We all know how brutal the summers can be in the state of Florida, especially when we're standing outside in the heat and humidity watching Jacksonville Jaguars practices. The Weather Channel actually ranked the 10 worst weather NFL training camps with the Houston Texans having the worst. The Jaguars came in ranked in the Top 5, with all three Florida NFL teams coming in the Top 5.

Here's some of the averages for the months of July and August, when the Jaguars are practicing for the preseason:

July/August average high: 91.5 degrees / 90.5 degrees
July/August % of hours above 85 degrees: 29% / 27%
July/August average dew point: 72 degrees / 73 degrees
July/August % of hours with overcast sky: 15% / 16%

Hit the jump to see what the Weather Channel had to say.

EverBank Field, on the St. Johns River, has an area dominated by forest (51 percent) and water (14 percent) within 25 miles of downtown, which contributes to its high humidity. The generally easterly flow during camp generates a daily 70 percent chance of rain on average during camp.

Jacksonville's August precipitation averages a hefty 6.80 inches. September's totals jump up to 8.19 inches, which may provide for a sloppy game when either the Houston Texans come to town on Sept. 16 or when the Bengals pay a visit on the 30th.

July and August's daily highs are consistently in the low 90s. The odds of high temperature above 96 or below 84 degrees on any given day are 1-in-10. Low temperatures rarely drop below 70 in July and August because of high dew points. Northerly and easterly breezes off the Atlantic Ocean, 10 miles to the east, may provide some afternoon relief.
