In 2007, the average temperature at Topeka's Billard airport was 56.4 degrees. This makes 2007 the 15th warmest year on record. A major heat wave in late July and August where the temperature did not drop below 70 degrees is a big reason for this ranking.
In 2007, Topeka's Billard recorded 40.76 inches of precipitation. This will go down as the 20th wettest year on record. Excessively wet months in May, June, October, and December can be thanked for the overall surplus of precipitation.
