Kelowna averages 37.2 millimeters in July. So far this month there has only been 19.8 millimeters. So a long way to go just to hit the average let alone record wet.

HISTORICAL MONTHLY AVERAGES FOR JULY

The information presented below gives detailed historical monthly average weather conditions along with exceptional weather occurrences. To maintain relevance to current weather trends the displayed information has been calculated using data collected over the past two decades. The climate profile is taken from closest available data source to Kelowna.

Temperature
Throughout the month of July daytime temperatures will generally reach highs of around 29°C that's about 85°F. At night the average minimum temperature drops down to around 10°C, that's 51°F.

In recent times the highest recorded temperature in July has been 39°C that's 102°F, with the lowest recorded temperature 3°C, about 37°F.

Relative Humidity
The average daily relative humidity for July is around 50%.

Heat Index
The Heat Index is a measure of how hot it feels when relative humidity is added to actual air temperature. From this a comfort level is calculated providing categories on how heat conditions might adversely affect someone.

Comfort Levels: Given average maximum temperatures and humidity levels caution is advised. Fatigue is possible with prolonged exposure and/or physical activity for those in high risk groups of possible heat disorders (see heat index for more information).

Precipitation
The average monthly amount of precipitation has been recorded at around 27 mm, that's 1 inches. Throughout the month you can expect to see rain or drizzle falling on 13 days of the month.

Estimated Hours of Sunshine per Day
We calculate sunshine hours per day using our past forecast data. For July expect the sun to shine for an average of 12 hours per day. This represents the average number of hours in the daytime that the sun is visible and not obscured by cloud e.g. the average number of hours the sun is actually out and shining. Note we calculate hours of sunshine per day using our past forecast data, not observation data, thus it is an estimate and not actual.

Nice weather: no smoke so it's great. It's cloudy and temperate so its great to work outside. Cooler so I haven't seen the yellow jackets that seemed to be around a month or so ago.

Cooler so the lake is cooler. I'm admittedly a " girly-man" when it comes to swimming in cold water so no lake swimming yet and its July 15th. Last year it was July 3-4th I believe. So the pool it is for now.

Great stuff. In the past I was in the lake in June but wearing a wet suit. Swimming 4 ks in that temp without a wetsuit was a stretch for me.

Funny, it was raining at my house (elevation 530m), but I walked down the hill to 500m and not a drop!

I think I might possibly be weather-sensitive. :135:

I was fine yesterday morning, around about 1 or 2pm I started to feel really fatigued. I find I get that way before a change in weather happens. Went home, fell asleep for an hour, woke up and did stuff then went to bed at 9. Woke up this morning feeling refreshed, and not at all surprised to smell the rain.
