Most impressive to me about this summer was the persistence of the pattern and the very limited weather variability over northern Utah, which we have discussed in previous posts (see The Most Boring Summer Ever?). Now that August is in the record books, we can say that there was only one day in July and August combined and only 9 days during all of meteorological summer (June through August) that produced a below average minimum temperature. Simply remarkable. Note that "average" in this case is likely for the 1981-2010 period. Things would be skewed even more if we did this relative to the average of the 20th century.
Perhaps my memory is dim, but my guess is that it has been since sometime in June that we had a bonafide cold-frontal passage in Utah (thunderstorms and monsoon surges don't count!). Let the cold-frontal watch begin!
