July is usually the hottest month of the year month in Minnesota, with the average high temperatures in the range of 76°F (24.4°C) to 85°F (29.4°C). Wild River State Park in the northeast sees a rise in tourist footfalls with the temperatures in the bright range of 57°F (13.9°C) to 83°F (28.3°C). Temperatures rarely touch 95°F (35°C) in any part of the state during the peak of summer. Warm air from the Gulf of Mexico reaches the southern regions, but Minnesota rarely experiences a heatwave with extreme temperatures. Even though the sunlight lasts for a daily 8 hours, the conditions are warm in the day and cool in the night to attract summer vacationers. The areas along Lake Superior Shore register cooler temperatures than the rest of the state. Camping is popular with many public camping grounds in the vast amount of wilderness. Light clothing is suitable during the day, but a bout of rain may occur suddenly. July is worth a visit to Minnesota when the storms are at bay.
