...July 2008 Climate Summary...

July 2008 was more close to normal than any other month we have had this year so far.  The heavier rain this month fell further to the north across northern Missouri.  This area of heavier rain extended down into central and south central Missouri where precipitation amounts were above normal for the month.  (see map below).  Of interest, despite having below normal precipitation totals for the month of July, Springfield actually eclipsed the normal precipitation for the entire year
