AUGUST

...A COOL END...

AUGUST 2019 MAY BE NOTABLE FOR REFRESHING EPISODES OF HIGH PRESSURE
ERASING THE OFTEN MORE MEMORABLE SUMMER HEAT AND HUMIDITY.
OTHERWISE, THE MONTH OFFERED VERY FEW EXCITING ITEMS TO NOTE HERE.

EPISODES OF ABOVE AND BELOW NORMAL AVERAGE DAILY TEMPERATURES. A
MAJORITY OF THE MONTH`S PRECIPITAITON FELL ON TWO DAYS; THE 18TH SAW
