Which part? I remember always getting a day or two in late August with highs in the low to mid 80s with lows near 60 and low dewpoints. I remember one year we actually had upper 40s in Mid August in the wake of Hurricane Charley.
Maybe one out of four years that would happen. Usually the first cold front only drops humidity and doesn't drop temperatures.

We are really starting our seasonal cool down in the second half of August 85/65 or so in the last 10 days of August is fairly normal

I told yall charlotte stinks. from cancer in the soil around Huntersville because of coal ash, to natural gas spills in Huntersville as well, to raw sewage spills in charlottes drinking water... and according to the link it's only the largest in a year so this is normal business apparently. Muh progress. Muh development. Enjoy your poop water @Myfrotho704_ !

This is an interesting map. Apparently the further east you go the earlier your warmest day of the year will be. Further west its in early to Mid August. On average, most of NC has already seen their hottest weather of the year.View attachment 86896
South Florida is the same as western California, proving that longitude doesn't matter!

Has anyone noticed that there are fewer mosquitoes this year? Or they're biting less or something? I usually get tore up anytime I'm outside, but I have 0 bite this year. My neighbor mentioned the same thing to me the other day.

I've also noticed less fire ants, but that may be because I've done a good job killing a lot of them.

Maybe all the cicadas are eating the mosquitoes. I've noticed less as well.

NHC has 20% circle blob off the s/e coast on day 5 I see no one is talking about. Not even Webb
Way behind
I'd keep an eye on as early as next weekend into the next week as the trough lifts. Going to be an old front, low sfc pressures and maybe a mcv or 2 floating around. Good setup to make a mess with a tropical system that gets pushed west by the building bermuda ridge

Same, I had one mosquito on me this morning but that's it, usually they are swarming. I've still got some fire ants around but there does seem to be fewer mounds this year, now that I think of it within the last couple of weeks I've noticed fewer deer flies as well. Weird considering the high humidity

edit: now, the gnats, that's an entirely different story..... whatever has run off the other stuff don't mess with gnats, they are horrendous.

Probably the April freeze

Thank you. Yes this is very weird. I mean, I'm enjoying it, but something isn't right. It's not the wind, cause it was windy last summer. It isn't because it's super dry, because it isn't...well at least outside of Jonesville anyway. And it isn't because we've had too much fog or whatever. It's just weird.

Maybe they're anticipating the arrival of the west coast smoke and got the heck outta dodge. Something tells me that stuff has more than just wildfire smoke in it 😏
