July 2014 was fairly mild in New York City with a noticeable lack of extreme heat. On average, July typically brings the Big Apple six days with readings of 90°F or higher. This year, however, there were only three. That includes the first 90° day of the season. In the end, the city’s mean temperature for the month was 76.1°F. That is only 0.1°F above normal.

In terms of precipitation, July is usually NYC’s wettest month and this year it lived up to expectations. In fact, it was the city’s wettest July in five years. We received 5.59 inches of rain in Central Park, which is 0.99 inches above average. Most of this total came down in three significant events associated with heavy thunderstorms.
