We were pretty close to setting a record for the coolest July ever for much of the month, but now it's official. As of today, many locations in central Illinois had an average temperature of 70° or lower. Many locations are suppose to have an average July temp in the mid 70s (factoring in Highs and Lows together). Below is a list of the record setters.

Champaign/Urbana  69.8    Coolest Ever
Decatur 70.1  Coolest Ever

Effingham 71.4  Coolest Ever
Jacksonville 69.9  2nd Coolest Ever
Lincoln  68.7  Coolest Ever
Normal  69.2  2nd Coolest Ever
Springfield  71.6 3rd Coolest Ever
