Now that we're three days in to September, now's as good a time as any to look back at August. By the numbers:

High Wind: 48mph (8/4 4:17am)
Low Temp: 54° (8/28 7:01am)
High Temp: 98° (8/30 2:36pm)
Monthly Rainfall: 5.79" (3rd raininest month of the year)
High Daily Rainfall: 3.47" (8/4)

August was easily our hottest month of the year, with 13 days at or above 90°, with our coolest high temperature being 80°. We really didn't see much in the way of severe weather, as we got in to a pretty stagnent pattern. A blocking high pressure kept cold fronts at bay and left us with hot, humid weather.

Now we're on to September, a transition month here in Ohio. We could see hot weather, we could see cool weather, we could see anything and everything in between.

Looking Ahead
It's going to be cool this weekend. Unseasonably cool. It's looking like we may not reach 70° tomorrow, and barely above 70° on Sunday. Labor Day weekend will feel more like an early October weekend.

After that, we'll go back to low to mid 80's as the jet flattens out and brings in a new system about once every 3-4 days. Typical pattern.

Yup, this has me ready for snow.
