Last 3 days of July.The first half of the month was very hot,so July will end up well above normal,with below normal rainfall for me,but many areas hit by torrential downpours that past couple of weeks will have above normal.We end July with unsettled and much cooler weather,and it looks like August may start out much cooler than normal.Next week,may be close to record lows for a couple of the mornings,we'll have to wait and see.Also August the tropical season starts to ramp up.TS Dorian,fell apart over the weekend,and we'll have to wait and see if it can rejuvenate,Florida will have to watch this closely.We here in New England are safe right now,with the current weather pattern,as the low is coming down from Canada,but a long tropical season ahead.
So yesterday,they gave a very slight chance of a storm as the cold front approaches.Well,slight chance was pretty good.We had some pretty heavy storms form in the afternoon,and frequent lightning and heavy downpours,some downpours came down with bright sunshine. Now a couple of beautiful summer days with low humidity.
So we say goodbye to July,which for the most part was above normal with two heat waves during mid July and very humid.We are ending on a less humid more comfortable note.
So August is one of those months that starts the transistion.The first half is still very summery,but daytime daylight is shrinking rapidly.We lose our long evenings.The last half of August still can be hot,but also the cooler mornings are evident.Summer seems to just fly by.
The start of August always represents to me the sliding down the hill toward winter.Evenings are getting shorter,more cold fronts are starting to come down out of Canada with cooler nights.
This year we are starting august on the cooler wetter side.Heavy rain is expected to move in this evening and through the night ending tomorrow morning.Ok weekend,but chance of showers each afternoon.At this point,no hot weather in sight,in fact most of the country is below 90,except for the Southwest.
This is also the time of year we start to watch the waves coming off of Africa for development.Right now alot of dry air and dust from the Sahara will keep things quiet for a little while.
Unusual pattern for this time of year with deep troughs digging down along the east US,which is creating very unsettled weather and much cooler temps.This will save the ac bills/electric,but it makes the summer feel shorter. Would like to see more summery weather before fall sets in,but no hot weather in the cards for now.
