...A RELATIVELY MILD SUMMER WITH ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION...

OVERALL THE SUMMER OF 2013 WILL BE REMEMBERED AS A RELATIVELY MILD
AND WET SUMMER WITH A FEW STREAKS OF HOT WEATHER. DESPITE NUMEROUS
DAYS WITH AVERAGE TEMPERATURES BELOW NORMAL...THE OVERALL SUMMER
SEASON ENDED JUST UNDER A DEGREE BELOW NORMAL THANKS TO A COUPLE
STRETCHES OF VERY WARM TEMPERATURES. JUNE AND AUGUST EXPERIENCED
ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION WHILE JULY WAS BELOW NORMAL. MOST OF THE
PRECIPITATION IN AUGUST FELL DURING THE FIRST THREE DAYS OF THE
MONTH...SKEWING THE MONTHLY TOTAL. MOST OF AUGUST WAS VERY DRY AND
THIS WAS BEGINNING TO SHOW ITSELF AS THE UNITED STATES DROUGHT
MONITOR BEGAN TO SHOW ABNORMALLY DRY CONDITIONS EXPANDING ACROSS THE
REGION IN LATE AUGUST.

THE AVERAGE SUMMER TEMPERATURE WAS 71.1 DEGREES...0.6 DEGREES BELOW
NORMAL. THIS RANKS AS THE 34TH COOLEST SUMMER ON RECORD. THERE WERE
JUST 5 DAYS WITH A HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 90 DEGREES OR GREATER...FOUR
OCCURRING IN JULY AND ONE IN AUGUST. THIS IS WELL BELOW THE OFFICIAL
NORMAL OF 12 DAYS AND MUCH LOWER THAN LAST SUMMER WHEN 42 DAYS HAD
TEMPERATURES IN THE 90S. THE AVERAGE NUMBER OF 90 DEGREE DAYS OVER
THE PAST 10 YEARS AT FORT WAYNE HAS BEEN 18. THE WARMEST
TEMPERATURE OF THE SUMMER WAS 92 ON JULY 16TH AND 18TH. THE COOLEST
TEMPERATURE WAS 47 ON JUNE 3RD AND 4TH.

SUMMER PRECIPITATION WAS 14.67 INCHES...2.63 INCHES ABOVE NORMAL.
THIS RANKS AS THE 12TH WETTEST SUMMER AT FORT WAYNE. ABOUT ONE
THIRD OF ALL DAYS EXPERIENCED MEASURABLE PRECIPITATION...WHICH IS
SLIGHTLY ABOVE NORMAL. THERE WERE 10 DAYS WITH PRECIPITATION GREATER
THAN OR EQUAL TO ONE HALF INCH AND 4 DAYS WITH AN INCH OR MORE OF
PRECIPITATION. BOTH OF THESE WERE ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE SEASON.
