August Weather Outlook

August 1, 2012, 6:22 AM by Scot Mundt

August Weather Outlook

While I don't expect to escape the heat entirely in August, it will be cooler than July.  Much of the month will continue above average for temperatures, but I don't think we'll be as above average when compared to July. 

Average highs in August start to go down, many locations will lose about five degrees from their average high from the first to the last of the month. We'll be going from the middle 80s in eastern KELOLAND at the beginning of the month to near 80 at the end.  And central South Dakota goes from 90 to the middle 80s.

The all important question is whether or not we can get rain.  Many locations in eastern KELOLAND average three inches of rain.  While just getting average rain will be considered a victory, we will have more chances for rain this month as compared to last month which will go down as the driest on record in Sioux Falls with just .24 inches. 

The better chance for rain is due to developing El Nino conditions in the Pacific Ocean.  The El Nino pattern in the late summer into fall typically gives us more rain than average.  We'll see if this happens.
