ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) - Atlanta's high temperature on Thursday was only 73 degrees which is the coolest high temperature on record for August 15.
The previous record was a high of only 77 degrees from 1908.
The average high temperature for this time of year is 88 degrees, putting Thursday's high 15 degrees below average.
Atlanta has seen a cooler-than-average summer due to a lot of rain. We're about 15 inches above average on rainfall this year.
Mod - please pull this thread so I can fix the article URL.
It has been in the low 80’s here in Memphis. Normal year we are over a 100....
Picked a good time for a vacation. It sure has rained a lot this summer.
Temps in the mid 40s here the night before last. 50s last night. (Southern Michigan)
Gonna be a beautiful weekend for a race at MIS. Its usually in the mid to upper 90s this time of year. High of 78 on Saturday and a high of 83 predicted for Sunday.
Sixteen degrees below normal today just outside Huntsville, AL.
Here in Central Florida we are still having our usual 90 degree days, but never over 100, and experiencing the thrill of having our seatbelt buckles also serve as branding irons.
Regardless of the temperature....please stop raining. We have algae on the mushrooms here. Literally has not rained for more than a two day period for months.
Weather varies. Temps go up and down. There is no “normal” temperature. There is no “should be” temperature. Watching the weather forecast would be much more fun if weatherpeople would just get that into their heads.
That glo-bull warming can be a bear.
Now we got them by the short hairs!
OR- you can update the URL for me:
Where the heck ARE you?!
You can send all that rain to Texas, please!!!
Temp may have touched 68 at my house today in Marietta, GA, which is a NW suburb of Atlanta, but it was basically 67 for nearly all the afternoon. Unbelievable for a mid-August day in Georgia.
“We have algae on the mushrooms here.”
Rainy season is coming up here soon. I’ll have to look out for that. We get algae on the house, and mushrooms spring up in the yard — but, I haven’t noticed algae on the mushrooms yet.
Coming soon to a theatre near you:
After the republicans have overheated the planet and generated record rains worldwide, where are you going to go to dry out. Women and children are drowning every second of the day because of republicans. The war on dry is out of control. Enter a new man for the 21st century. Obama Dryer. Give us all your money and we will end the ruinous rein of republicans.
Help us Obama Dryer...
I went for a drive in my convertible yesterday (North Carolina) and expected I would be able to put the top down, but it was too darn cold!! In August!!
I’ll trade ya.
Been cold out here on the Cal coast all summer.
Global cooling whining set to ensue...
Woe is us, we’re all gonna die...
All you need is a speech from AlGore on globull warming.
You'll be okay.
And you can have it. If we are not in a drought where you can’t wash a car, we have floods and endless drizzle. It feels like Oregon here. We came back from Ireland in May (who also had a terrible Spring) and I told my wife the weather was better in Eire.
I have moss on the roof (so I can find north), mold and algae on the deck and stoop, weeds galore and slime mold in the lawn. Lack of sun causing all kinds of issue with the garden. No vegetable for the summer really. Stinks.
That’s because Gobular Slarming.
95 degrees at 3:30 PM in Pocatello, ID. Daytime temps have been between 95 and 103. Bone dry :-). The window in my bedroom has been open since mid May. Night time temps between 54 and 76. Great Summer...except for an occasional smokey offering from the 310 square miles of burning forest west of my location.
Didn’t get out of the ‘80’s today in SE Texas, which is rare when the sun is shining in August. Wish we could get some of that 73 high temp stuff here. Well, maybe in late September.
Where I am in deep SE Texas, we had 5 inches Wednesday.
Just a few miles away it was only one and a half inch.
That's Texas for you. I've seen it raining buckets across the street from me, but my grass remained bone dry.
global warming is a hoax. now that there is no warming we should call out the media , gov and democrats, every second rub their noses in it.
this is the coldest winter, summer and spring I can remember ever( this year in 2013).
Look up cycle 24 and solar cycle 25 . there is no global warming never was. in fact the Earth will get much colder in the coming decades. we already feel the cold even now.
government and the media have been telling us for 30 years that CO2 is building up and causing global warming. but it hasnt gotten warmer. government funded 30 years of fake research to create the hoax called global warming. 30 years of gov funding fake studies. this proves socialism/government can never work. now the media and gov use this fake research to further cripple the economy and take away our freedom
More evidence of Man-caused Climate Change, no doubt about it!
We’re certainly lovin’ it.
CO2 has skyrocketed every year for a the last 300 years
But there’s been NO corresponding warming
And democrats say we conservatives are anti-science lol.
no we are anti fake government funded fake science meant to destroy capitalism and our freedom
