I've spent more time outdoors lately than I ever did during March/April

Where do you guys find the average high temperatures for a specific month? All I can find is the highest and lowest recorded temps for the month, and the overall average temp.

Try Weather Underground (wunderground.com) and click on calendar view. For some places, weather.gov give stats on places as well, with a bit different information and it's more "official". type your zip code or town to get your forecast, and there should be a link for local climate or past weather. You kinda have to dig.

Well I found the temperatures for each day, but I had to figure up the average myself. Average high was 92.6, which is 3.6 above normal. We had 6 days where the high was below 90, and the coolest of those was 86.

Weird. You should find something like this (dunno if this is the right city, just picking some place in Tennessee )

History : Weather Underground

I found that too, but for my location it was missing the "average" figure in the middle. But I'm just south of Nashville, so the numbers there are probably very close to ours.

Officially:

Average High: 92 F
Average Low: 75 F

Highest High: 104 F
Highest Low: 85 F

Lowest High: 82 F
Lowest Low: 63 F

Highest Dew Point: 76 F
Lowest Dew Point: 39 F

Precipitation: 2.44 inches



Unofficially (small weather station):

Average High: 95 F
Average Low: 76 F

Highest High: 112 F
Highest Low: 85 F

Lowest High: 82 F
Lowest Low: 64 F


What's interesting is that it was Central Park's 2nd warmest July on record by .1 of a degree at 81.3 degrees (high + low), the record was 81.4 degrees (high + low). Our mean temperature was 83 degrees (high + low), I wonder if we broke a record. If the last 2 days of the month weren't cool (low 80's) Central Park probably would have shattered that record.
