Excerpt: ...the entire absence of rain the latter part of that month, with less than one half an inch the first half of uly, the ground near the surface was thoroughly dried out. While the shower of the 28th did much good, a great deal more rain is needed soon to mature growing crops. High temperatures and much sunshine were also important features of the month. Comparing the month's records with the normals for this station the following features are noted: The mean barometer was rather low, while the range was about the usual amount. Changes in pressure were generally slow and of small amount. The total wind movement was about 25 per cent more than the july normal and a comparatively large amount was from the south directions. The mean temperature was about a degree and one-half higher than the normal, and the maximum of 100 degrees, on the rst, has been exceeded but a few times here. The first and last weeks were the warmest parts of the month, while the coolest period was from the 7th to the 22d. The total precipitation was about one-third the normal amount, and more than onehalf the total occurred during a heavy thunder shower on the 28th. Distant thunder or lightning was noted on many more dates than usual. The mean dew point and relative humidity were both considerably lower than the normals for these features. The number of hours of bright sunshine recorded was one of the largest records ever taken at this station: the number of cloudy days noted was correspondingly small.. E.
