Hot Days Are Numbered

August 23, 2011, 6:07 PM by Tony Barlow

Hot Days Are Numbered
There is no doubt this has been a hot summer. The last few weeks have been a little bit cooler, but June and July were extremely warm with plenty of humidity to go along with the heat. Now as the days start getting shorter, we have far less potential to see really hot weather.

Over the course of this month, we will lose about an hour and 18 minutes of daylight. That loss of sunshine drops normal temperatures about five to six degrees over the course of the month. That means by the end of the month, eastern South Dakota will see temperatures that will feel more like fall with highs in the upper 70s.

As we all know, normal readings don't always mean much with our crazy South Dakota weather. We have seen 90-degree readings into October across portions of the state.
