Warmer Temps In August

By: chatcat , 12:41 AM GMT on August 20, 2009

Since August has begun, we have seen our temps closer to normal, but we continue to have the jet stream dipping down creating cooler than normal temps. We continue to have above normal rainfall, our total for the month at 4.3" and we're expecting more tonight. In fact, thunderstorms are knocking on our door at this time. A tornado watch has just been issued for the counties just to our SW so its just a matter of time before our county is included also. There has been severe weather this afternoon in Iowa and Illinois and that's what is heading our way for tonight through tomorrow morning.
