Onward to cooler temperatures

The average high on August 1 and August 31 is 92°. You can't get much more stagnant than that. However, as we journey into September, we'll find our average high temperature going from 92°, to 85° by the end of the month! Highs in the 80's! It's amazing! Average lows will be in the mid 60's by the end of the month.

Granted, we've been fairly cool this summer (all year really). The highest temperature we've experienced all year is only 96°, and we've hit that mark twice during the "hottest weekend of the year" on the 23rd and 24th.

As far as precipitation goes, we normally see about 5.68 inches in August. This past August, we saw 5.64. This isn't a huge difference. In September, we usually see a little less; around 4.54 inches. Severe weather also becomes more common in September as cold fronts become more numerous and the atmosphere is changing.

Not a bad year thus far, but will cooler temperatures overall segway into another cool winter with chances of snow? Only time will tell.
