Coolest Day Since June 14…….Tonight Will Be First Night Below 62 Since June 15

July 2nd, 2014 at 4:31 pm by under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog

After a high of 76, we have fallen back to 73 at WLFI as of 4:30 p.m.  That 76 at the station is the coolest high temperature since June 13 when our high was 74.  We will fall to 68 by 7 p.m.

We have not had an overnight low below 62 degrees since June 15 & had not had a high temperature below 80 since June 14 (until today).

Overnight lows of 54-59 are likely with spotty showers & mostly cloudy to cloudy skies & brisk northwest winds.

The morning of July 4th looks cool with lows in the viewing area at 47-53.  It will not reach record levels, however!

The coldest July 4th morning at West Lafayette was 43 in 1963.  The coldest July temperature on record is 42 on July 5 & 6, 1972.

The coolest July 4th high temperature is 69 in 1869 & 2009.

The hottest July 4th was 104 in 1911.

    Have to admit, a bit chilly for me, but loving the break from the mugginess:)

  3. Chad Evans says:

    Tom, the high at the Ag Farm on July 4, 1997 was 76. This is from the State Climate Office. The low was 57.

    Thanks for the help though! That 68 is not correct, however.

    Below is the correct data from State Climate Office. You can use this to update your records Tom! Thanks again!

    Let me know if you need other weather records for your data set! I am more than willing to share! :)
