July temps above-normal; drought worsens

July saw temperatures again hover about 2.5 degrees above average, with temperatures the highest in the northwestern half of the state. The intense heat and a lack of widespread precipitation events in the first half of the month also led to a rapid deterioration of drought conditions in the northern Plains; those conditions hit the northern part of Nebraska. Learn more about how July’s climate conditions affected the state in this month’s edition of the Climate Update from the Nebraska State Climate Office.
