The lows could be much lower than they are now. Upper 60s aren't very comfortable. I agree that the pattern change looks wetter and somewhat cooler with the eastern trough setting up shop. I still think August will be yet another month of above average temperatures, though.

I think you are right. We are averaging 5 degrees above normal for this month and the extended forecast looks wet and warm (according to this mornings forecast). This will be 17 consecutive months of above average temps.

This "new normal" is certainly not welcome and has been disastrous for other parts of the country. Hopefully the winter pattern will be more beneficial for all of areas impacted by drought.

I'm in the process of putting together a graph that shows the above normal months we've had. But its for the coast. I believe Vermont will benefit from this trough thats looking to park itself not south of there. But yeah, its generally 4 above the Normal August mean so August could be another above normal however a couple of 10 below normal nights and we could be closer to "normal" then above.

Dont forget, As far as mean temps, Normal isnt just exactly 0.. It's 1 to -1. But we all count 1 as being above becuase its just easier data wise.. As far as daily Highs and Lows I use 2 to -2 as being normal.

Yes, I look at the temperature for the calendar date as the average between the low and high temperature in relation to a deparature. Most months this year have been 3F or more above the average which is pretty much unprecedented in duration based on how far back our temperature records go.

I don't have the link off hand, but I was looking at the charts on the NOAA website (I think). If you look at the data in decades, it is quite clear that we have been warming up for over a decade. We have these down-ticks every couple of years where it looks like we are headed to cool weather, but then we have several warm years. I will look for it if anyone can't find it. This is one of the charts. Contiguous U.S., Temperature, January-June 1895-2012

Question for you guys.. When do you usually turn your wood stoves on or heaters?

I usualy do on some nights in September but mostly October is when we first kick it on.

Wondering if we'll have to in August.

Your lows are already in the 40s? Wow! We're suffering with lows in the 70s.

Interesting to see this thread is still hopping. I thought it was only about snow.
