August ended with some warmer temps and overall the month had an average temperature of 73.1*. That is almost a full degree above-average and goes down as the 21st warmest August on record. We only had one day in August in the 90s during the first week of the month and also only one day with lows in the 50s during the last weekend of the month.
We went through a few dry stretches of weather during August but overall ended fairly close to average. Thanks to some thunderstorm downpours total August rainfall surpassed 3" which is just below the monthly average of 3.65".
