Will we break a San Diego weather record today?


July’s average high temperature is 76 degrees and the average low is 66. Since weather records started being kept in 1850, over half of our July’s have never measured any rainfall. Thunderstorms are extremely rare but there happens to be a chance for them in today’s forecast.

On this date in history, July 4, the highest rainfall amount recorded was a trace in 1980. It will be interesting to see if we can beat that record today considering there is a 20% chance of rain.

Finally, the highest wind speed ever recorded for July is 30mph.

Have a wonderful 4th of July!
