Early Fall like weather to continue for today and into early next week before steady warm up begins.
The forecast for the month of August with a warmer ending is looking really good. This shot of early fall weather is the last big shot this month, and that too was a good call. There will be a little push to reinforce the cooler air on Sunday, but will not be as cool as it is today. So far we are cooler than average for the month, so can the second half bring the temps above normal? Time will tell.
The forecast for August to be a drier month has been blown up due to the major rainstorm of this week. Out of 15 days this month, 3 have brought rain. With one being a tiny amount (less than a tenth). But this last weeks 3+ is putting us about normal for the whole month. And next Tue is looking wet also. So .... not so dry; but that is okay with me. I prefer green over brown anyway.
Highlights into next week:
I still expect some heat for the beginning of school. Temps near 90 or above (heat wave?) for at least a few days, then a slight cool down before we warm up again. No deep troughs for now means no chilly shots of air for the near future. You can see this on the pics below. I am only showing the US model, but others are showing a similar signal.

The education continued as a hobby by reading the blogs of some of the best forecasters in the business. Although forceasting the weather is an imperfect science, it is a pleasure to follow what the Creator has made.
