...WARM JULY IN KING SALMON...

JULY 2014 IN KING SALMON WILL GO DOWN IN THE CLIMATE BOOKS AS ONE
OF THE WARMER JULYS ON RECORD. AN ANOMALOUSLY STRONG RIDGE OF HIGH
PRESSURE CENTERED OVER THE SOUTHWESTERN BERING SEA COUPLED WITH AN
NORTH-SOUTH ORIENTED TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE ANCHORED OVER THE
ARCTIC OCEAN NORTH OF BARROW KEPT THE KING SALMON AREA GENERALLY UNDER
INFLUENCE OF HIGH PRESSURE. THIS ALLOWED FOR WARMER THAN NORMAL
AFTERNOON HIGH TEMPERATURES THROUGHOUT THE MONTH.

OVERALL...PRELIMINARY DATA SHOWS THAT JULY 2014 WILL RANK AS THE
11TH WARMEST JULY ON RECORD WITH RESPECT TO MEAN DAILY TEMPERATURE AND
THE 6TH WARMEST WITH RESPECT TO MEAN DAILY MAXIMUM TEMPERATURE. DAILY
AVERAGE MINIMUM TEMPERATURES HOWEVER WERE NEAR NORMAL FOR THE MONTH.
ONE DAILY TEMPERATURE RECORD WAS SET DURING THE MONTH. A NEW DAILY HIGH
TEMPERATURE OF 80 DEGREES WAS SET ON JULY 30TH...BEATING THE PREVIOUS
HIGH OF 79 DEGREES SET IN 2002.

PRECIPITATION FOR KING SALMON IN JULY 2014 WAS NEAR NORMAL.
