Temperatures in July 2013 will be much cooler than last year across the North Central United States, and retailers are going to feel the impact.

That's part of the forecast from Bethlehem, Pa.-based Weather Trends International.

While temperatures frequently crested the 100-degree mark last year, temperatures will be even warmer than last year in the South and along the West Coast.

In the East Coast, residents can expect weather that's warmer than normal, but cooler than a year ago, according to the Weather Trends forecast.
