Welcome to Autumn!

Officially, fall begins in about three weeks but we weather weenies march to the beat of a different drum. Meteorological Summer begins June 1st and lasts through today. So, without further adieu let’s take a look back at this long, hot summer.

Temperatures were obviously significantly higher than normal. July was a scorcher with 100 degree temperatures reported for the first time since 1989! The month averaged some six degrees above the typical July (using a 30 year average). June was warmer than normal because of a few 90 degree days early on. August was for all intents and purposes a perfectly normal month here!

Summer rains were repetitive in July with Pearl City, Illinois being flooded out for the second year in a row! Overall, the pattern was fairly dry though. There was really just one or two weeks with significant rainfall which tips the scales into the surplus category. It only takes one significant event to cause disaster. While this summer will be remembered for significant flash flooding, it will go down drier than normal. -ES
