AUGUST WEATHER FORECAST

Not much has changed in the outlooks for the rest of summer into autumn and beyond.

In June, temperatures were about 1F above normal while in July temperatures were about -3F to -5F leading to an overall cooler than normal summer as forecast.

The trend will be for slightly cooler than normal temperatures to last through August but the departures will not be as great as August.

Rainfall in August will likely be close to normal.

Autumn and harvest season is still shaping up to be slightly cooler and wetter than normal but the freeze risk for first freeze looks like about normal as wetter soils will keep night time lows up some.
