...VERY WET MONTH WITH ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES...

THE MONTH BEGAN AND ENDED ON A DRY NOTE, BUT OVERALL THE MONTH
WAS CHARACTERIZED BY MUCH ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION. THIS ABOVE
NORMAL PRECIPITATION CHARACTERIZED MUCH OF THE REGION ALTHOUGH THE
GREATEST MONTHLY TOTALS WERE EXPERIENCED FROM THE FORT WAYNE
VICINITY EASTWARD INTO PORTIONS OF NORTHWEST OHIO. HOT AND HUMID
CONDITIONS OCCURRED FOR MUCH OF THE MONTH, ALTHOUGH A BRIEF PERIOD
OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES OCCURRED DURING THE MIDDLE PORTIONS OF
THE MONTH.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 74.0, OR 2.5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 18TH WARMEST AUGUST ON RECORD TIED
WITH 1909. HIGH TEMPERATURES REACHED 90 OR ABOVE FOR ONLY 2 DAYS
ON THE 4TH AND 26TH WHEN THE HIGH TEMPERATURE WAS 90 BOTH DAYS.
DESPITE THE ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE MONTH, A RELATIVELY
COOL PERIOD WAS EXPERIENCED FROM THE 22ND TO 25TH WITH HIGH
TEMPERATURES IN THE MIDDLE AND UPPER 70S.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 7.77 INCHES, 4.13 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 3RD WETTEST AUGUST ON RECORD.
MEASUREABLE PRECIPITATION FELL ON 10 DAYS AND ABOUT 60 PERCENT OF
THE MONTHLY TOTAL OCCURRED FROM 15TH TO THE 21ST. THE
GREATEST DAILY PRECIPITATION TOTAL OF 1.43 INCHES OCCURRED ON THE
20TH. THREE DAYS IN THE MONTH EXPERIENCED DAILY PRECIPITATION
GREATER THAN ONE INCH ON THE 16TH, 20TH, AND 25TH.
