August Notes...

    Is the year tipping towards the cooler side?  More on that after the lack of rain data.


    The big story continues to be the lack of rain. While wetter than July, it was below the dry June. For the usually drier summer months (June, July and August) this year’s 4.45” was the lowest in my records.  Last year held the low spot at 5.34”.  Third lowest is 1999 at 5.79”.  The nineteen season average (not including this year) is 10.23”.

 

   



    Even though they was close to average, July and August is the first time this year to have consecutive months below average. I wonder is this is a turning point for a year which started out with two months well above average.  The year has gone back on forth since then.  Given September starting off with two record low days, it makes me think that a corner was taken.  Of course this year going back into last year has been bipolar so as always it is simply guessing of the data in front of me.

    There were no record high or low temps set in August.  September however started as a different story...but that in next month’s weather posting.
