...A WARM JULY FOR ST PAUL ALASKA...

JULY 2015 WAS A CONTINUATION OF WARMER TRENDS FOR ST PAUL. A VERTICALLY STACKED LOW 
MEANDERED FROM THE CENTRAL BERING TO THE WESTERN BERING CREATING A SOUTHERLY FLOW 
THAT STARTED JULY OFF WARM AND WET. ANOTHER VERTICALLY STACKED LOW SOUTH OF THE 
ALEUTIANS...ALONG WITH AN AMPLIFIED TROUGH CREATED MORE RAINY CONDITIONS THROUGH 
THE THIRD WEEK OF JULY. HIGH PRESSURE CAME INTO THE CENTRAL AND EASTERN BERING BY 
THE END OF THE MONTH TO REDUCE RAIN CHANCES AND KEEP TEMPERATURES SLIGHTLY ABOVE 
NORMAL.

WITH RESPECT TO TEMPERATURES...THE AVERAGE DAILY MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE WAS THE 
TWELFTH WARMEST...THE AVERAGE DAILY MINIMUM TEMPERATURE WAS THE SECOND WARMEST ON 
RECORD...AND THE AVERAGE MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURE CAME IN TIED FOR THIRD WARMEST ON 
RECORD WITH JULY 1993.  TWO DAILY TEMPERATURE RECORDS WERE TIED…WITH HIGH MINIMUMS 
OF 46 ON THE 3RD AND THE 11TH...BOTH TYING RECORDS SET IN 2005.

JULY 2015 WAS NEAR NORMAL FOR PRECIPITATION. THE MONTHLY PRECIPITATION TOTAL RANKED 
NEITHER IN THE TOP 25 OF WETTEST OR DRIEST ON RECORD...AND NO DAILY PRECIPITATION 
RECORDS WERE SET.
