...Waco climate narrative for August 2014...

August was the first month with an above normal mean temperature at Waco Regional Airport since September 2013. Despite the relative warmth...2014 was the coolest Summer since rainy 2007. There have been 13 triple-digit high temperatures so far in 2014...all of which occurred during July and August. This is the fewest at this point in a calendar year since 2007 and is well below the 30-year average of 24 days.

After 8.31 inches of precipitation in June...only 1.13 inches fell during July and August combined. The Summer total was more than 2 inches above normal...which belies the dryness of the last 2 months.
