Summer of 2013 cooler and wetter than normal

After three consecutive summers that ranked among the hottest on record, the summer of 2013 brought welcome relief in the form of cooler than normal temperatures and abundant rainfall to Kentucky.

After a typical June, both July and August were well below normal with afternoon temperatures that rarely reached 90 degrees. Bowling Green went 38 consecutive days from July 21 to Aug. 27 without having a high temperature of at least 90, which was the second longest summertime sub-90 degrees streak dating to 1894, according to a news release from the meteorology program at Western Kentucky University.
