Sunday’s weather in Baker County, with steady rain falling for more than six straight hours, was not typical for any month.

For July, though, it was pretty close to unprecedented.

A Pacific storm system that would not have surprised meteorologists had it arrived in March or November brought copious rain and, more notably, record-setting cool temperatures.

Sunday’s high temperature at the Baker City Airport was 58 degrees.

That’s the lowest high temperature ever recorded for July 10 at the airport, where daily temperature records date to 1943.

The previous record low for the day is 62, set in 1974.

The average high temperature for July 10 is 83 degrees.
