higher are most likely. In data going back to the late 1880s…July 27th and 28th represent the 2 days where highs of 90°+ are most likely (71 times each). July 26 (70 times) and August 3rd (69 times). So on that note…it’s all down hill. Interesting enough though while that may be the case, August, on average, only has 1 less 90° day than July does (14 vs 13). Overall though we average 41 days with highs 90° or above. So far this year we’ve been 90° or above 18 times…average through July is 22 times…so we still have work to do. My feeling though, as I wrote a few weeks ago, is that we won’t get there.

I live in Maryland, cold weather is here. We've had weather so cool due to rain I guess, but jackets have been needed for at least a week.

Summer is only half over... There is still the REST of summer and about half of the fall before it'll start getting cold out.
