                 AUGUST WEATHER IN SAN DIEGO

AUGUST IS NORMALLY OUR WARMEST MONTH WITH THE NORMAL HIGH OF 77.5
DEGREES, THE NORMAL LOW 67.4 DEGREES AND THE MONTHLY NORMAL OF
72.5 DEGREES.  EXTREMES SINCE THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE NATIONAL
WEATHER SERVICE RECORDS IN 1872 WERE 98 DEGREES IN 1955 AND 54
DEGREES IN 1895.  READINGS OF 80 DEGREES OR HIGHER WERE FAR FROM
COMMON AND THERE HAVE BEEN 13 DAYS DURING THE ENTIRE PERIOD
WITH MAXIMUM RECORDS FOR THE DAY OF 90 DEGREES OR HIGHER.

RAIN SELDOM FALLS IN THE CITY AND 60 PERCENT OF THE AUGUSTS HAVE
BEEN WITHOUT A MEASURABLE AMOUNT.  THE MONTHLY RAINFALL AVERAGE
IS 0.10 INCH AND THE AVERAGE NUMBER OF RAINY DAYS WITH 0.01 INCH
OR MORE IS ONE.  HOWEVER, ON THE 16TH AND 17TH IN 1977 THERE WAS
2.13 INCHES FROM THE REMNANTS OF TROPICAL STORM DOREEN. ALSO,
IN 1873 AND 1854 THERE WERE 1.95 INCHES AND 1.36 INCHES RESPECTIVELY.
AS IN THE OTHER SUMMER MONTHS, THUNDERSTORMS HAVE BEEN RARE AND NEVER
SEVERE EXCEPT IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS. THE HIGHEST WIND
RECORDED AT THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BEING ONLY 29 MPH.

USUALLY SKIES BECOME CLEAR BY MIDMORNING AND AS A RESULT SUNSHINE
IS PLENTIFUL WITH A MONTHLY MEAN OF 70 PERCENT OF POSSIBLE
SUNSHINE AND IS THE 6TH SUNNIEST MONTH OF THE YEAR.  CLEAR DAYS
AVERAGE 15, PARTLY CLOUDY 12, CLOUDY 4 AND 1 DAY WITH HEAVY FOG.
THERE IS LITTLE CHANGE IN RELATIVE HUMIDITY FROM JULY, THE

NOON AND 66 PERCENT IN THE LATE AFTERNOON.
