August at a glance

The intense heat and humidity we experienced recently has taken a breather and temperatures this week are fairly seasonal.  As we move through this last month of meteorological summer (June, July, August), average high temperatures will drop as the fall season nears. Our average high on August 1 is 84°, but, by the end of the month, it’s 79° – a 5° difference. The amount of sunlight in our days is also growing shorter.  Over the month, we’ll lose more than 1 hour of daylight!
