SKILLFUL SHOE REPAIRING Pick-up and Delivery Phone 788 or 789 TEMPERATURE IN JULY WAS ABOVE AVERAGE FIGURE Moisture for Month Also Higher Than Normal Precipitation. The July which came to an end Wednesday was four and a half degrees above normal as to temperature and .15 of an inch above normal as to moisture, an analysis of the Globe-Gazette's daily weather figures reveal. Most surprising 1 , however, is the fact that the month just ended was appreciably warmer than the record-breaking June of a year ago. Although the mercury in July did not pass the century mark, as it did on several occasions in 1935, the month's average was more than 3 degrees higher than the June average of 1934, which was 74.3 degrees. July's average temperature was 7.6 degrees, based on a mean max- mum of 88.8 degrees and a mean minimum of 66.4 degrees. The normal average for July over a half century period is 72.1 degrees and the July ol 1934 averaged 76.1 degrees. June of 1935 had an average temperature of 63.9 degrees and a precipitation of 7.68 inches. Fell in June. In reality three-quarters of an nch of the moisture credited to July this year fell on the final day of June and was credited to July because the Globe-Gazette's daily observation are taken at 8 o'clock a. m. This subtracted would leave July about a half inch short of normal. July's first three weeks were abnormally dry, with only .11 of an .nch of moisture recorded. Except for the fact that the ground was saturated from June's plenteous rains, there would have been damage to vegetation. It was in the final week of the month that the copious rains occurred. 23 Days Clear. Twenty-three days were listed as primarily clear, 7 as partly cloudy and 2 as definitely cloudy. The wind was out of the south 21 of the 31 days, a fact closely related to the month's unusual heat. The lunar eclipse on tthe night of July 15 will stand out as the month's most interesting phenomena connected with astronomy or meteorology. Total moisture for the first seven months of 1935 stands at 20.88 nches, compared with a normal to- al of 17.98 inches for this period.
