Finishing at 13.24 inches, a July record, last month's rain all but drowned the official gauge at Philadelphia International Airport.
But that record might merit an asterisk since it was so localized.
One symptom evident Thursday: The National Weather Service has posted flash-flood watches until midnight, but no widespread major flooding is expected, despite additional downpours.
Arguably more impressive than the July rain was the overnight warming during the month.
The average daily low at the airport came in at 73.1, No. 2 on the all-time list for lows in July, behind 1994's 73.4.
July also set a record for consecutive days in which the temperature failed to drop below 70. The warmth continues a trend: The last four Julys all rank in the top 5 for high minimum temperatures in records dating to 1874.
