August weather recap

August weather recap

ILLINOIS (RFD) — The downspout of the spring wetness turned off in mid-July and hardly turned on at all in August.

Chris Miller with the National Weather Service in Lincoln says most of the state was well below average for rainfall in August.

Normally, August is a hot and dry month. While we got the dry part right, Miller points out August wasn’t all that hot given the trends.

Because of high humidity throughout the summer, Miller says things have felt a lot worse than they have been.
