How hot was it? July is on track to be one of the warmest in 145 years.
75.8 degrees: The average July temperature for Boise. (Last years average temp was 75.6.)
81.3 degrees: Average temperature this July, through Thursday.
The three warmest Julys on record for Boise: 2007 (83.1 degrees), 1874 (82 degrees) and 2006 (81.5 degrees).
Hot nights: The average is figured by averaging the daytime high and the overnight low, so a high average means nights arent very cool.
Triple-digit highs: The mercury has hit 100 nine times this month, including a scorching 108 degrees on July 9 and 12. Thats more than twice as many 100-plus days as in July 2011, but not nearly as brutal as 06 and 07, which recorded, respectively, 13 and 14 days of 100 or hotter. The all-time record is 15 days (2003).
July has been a dry one: Boise has received just .07 inches of precipitation, less than the average for the month, which is .23 inches.
Get ready for more hot nights (and days): The end of July will be sunny, dry and hot, with highs in the upper 90s. And August is on track to be slightly warmer and drier than normal, according to National Weather Service meteorologist George Skari.
