The temperature may range from 75 F to 90 F in July. The climate would be hot and most. According to the previous records, the rainy days usually occur in the mid July. However, generally speaking, it won't influence the sightseeing a lot. So don't worry. You can just prepare the summer clothes. Remember to bring the rain gear.
