A day-long rain July 15 not only helped set a new all-time lowest maximum temperature for the area at 74 degrees but flooded area streets and parks. The 74 broke the previous record of 79 that had stood for 113 years. The normal high for July 15 is 96 degrees. The lowest all-time record max temperature for July is 71 degrees set on July 4, 1924.
