    The average temperature for July will be above normal.  Precipitation will be near normal for the month. 

    The weather pattern in July will feature the typical hot humid weather associated with the middle of summer.  A large high pressure system centered over the Atlantic Ocean will circulate warm humid air over Ohio during much of the month.  Cold fronts will move south from Canada occasionally and they will provide brief breaks from the heat and humidity.  Since the wind will blow predominantly from the south, the average temperature will end up being above average for July.  Summertime thunderstorms and the occasional cold fronts will combine to produce near average rainfall in many parts of the state.
