August 2016 Weather

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Another typical summer day here.
High of 80, humid, but south breeze. Cloudy, so not bad day.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

Thanx! CG, still hot in Magnolia, Tx (still n Houston) 84* with 47% humidity, breeze is a breath at 6mph...

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

We continue to get into the upper 90's each day with heat index over 100, all people keep saying is that this is the hottest summer we've ever had...I agree. Rain is always nice, but has missed our house the past four days.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

Kittriana, I recently had my car in the shop. It was one of those 100+F days. The car sat in the sun all day. I could hardly get the window rolled up. I could hardly get the seatbelt on. I got mildly burned from the steering wheel.

They are calling for a high of 89F. It actually felt chilly this morning at 65F.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

Kelli! I know! I could feel my fingertips sizzle! I run a reefer - my thermometers tell me they are broken trying to get the inside veh temps. 160* is where they quit. Double heat inside those cars. That would stew your insides like a living stewpot - same as Death Valley!
96*- hi of 97* expected before dropping. 47% humidity means a Real Feel of 107* outside now.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

90 degrees here ,, Hot , humid , sunny ,,

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 85F. Yay, less hot! I am so glad that we rarely have humidity.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 85F again. I think it got hotter than that yesterday.

Liberty Hill, TX(Zone 8a)

It was 98 today with a heat index of 105....

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

90's indexes with High 80's today here , glad it is past

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 88F. That is warmer than enough for me.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

We are expecting 87 for a high with 95 or 96 for an index , Humidity and Sun keeps causing that

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

75 low humidity. NW breeze.
Lovely day.

Liberty Hill, TX(Zone 8a)

98 with a heat index of 107. I don't remember it being this hot for this long but I'm sure it's just me.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

Sounds so nice, CG, and 1lisac, you're probably right, this has been a much hotter longer than usual summer.

We've been getting our cooling rains in the afternoons finally, evenings are actually nice enough to sit outside again. Should stay like this next few days, anyhow. Still up to almost 90 before rains hit, but better than 98.

They are calling for a high of 88F. This has been an average summer, or maybe a couple of degrees less hot than average. For me, summer is just something to get through. My husband feels the same way.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

A milder lower 80's here today ,,shade is really pleasant , comfortable ,Temperature is the temperature today , no 15 to 20 degree increases as Heat indexes ,,

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

77
Partly sunny.
BEAUTIFUL DAY!

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 83F. I think I can tolerate that, though we still will need to run the air conditioner. We are not people who keep the house frigid. We set it at 76F during the day and 74F at night to get the upstairs below 80F. The temperature of the room we are usually in downstairs is probably more like 80F. It is definitely hotter than the hallway were the thermostat is.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 88F. Weather here is pretty boring.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

We keep our air at 81 during day and 76 during the night...that is our comfort level. My son keeps his town-home at 75 during the day and I actually need a throw to keep away the goosebumps. :-)

Tropical low hovering for days now off our west coast, keeping is partly to mostly cloudy and breezy, been nice outdoors. Some thunderstorms here and there.

Anderson, IN(Zone 6a)

88 sunny ,, ? what can I say ,, ?

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

83* and I warmed the truck temp from 58* to 72* because I am COLD. of all things. Wasnt facing the sun tho, so that is partly why - Pa tonite, over by State College. Dark night outside

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

Kittriana, 58F would be all right for me if I was walking, but not if I was sitting in a car or in the house.

They are calling for a high of 84F. We'll still have to run the air conditioner. The walls of the house seem to hold heat.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 85F. That is not bad for this time of year.

Liberty Hill, TX(Zone 8a)

It's 9 am and the temp is already 84 with a heat index of 90. 99/77 today with a heat index up to 112. We are under a heat advisory today however there is a chance of rain and lower temps this weekend into next week.

Winter Springs, FL(Zone 9b)

Lots of rain, been staying under 90 last few days. Low in Gulf is keeping us cooler, and seabreeze showers.

Magnolia, TX(Zone 8b)

I saw everything from 77* to 83* across Ohio, abt 10 seperate gullywashers leaving 2"-3" water in the road slowed everyone down

Yesterday was 89 with heat index of 101.
Caused storms overnight. Some areas got up to 12".
We had a nice rain that we needed.
Now if it quits so we can do the Farmers Market this afternoon.
We have about 50 pints of strawberries & pickling cucumbers to sell.
Temp now is 66.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

I can't imagine 12 inches of rain. We haven't been getting that much in a whole year.

They are calling for a high of 87F. DH read that it is supposed to be 114F next week. The forecast I look at did not say that. The one good thing about extremely hot weather is that is shuts up the loud, incessantly shrieking baby mockingbirds. Yes, they are still having babies this late in the year. This is their fifth brood of the year. Man, I hate those things. The adults are bad, too. They spread seeds of trash plants all around the yard, especially in places where they can't be dug out. I like all other birds. In our yard this past year, we had nests of hummingbirds, house wrens, and song sparrows and probably house sparrows in the strange gap between the air vent and brick veneer of the house.

Lewisville, MN(Zone 4a)

Some highways washed out I guess.
I imagine some crops will be lost.

L.A. (Canoga Park), CA(Zone 10a)

They are calling for a high of 85F. That is probably low for August here. Next week will heat up.
