REMARKS...

BOTH TEMPERATURES AND PRECIPITATION WERE NEAR THEIR NORMAL VALUES
FOR AUGUST. HOT CONDITIONS WERE COMMON IN THE EARLY PORTIONS OF THE
MONTH WITH HEAT INDEX VALUES REACHING 100 TO 110 AUGUST 3 AND
4...AND AGAIN FROM THE NINTH THROUGH THE ELEVENTH. LESS THAN TWO-
THIRDS OF AN INCH OF RAIN ACCUMULATED THROUGH AUGUST 18...BUT A MUCH
WETTER PERIOD ENDED THE MONTH. THUNDERSTORMS IMPACTED THE CITY ON
EIGHT OF THE FINAL NINE DAYS OF THE MONTH. THUNDERSTORMS ON AUGUST
19 PRODUCED 55 MPH WINDS AT BOTH BILLARD AIRPORT AND FORBES FIELD
AND SPOTTY TREE DAMAGE.
