CLIMATE: August 2015 was warm and dry, the average temperature was 76.3 degrees which was around three degrees warmer than normal and it was the warmest August since 2005. Precipitation was only 1.54 ” which made this the driest August since 1996. Only 4.09″ of rain has fallen in the last two months. Every August day had high temperature of 80 degrees or higher, that is the first time in my records that this occurred in any month since I started records in 1973.
