While extreme heat continues in the U.S., July in the Northland has been near normal

While extreme heat headlines have been common for much of the U.S. this summer, we’ve been able to count ourselves lucky in the Northland.

For the month of July overall, none of the climate reporting stations in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin have observed temperatures considerably far from normal.

The mean average monthly temperature departure from normal as of July 29 by location is:

  • Duluth: -0.5°
  • Ashland: -0.6°
  • Hibbing: 0.0°
  • International Falls: +0.7°
  • Brainerd: +0.9°

Keep in mind, these numbers may change slightly before the month is over. July 29, 30, and 31 still have to be added to the final averages. The 29th is expected to conclude with average temps a hair below normal while the final two days of the month are forecast to be on the warm end.
