...REMARKS...
EARLY IN THE MONTH...HIGH PRESSURE BROUGHT CLEAR SKIES
AND WARM...DRY CONDITIONS. A RECORD HIGH OF 80 DEGREES WAS SET ON
THE THIRD...SMASHING THE OLD RECORD OF 76 DEGREES WHICH WAS SET IN
1991. TEMPERATURES ENDED THE MONTH SIGNIFICANTLY ABOVE NORMAL WITH
BOTH HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES ENDING UP NEARLY 5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. ALL OF THIS WARM WEATHER WAS DUE TO THE CONTINUED WARM OCEAN
WATER TEMPERATURES AND PERIODIC OFFSHORE FLOW.

DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE MONTH...A SERIES OF WARM WEATHER
SYSTEMS BROUGHT MUCH NEEDED RAINFALL TO THE AREA. DESPITE 12 OF THE
FIRST 14 DAYS OF THE MONTH BEING DRY...THE MONTH ENDED UP WITH 4.74
INCHES OF RAIN OR 210 PERCENT OF NORMAL. THIS IS THE SECOND MONTH IN
A ROW WITH ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL...BRINGING THE SEASONAL RAINFALL
SINCE JULY FIRST TO 7.87 INCHES...MORE THAN TWICE THE SEASONAL
NORMAL. LAST YEAR AT THIS POINT WE ONLY HAD 3.22 INCHES.
