Unusual August Weather

Even as a meteorologist, I can't believe we've had such cool weather in August for such a prolonged period of time. Through Saturday, we've had 11 days in a row with below normal temperatures and the last 90 degree reading we had was back on the 6th. We should get at least another 5 days in before the temperatures make a big jump back into the 90s, which should happen by Friday around here. It was nice to see western Kansas get some measurable rainfall, and there will be more coming at least through Monday.

The same system bringing rain to Kansas has dumped 6 inches of snow near Loveland Pass, CO. August is way to early to start talking about snow, even in those high elevations. It is going to take most of the week for it to change, but our weather pattern will change by the end of the week, allowing for the 90s to return along with a south wind. It sure would be nice to save some of this cooler weather for the state fair, which is just a few weeks away. Looks like I'll be up in Hutch on Monday and Wednesday of the fair week. Millie might make an appearance too, and I'll let you know for sure.
