Newfoundland’s capital had one of hottest months on record in July

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. — Newfoundland’s capital sweltered through one of the hottest months on the record books in July.

Meteorologist Brian Walsh said Friday the month will go down in history as having the warmest average temperatures in St. John’s since weather records were kept — beating the 1874 record by 1.4 degrees.

Weather records say there were 19 days with temperatures above 25 degrees.

Walsh, the forecaster for Provincial Airlines, says since weather has been recorded there’s been only two years with more days above the mid-20 temperature, 1967 and 2003.

The last two days mark the first back-to-back days with 29-degree temperatures since September 10 and 11, 2001.

Walsh is forecasting that August will bring normal or above normal temperatures.
