...ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES AND ABOVE NORMAL PRECIPITATION FOR THE
MONTH...

THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE WAS ABOVE NORMAL FOR THE MONTH. MUCH OF THE
FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH FEATURED ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES WITH HIGH
HUMIDITY. A PERIOD OF BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES WAS EXPERIENCED
DURING THE MIDDLE PORTIONS OF THE MONTH HOWEVER. PRECIPITATION WAS
ABOVE NORMAL FOR MUCH OF NORTHERN INDIANA INCLUDING THE SOUTH BEND
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, ALTHOUGH SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL PRECIPITATION
WAS OBSERVED JUST TO THE NORTH ACROSS PORTIONS OF SOUTH CENTRAL
LOWER MICHIGAN.

THE AVERAGE MONTHLY TEMPERATURE WAS 72.8, OR 1.5 DEGREES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 35TH WARMEST AUGUST ON RECORD.
HIGH TEMPERATURES REACHED 90 OR ABOVE FOR ONLY 2 DAYS ON THE 4TH
AND 5TH. THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE WAS 91 ON THE 5TH. DESPITE THE
ABOVE NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR THE MONTH, A RELATIVELY COOL PERIOD
WAS EXPERIENCED FROM THE 20TH TO 25TH WITH HIGH TEMPERATURES IN THE
MIDDLE AND UPPER 70S.

PRECIPITATION FOR THE MONTH WAS 5.44 INCHES, 1.68 INCHES ABOVE
NORMAL. THIS RANKED AS THE 20TH WETTEST AUGUST ON RECORD.
MEASUREABLE PRECIPITATION FELL ON 14 DAYS AND OVER HALF OF THE
MONTHLY PRECIPITATION FELL WITHIN THE FIRST 7 DAYS OF THE MONTH. THE
GREATEST DAILY PRECIPITATION TOTAL OF 1.94 OCCURRED ON THE 6TH.
