Preliminary statistics show that a few locations have set new records for the coldest July on record. Burlington had a July average temperature of 70.2 degrees, that broke the record of 71.2 degrees set back in 1950. Cedar Rapids broke their old record for their coolest July on record by a whopping 3.7 degrees with an average July temperature of 66.2°. Dubuque also broke a record with their average July temperature being 65.5°. Just across the river at Moline they had their second coldest July on record, just missing the record by .1 degrees. A few other locations may have also set records as well but they won’t be tabulated for some time. The state of Iowa may also have broken a record for the coldest July ever statewide. This will likely be tabulated sometime late in August by the state climatologist Harry Hillaker.
