The month of July won't necessarily be remembered for the extreme warmth, but rather the extreme rainfall. Officially Rockford received 7.48 inches of rainfall - 3.48 inches above normal. Of course there are some communities that received well over double digit rainfall totals due to the very heavy rainfall the past couple of weeks.
The average high temperature for the month was 84.1 degrees, roughly about half a degree below normal. The average low temperature was 64 degrees, about one degree above normal.
