Locally, the weather in July was pretty uneventful… though other parts of Iowa were hit with disaster.
Manchester only recorded about an inch and a half of rain this past month – half of that coming the Friday night of the Delaware County Fair on July 13th – that was also our warmest day of the month when we reached 92 degrees. But areas such as Des Moines and Ankeny saw much more rain than that – enough to bring emergency flooding to those towns as the month started off on July 1st.
Severe weather was also minimal in July locally – but parts of central Iowa were hit hard two weeks ago when a tornado outbreak brought destruction to Marshalltown, Pella and Bondurant.
After a stretch of cooler weather, temperatures are expected above normal again – upper 80s to around 90 – as we head into the weekend and all the way through next week.
