Etters a mostly rural area in York County, is across the Susquehanna River from Harrisburg, the Pennsylvania State Capital.  As early as 1838 a post office was established at Henry Etter's tavern.  Henry Etter became the first post master.  It is believed this is where the post office, located in Goldsboro, got its name.  (Information from Goldsboro post office documents.)

Outlook -

8/13/2017 - Sunday

Warming up some this week especially, toward the end. Looks dry early, more chance of rain by Thursday into Saturday. Haven't had a drought this summer, nice change from the past summers. 

 

Looking at August-  

Average high temperatures now fall, by 5 degrees this month. They start out at 86 degrees for the average high, and fall to 81 degrees by the end of the month. 

The average low starts at 66, and falls 5 degrees to 61 by the end of the month. 

The record high is 104, in 1918. The record low is 45 degrees, in 1976.  

The average precipitation is on the light side, at 3.24". Again varies widely due to most of it from scattered storms. Just like in July when HIA recorded over 4" one day, while here, 0.8 miles away, we had under 2 inches.

The wettest August had 10.3" of rain, in 1915.

 

Looking back at July- 

The average temperature exceeded the average by 1.7 degrees. This average of the highs and lows came in at 77.6.  The average high was 86.0 degrees, the average low was 69.1 degrees.

There were 399 cooling degree days, 61 above average. Total season now is 741, 125 above average. 

Rainfall at HIA was high at 9.53", way above average by 4.92". Almost all of the extra,  4.71", fell on the 23rd.
