We're going over the hill!
July is coming to a close, the days are getting shorter, the average temperatures are soon to go downward, back to school items are front and center in the stores.....winter's almost here!
Alright, let's not sound to pessimistic but rather optimistic! We have plenty of good things to look forward to:
We go through some pretty decent changes in the month of August here in Burlington and the rest of the region. The following stats are for Burlington, but if you want a town closer to yours then click this link and follow it to the National Weather Service Burlington's climate page.
So far since the summer solstice, we've lost
51 minutes of daylight
Our average high temperature in Burlington will fall from:
81° on August 1 to
76° on August 31
Our average low temperature will fall from:
60° on August 1 to
56° on August 31
From August 1 to 31 we will lose
71 minutes of daylight.
We've already lost 51 minutes as of July 30 so by the end of August we'll be down more than two hours!
Later this week I'll have a recap of July 2012 in the Burlington area. Let me just say it was a very warm month!
