THERE IS ROUGHLY A 50 PERCENT CHANCE OF HAVING PRECIPITATION OF A TRACE OR MORE AND THUNDERSTORMS HAVE OCCURRED ON 29 OF THE PAST 131 JULY FOURTHS.  THE MOST PRECIPITATION EVER RECORDED WAS 2.19 INCHES IN 2004.

 

A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM OCCURRED IN 1900, FROM 6:30PM TO 8PM BEING INTENSE.  SEVERAL PLACES WERE STRUCK BY LIGHTNING ALTHOUGH THE DAMAGE WAS MOSTLY MINOR.  THE STORM WAS MOST SEVERE IN THE NORTHERN PART OF THE CITY WHERE THE DROPS WERE AS LARGE AS MARBLES.
