July 2022 climate summary for the Atlanta area

The NWS Climate Summary for Metro Atlanta has now been updated with July figures.

In an article titled What is the difference between climate and weather?the National Ocean Service describes the difference as follows:

The weather is what you see outside on a particular day. So, for example, it can be 75° degrees and sunny or 20° degrees with heavy snow. It’s time.

The climate is the average of this weather. For example, you can expect snow in the northeast in January or heat and humidity in the southeast in July. It’s the climate. The climatic record also includes extreme values ​​such as record temperatures or record amounts of precipitation. If you’ve ever heard your local meteorologist say “today we hit a record high for this day,” she’s talking about weather records.

So when we talk about climate change, we are talking about changes in the long-term averages of daily weather patterns. In most places, the weather can change from minute to minute, hour to hour, day to day, and season to season. Climate, however, is the average of weather patterns over time and space.

The climate report for the Atlanta area for the previous month shows the deviation from the average temperatures for that month. The average temperature for a date is the average over a period of 30 years.
