Heading for Labor Day weekend, already. So much for summer again...
Looks decent, warm, maybe hot at times, and mostly dry. Could use some rain again though, but of course only at night!
We need to enjoy the fading warmth, as it looks like it will be gone by the middle of September. Right now the second half of September looks like at best the 70's, and some days only 60's for highs. Will keep an eye on it.
We start with an average high of 85 degrees, and drop to 81 degrees by the end. Our warmest average month is over already...
It has been as warm as 104 in 1918, and as cold as 45 in 1976.
