Portland, Oregon never even hit 90 degrees in July 2012. The hottest day was 88 degrees on July 8, 2012.
As you see in my graphic here, 61% of the highs were below average in Portland this month. And for the second July in a row, Portland did not hit 90 degrees. Two Julys in a row without hitting 90? That’s never happened before at the Portland Airport where records have been kept since 1941.
Reminder: Last year Portland did not hit 90 until August 20th. This year we’re going to do it sooner–on August 4th.
