Interested in the cooler weather, I began to keep track of our deviation from the normal high temperatures. What I found didn't surprise me. Here are the data from June/July/August and a summer mean.
- Max Deviation: +13° on 6/1, 6/2, 6/17
- Mean Deviation: +5.73°
- Max Deviation: -19° on 7/21
- Mean Deviation: -6.84°
- Max Deviation: -18° on 8/30

MO-CW-1 Daily Observations
As was the theme last month, we have experienced below-average temperatures for much of August. I had a few students asking if I'd close the window yesterday! I love the crisp air that September and October bring...I just never expected it to be here so early. The weather complaint compartment can take a vacation in Missouri.
High: 93° on 8/11 and 8/12
Low: 49° on 8/30
Mean Temperature (Average): 72.11° (75.65°)
Mean High (Average): 81.9° (87.3°)
Mean Low (Average): 62.4° (64.0°)
August precipitation gave us another surplus of 1.01". Check out the stark contrast between 2007 and 2009. We had quite a bad drought that summer along with some brutal 100° days. We haven't had any precipitation >0.10" for two weeks now, so even though our numbers are impressive, we are feeling pretty dry right now.
Average August Precip: 3.64"
I'm starting to see some fall color here and there (maybe some trees are experiencing stress?) One tree by our school is in bright orange/yellow. I'll post any updates as I see them. Enjoy the transition everyone!
