Warming Up for the End of August

Posted August 23rd, 2014 by Jill Reale. 13 comments

It has been a relatively cool August so far with 7 days of highs in the 80s and even one day with a high of 62°. If the month ended today, the average temperature for August 2014 would be 68.2°, which is 0.5° below normal. While it has been unseasonably cool so far, temperatures are looking to actually be ABOVE normal has we head into next week. How does this month stack up? Here is a list of Augusts that were COOLER than August of 2014 (so far)

2013: 67.8°

2008: 66.5°

2006: 67.2°

2004: 66.6°

1997: 67.9°

1994: 66.2°

1992: 65.1°

1990: 67.8°

1989: 66.6°

1987: 66.8°

1986: 65.5°

For the week ahead: A strong ridge will build in from the Midwest, not only giving us dry conditions with a lot of sunshine but also unseasonably warm temperatures. Highs for the middle of the week will approach the mid 80s. For the end of the work week, we will need to keep an eye on what is happening in the tropics. Tropical Depression 4 has develop in the Caribbean  today and is forecasted to turn into a Tropical Storm tomorrow at some point. There is still a lot of uncertainty on the path of this tropical system, with models being all over the place. We will at least see some extra moisture in the atmosphere by Thursday and Friday with a southerly wind.  We will keep you posted as we get closer.

    Holy cow I can finally log in! I haven’t been able to since March. Not much to talk about. Weather always seems nice during the week of the Fair.

    Morning folks. Several people have been having issues accessing this blog. If you are one of those folks, try logging in through linkjam.com. I don’t know why, but that seems to work in most cases. If that still doesn’t work, send me an email (bkardas@wktv.com). I need to get information from your computer to fix the problem.

    CJ – an area of low pressure will develop and slowly push through the region this weekend. Whether or not it will be a washout or just a few showers will depend on the exact track of the low, which isn’t certain yet. We’ll have more information by Thursday on details of how much and long the rain lasts.
