Bone Dry

Image
It has been extremely dry the past two weeks. No significant rainfall to mention for OSNW3. Only 46% of the average precipitation fell for the entire month of August (1.91" of 4.15"). For the year, though, we are above average (33.22" of 31.57" - 105%). Temperatures have been a bit above average the past few days but overall we're below average for the month of August. Here's hoping for some WEATHER in September!!

During the early morning of August 4th, a thunderstorm rolled through Oshkosh bringing with it the most cloud to ground lighting I've ever witnessed. The thunder was loud and deep. We received a bountiful amount of precipitation as the overnight storm dropped 1.35" bringing the 24 hour total to 1.54". Since then, a 13 day duration, we've received just 0.04". As of August 17th we have received 43% of our monthly average (1.82" of 4.15").

Temperatures were below average this past week for the most part, and it was a wonderful break from the heat and humidity of the week preceding it. The average max temp this August is averaging 4.1° lower then last August. No 90's yet and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we do not experience a day that reaches 90+.
