July Weather in August

Regardless of which weather forecast you monitor, it will be hot over the next 7 days.  Some show temps being hotter than others, but they all show no rain-which is the most important part for us.  Being able to control how much moisture is in the soil and on the surface is terribly important through these stretches.  Most of the forecasts are showing lower humidities which is good.  With this stretch comes the usual warnings of the potential for the adjustment of maintenance practices that will favor turf health while the surfaces experience temperatures that are beyond its normal adaptability.

The end of the 10 day forecast shows the potential for temperatures to be back in the mid 50s by middle of next week.  I have read some forecasters who are predicting upper 40s after Labor Day with potential for frost by mid September!
