Unfortunately, August will end much like it began, hot and dry. The hot and dry weather conditions will likely continue into the first week of September as well. Beyond that, I am seeing some positive signs that a cooler and wetter weather pattern will arrive around September 10. College Station has had a high temperature of at least 100 degrees for 15 days so far in August with only 0.78 inches of rainfall. That’s a hot and dry month! I think September has a good chance of being a cooler and wetter month. We could really use the rain and cooler temperatures!
Of course, much could change if a tropical cyclone develops and moves towards Texas, but that currently seems unlikely for at least the next 10 days. The climatological peak of the Atlantic Hurricane Season is September 10, so we could definitely see the tropics heat up quickly throughout the next several weeks. I will be keeping a close eye on the tropics throughout the next month and will let you know of any potential threats to the area.
