July is the hottest month all over Northern Hemisphere. Exceptions being the Monsoon lands and the west coast of US especially the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles in California. In the southern Hemisphere, it is the coldest month. Let us discuss Animal-Pros in a little more detail.
Throughout the Northern Hemisphere, July records the highest temperatures of whole year. In the temperature belt temperatures up to 95 F must be expected. Even as far North as 60 N, temperatures of over 80 F are the norm. The nigh time lows are around 75 F in the tropical belt, 65 in temperate zone and 55 F in the arctic zone.
The monsoon lands are a major exception to this general rule, however. Here June is the hottest Month, particularly in South Asia where India and Pakistan are situated. The cool monsoon winds hit most parts of the Indian sub-continent by the end of June and prevent additional rising of the temperatures. Because of this July is much cooler than if there were no monsoon.
The second exception is that the Californian coast, here due the cool pacific present, the temperatures rise very slowly and reach their peak by the month of August.
Conditions in Southern Hemisphere
As the seasons are reverse in southern hemisphere, so the regions located here are passing through their mid-winter. The significant difference being that the winter is significantly milder than the winter of the Northern Hemisphere since this hemisphere has no vast continents like Asia and no channel is located very far off from the oceans. Thus the continental effect is not so conspicuous and the temperatures are quite mild. As an example, if we have a closer look at a number of the famous cities located in Southern Hemisphere, we find that the winter is not as severe than that of the Northern Hemisphere. Sydney, in Australia records a high of 60 F in July (its coldest month) and a low of 40 F; which is quite equable. At Auckland, in New Zealand, which is located further south, the day time temperature rarely falls below 50 F and the nights are approximately 35 F.
In short, July is the hottest month in the Northern Hemisphere and the coldest in the Southern Hemisphere. The temperatures recorded at a specific station is highly dependent on its distance from the closest water body is it a sea or an ocean.
