With the calendar reading September 1st, August is in the books (along with the summer), and meteorological fall is officially upon us.
BUT…it won’t feel that way for a couple days.
Temperatures will likely reach the 80s, even near 90°, Monday and Tuesday. A cold front will then sweep through Tuesday, providing a slight chance of rain, and ushering back in the 70s for the rest of the week.
We’ve had quite a few of those pleasant, cool days lately. Enough, in fact, to put us slightly below average on temperatures for the month of August.
August rainfall was also a bit lower than normal.
Overall this summer finished up a bit warmer and drier than average.
Temperatures in the QC averaged 75° over June, July, and August, slightly higher than the normal 73.5°.
Rainfall was well under the average. Precipitation totaled 9.61″, almost 30% below normal.
Going forward, average temperatures and precipitation should decrease through the fall.
