Creeping On All-Time Wettest Summer

The middle part of August saw a welcomed cool down. A string of days recording below normal temps and low dew points made everyone much more comfortable. Unfortunately we were in Brooklyn, NY during this period to enjoy it. However, the daily weather descriptions left by the back-up OSNW3 observers, MarkMartin and Jeff Bollier, made my daydreams of cooler weather come true. I thank you gentlemen! WeatherScout also noticed and documented the great weather pattern. I am certain that this autumn will feel a bit cooler than usual even though the temps will be average due to our extremely hot and humid summer. My acclimation to dew points in the middle sixties is disheartening.

Oshkosh City Tournament
Since the early 1930's, the city of Oshkosh has held an annual city golf tournament. I'm fortunate enough to have been participating in it since 2005. This weekend is the big weekend for 2010. 170 participants will battle through a two day 36 hole grind. I say grind because it's going to be sticky. Much more humid than the past five, from what I can remember...

(Weekend Forecast)
Saturday: A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 7am. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 83. Calm wind becoming north northeast between 4 and 7 mph.

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 84. North northeast wind around 7 mph.

Front Of House
We're on cut number 9 and August is starting to dry us out. The morning of Aug 24 I noticed some color coming through on the tree across the street, see below. OSNW3 is still in second place for all-time Oshkosh wettest summers. The data set for the precipitation rankings can be found here.

This entry from the NWS Milwaukee is interesting...
