Mid 90*s forecast until Sat, then a 10* temperature drop for the rest of the ten day forecast.
Maybe we'll have turned the corner on the worst of this summer's heat here in E Idaho.
August still gets hot of course, but it seems to take much longer to get to the peak heat of the day, and the night seems to begin to cool at an earlier hour. The occasional August thunderstorms will cool an afternoon quickly, and if it comes late enough toward evening there'll be good sleeping that night under an open window.
Late August has been seeing the very first signs of the Autumn leaf change in the low bushes along the river, at least over the last several years, and I am always glad to see that harbinger of the seasonal change.
For those of us who keep an eye to such things, the early signs of the coming season we most look forward to are beginning to appear all around us. July it may be for a few more days yet, but we are definitely on the downhill side of the long hot days.
Time to get the boat ready, shake out the decoys, locate all the foul weather gear where it's been in hiding since last winter, and start being extra sweet to the wife (no telling all the slack that might earn you over the fall season), and all the hundred and one things that have become part of the preseason ritual.
