hurricane season storm total downgraded again
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – According to the National Weather Service, and to no one’s surprise, July is the warmest month of the year in Florida.
July 2018 did not disappoint as temperatures averaged 86 degrees for a daily average and 91 degrees during the heat of the day.
Rainfall amounts were slightly above average as 6.38 inches of precipitation fell at Orlando-Melbourne International Airport. The average rainfall amounts in July for Melbourne is 5.37 inches.
The best way to describe the start of the 2018 hurricane season is to say the Pacific is hot while the Atlantic is not.
So far this hurricane season, strong wind shear, dry air in the Caribbean and cooler-than-average water temperatures are expected to produce fewer hurricanes than average in the Atlantic, according to an updated outlook released last Thursday by Colorado State University.
However, it is important to remember that it only takes one hurricane to make the season a disaster.
As for the next 10 days in Brevard County, it’ll be more of the same hot and humid Florida summer weather with afternoon storms.
