INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The National Weather Service says Indianapolis had its coolest July on record and other parts of Indiana just missed setting records as well.

The weather service recorded an average temperature for the month in Indianapolis of 70.1 — breaking the previous July record from 1947 by a half degree and setting a new mark back to when record keeping started in 1871.

Only two years ago, the Indianapolis area experienced its hottest July on record with an average temperature of 84 degrees.

Last month saw South Bend record an average temperature of 68.7 degrees and Fort Wayne at 69 degrees. That was the third-coolest July for South Bend and the second coolest for Fort Wayne.
