The Cooling Continues

Besides a few warm days in the beginning of the month, it has been a carbon copy of July. On Monday, we experienced our first "dreary" day where the sun was nowhere to be seen. A reminder of things to come!
We are on the mark as of today in the rain bucket for August with a total of 3.61", only 0.03" behind the average for Fulton. Seems with the strong cold front passing through today we will have another above average month.
