Weather Data: 8/10/20-8/16/20

Time for my 19th week of weather station data!  No lost data this week (thankfully).

The temperatures rose to a peak, with the high temperature on Saturday afternoon of 101.1 F.  We had a low temperature of 64.6 F on Tuesday morning. The dewpoints step increased on Wednesday evening, jumping to nearly 50 F.  They remained in the mid to upper 40s F the rest of the week.

There was 0.03″ of rain on Wednesday, and another 0.01″ on Saturday night.

The wind chart shows light winds, with a diurnal component (in speed and direction).  The strongest winds and the strongest gust (32 mph) was on Wednesday afternoon.

The high pressure was 30.14 in Hg (~1021 mb) on Friday morning, and the lowest pressure was on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, dropping down to 29.94 in Hg (~1014 mb). We have been under relatively high pressure, even in the afternoons.

There was some sunshine every day, though afternoon and evening clouds limited some of the sun’s power.

Thank you for reading my post.
