AUGUST STARTED OUT WITH A SLIGHT ABOVE NORMAL LEAN THROUGH THE 8TH
BEFORE A SLIGHT BELOW NORMAL LEAN TOOK OVER THROUGH THE MIDDLE TO
LATTER PORTION OF THE MONTH. THESE TWO LEANS AVERAGED OUT AND THE
MONTH FINISHED OUT RIGHT AROUND NORMAL FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST,
WHICH RESULTS IN THE 61ST WARMEST AUGUST WHEN COMPARED TO THE PERIOD
OF RECORD. THERE WERE NO DAILY TEMPERATURE RECORDS SET THIS MONTH.

PRECIPITATION FINISHED OUT JUST OVER A HALF INCH BELOW NORMAL.
DESPITE SEEING 0.1 INCH OR GREATER 6 DAYS THIS MONTH, WHICH IS
GREATER THAN THE MONTHLY AVERAGE OF 5 DAYS, THE RAINFALL TOTALS
THOSE DAYS WERE STILL NOT ENOUGH TO PUSH THE MONTHLY TOTAL ABOVE THE
MONTHLY NORMAL. AS SUCH, THE MONTH FINISHED OUT AS THE 71ST DRIEST
AUGUST WHEN COMPARED TO THE PERIOD OF RECORD. THERE WERE NO DAILY
PRECIPITATION RECORDS SET THIS MONTH.
