August Outlook

August is typically the hottest month for us, but so far our temperatures have remained below normal. Over the next few days, temperatures will keep inching their way back up to near normal or slightly above with highs in the mid-90s. Even though we don't expect any triple digit temperatures for the next eight days, higher humidity will push the heat index values to near 100 through the weekend.

An average August in Green Country has six days with highs in the 100s. However, it doesn't appear we will see a major heat wave in the region anytime soon. The latest 8-14 day outlook keeps us below normal through the middle of the month. Normal highs through the 19th are around 94 with lows near 72. Plus, we could also see an increased chance for rain during that same period. The normal monthly rainfall for August is 2.9 inches.
