Warm August outlook

August 2, 2012

  Have you lost track of “normal”? Our average high temperature this time of year in the Twin Cities is 83 degrees. We topped that this afternoon, and Friday will be another warm day. If you’d like to give your air-conditioner a break, hang in there….cooler temperatures are on tap for the weekend.

  Looking ahead a bit, the updated August outlook from the Climate Prediction Center of the National Weather Service still shows a tendency for above-normal temperatures over Minnesota and Wisconsin:

  The outlook doesn’t mean that you should expect above-normal temperatures every day, but there is a good chance that the 31 days of August will average out above normal. July in the Twin Cities ended up 6.4 degrees above normal, and our average high temperature was a whopping 89.9 degrees. In case you’re wondering, our Twin Cities average monthly high temperature has been over 90 degrees only two times:  92.5 degrees in July 1936 and 90.2 degrees in July 1988. Hope you have a great August!
