Summer Time

July ends on a dry spell, so to speak. Only 0.20" in the last seven days. The two tenths round out the month completing the wettest July in Oshkosh's history. 11.84" were recorded here at OSNW3. More on the record rain in July from the NWS, here. The 6-10 and 8-14 day forecast calls for more above average temperatures and precipitation.

**Addendum : Moister Than Most is a great "top news of the day" entry from the NWS in the Twin Cities. It references the many reasons for the heavy rainfall we have experienced this Summer.

I can hardly believe it's August already. Summer is flying by. It's been noticeably warmer this Summer than last and I am enjoying it. Keep it coming.
