A below average month?

Posted: 16 Aug 2012 04:11 AM

August has seen a few very warm days and then a number of rather cold days for this time of year. The current result is for the statewide average temperature to be below average for August. The featured chart shows recent monthly temperature departures and if this departure holds, it would be the first below average month since September of last year. The extreme warmth of March 2012 sticks out like a sore thumb on this chart. The near term forecast has high temperatures below average, so perhaps August will finish on the cool side!

Good = 62
Bad = 13
