August started off fairly wet and near normal temperatures. But it has turned dry.

Most of the area has seen over 2 inches of rain for the month. But, in the last week, rain has been a little scarce and temperatures have been on the rise.

There is a good chance for thunderstorms the next few days. I think the real news for Arizona is the ongoing heat and record-breaking temperatures in Arizona.

Here is the record map from HAMWeather.com. The red dots have spread to the west from Texas. The other big news fright now is Hurricane Irene. She could end up being a huge mess. Right now, computer projections show her to take one of the worse possible paths grazing the entire Atlantic Coast of the US. This could batter the entire East coast with hurricane force winds. Time will tell.
