Summer is most at home in July, the month least likely to see frost or snow. Daylight lingers its longest, the evening sunset within a minute of two of its latest of the year. The days only shorten by a half hour, giving the Sun plenty of time to heat the northern hemisphere to its peak during the last week of the month. Sunshine is also at a maximum, but so is rainfall, a combination that works out because summer rains come from the brief and heavy downpours of late afternoon and evening thunderstorms that roam the hillsides in seemingly random fashion. This leaves plenty of room for sunshine, typically accompanied by our north country version of hazy, hot and humid days.
