... July 2014 climatological summary for northeastern and central
Nevada...

As with many months before it... July 2014 was dominated by a
strong ridge of high pressure. This ridge was so strong that it
brought record or near record warmth across the entire region. It
also was accompanied by multiple strong monsoon moisture surges
which resulted in above normal precipitation in parts of the
area... though some areas missed out on the typically hit-and-miss
convective precipitation and ended up below normal.

The tables below summarize the weather at four of our Airport
climate sites during the month. Temperatures are in degrees
fahrenheit... while precipitation is in inches.
