  July was a very warm and rather dry month here in Central New York.  No records were set but readings reached 95 degrees on two occasions.  The average monthly temperature was 74 degrees, a little more than 2 degrees warmer than usual.  The Oneida Lake water temperature reached 76 degrees, not far off the record 79 degrees measured on July 28, 2020.  Central New York was not alone in the heat with simultaneous July heat waves covering several parts of the globe.  All-time temperature records were smashed across Europe with Britain recording a maximum temperature of 104.5 degrees, shattering the 2019 record high of 101.6.  The highlights for the weather month here in the Syracuse area were two-fold.  Firstly, on July 13, an isolated but powerful microburst ripped trees from the ground and brought down powerlines in Marcellus.  The winds were estimated at 90 mph. On July 24/25, a line of strong thunderstorms produced 1.4 inches of rain and a 55-mph wind gust here in Syracuse.  Regionally, an EF-2 tornado, with wind speeds of 115 mph, touched down near Letchworth State Park in Wyoming County on Thursday morning July 28.  The tornado was on the ground for 15 minutes.  Fortunately, there were no injuries reported.  Rainfall for the month was 2.93 inches (-0.95") with the lion's share of that rain falling in a short duration with the July 24/25 thunderstorm line.
