I know that among the largest cities in the United States San Francisco and Seattle are the coldest ones in July.
I also know that there are so many little, remote towns and villages in Colorado rockies, the far north of Washington and Maine where nightime temperatures can be chilly even in July, but I would like to pintpoint the coldest small cities with a fairly number of inhabitants where average lows can be quite chilly.

Given how big the United States is, I guess there are many small cities between 20,000 and 100,000 inhabitants that experience such cool nights in mid-summer.

What are your thoughts?

Any town along the Washington state coast (if just counting the lower 48).

For places over 20000, the coldest one I could find was the Breckenridge Home Rule area of Summit County Colorado (pop some 27000). It has an average July night time temperature of 37.3 degrees.
For any place at any size in the US, Bondurant, WY at 35.6, Bodie, CA at 35.1 and Barrow Alaska at 34.1 are pretty tough to beat.

High in the Rockies would be the best place to look I'd imagine. There are no high towns in Alaska but Anchorage, close to 300,000 population, has a lower daily mean temperature in July than SF or Seattle.

I don't think there is any city on the coast with more than 20k population.

I'm really shocked to see that notoriously hot Sacramento has July nighttime lows lower than where I am in Milwaukee.. a mostly cold, northerly city right next to a great lake. I checked, and that stat for Sac, is correct.

It's because Sacramento is in a unique location where the Delta Breeze from San Pablo Bay makes it in to them almost every night, go south OR north of Sacramento in the Valley and summer nights are warmer

49 for Anchorage. Can't imagine that isn't overnight. https://wrcc.dri.edu/cgi-bin/cliMAIN.pl?ak0285
