My recollection is that August normally has plenty of thunderstorms (with accompanying rain), and there have hardly been any in past month around here.
Past 10 days have been warmer & more humid, but the few weeks preceding that were not-so-hot, temperature-wise.

Can only weigh in on what it's been like for southeast VT region, though.
June & July seemed typical enough, with uncomfy muggy days (heat & humidity combination)
and the thunderstorms & lightning (and bursts of rain) that go along with those conditions.

August did *not* seem that way (with regard to it being very hot & humid with numerous t-storms).
It's not like it was noticeably/extremely dry (to my awareness), we have had a few overcast rainy days-
but the usually frequent t-storms have been surprisingly few and far between during past month.
Weather of last 10 days is more like what I'd expect for entire month of August, not just the final week.

Interesting. Nice write up!

Looks like after this weekend we finally see that slow transition to fall. I think the warmest air of the year is now behind us but doesn't mean we can't warm to around 80 still.

Front comes through Saturday. Low 40s for higher elevations.

THE RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE OVER THE REGION THROUGH
THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER THAN
NORMAL...WITH MAXES IN THE L-M70S IN THE VALLEYS AND U50S-L60S IN
THE MTNS. MIN TEMPS WILL FALL INTO THE L50S IN THE VALLEYS AND
L40S IN THE MTNS.

You guys will love next week. 60s & 70s for Highs and Not Humid until end of week., night lows in the 50s .. If all goes right, it's the week after when you guys will start to wonder about upcoming seasons. Models showing the first real cool air of the season.

2:30pm Heat Index. Temps mostly in the 80s throughout the region, dewpoints in the 70s along the coastal plain, 60s elsewhere..

If you have any clouds above you today it should be generally coming from the North. best type of flow (IMO of course )

Clear skies tonight = radiational cooling and maybe "scattered" frost for higher elevations/some spots.

I like the new forecast map from NWS except the color blend can be tricky.(ie 40s/low 50s)


From NWS Burlington

"A cool night expected tonight. 30s and 40s expected."

If you look up and see no clouds around think about protecting any tropical or sensitive plants. I have a few plants that don't tolerate 40s. Everything else can withstand some frost.

No freeze threat yet... Although next weekend could get interesting.

Enjoy the clear chilly night.

When do you guys usually start turning on the heat (or lighting the fire)?

47 here this morning. Left all the windows open last night. Oops.

Last year I lasted til Oct 1...when I initially turned on the heat it was just to get things warmed up in the mornings - I work from home and it took a while for the sun to warm up the house lol.
