The August 2021 #Climate Summary is hot off the presses from the @ColoradoClimate Center

Click here to read the summary. Here’s an intro from email:

A continued active monsoon pattern has resulted in further improvements to drought conditions over western Colorado while short-term abnormally dry spots have popped up over eastern Colorado.

Overall, August 2021 was what we typically expect to see, especially in recent years – hot temperatures, dry conditions, the occasional spotty shower. And similar to many of our recent years, the month ended warmer and drier than average.

For western Colorado, summer 2021 was HOT! In fact, this makes 7 summers out of the last 10 years that have been warmer than average. This was the second hottest summer in the record, going back 127 years. The hottest summer was 2018.
