Look up the trip planner feature on www.wunderground.com. It will give you the statistical data for a particular period of time, and that is going to be more accurate than individual opinions on what is, after all, something that can be measured.

Sometimes we'll get a couple rainy days, and we get some thunderstorms in the summer. Definitely can't count on great weather even if on average we have very nice summers (IMO).

Good luck!

I'd say August is the least rainy. We definitely get droughts.

Weather.com has historical data. Here's the link to monthly graphs: weather.com/outlook/…15203

August is the driest of the 3!

I work in the construction industry, and our work schedules are extremely weather-dependent, so I am very aware of how the weather changes through the summer. On average, August is definitely the driest, however you should also take note of the following. July and August are more likely to have short, but heavy, downpours in thunderstorms. June is more likely to have all-day rain, but also has occasional downpours in thunderstorms. June is the transition month, climatologically, from beautiful cool sunny days and all-day spring rains to hazy, hot and humid days with short bursts of thunderstorms. It is likely that the grass will be green through all of June and into mid-July, but by August, the heat and limited rain will result in brown lawns. High temps in June can vary greatly, with 60s or 90s a possibility, but upper 70s to low 80s likely. July typically is in the low to mid 80s, with some 90 degree days. Expect highs in the mid to upper 80's through most of August, with the possibility of low 90's. By late August, it is possible to start seeing occasional cooler weather, but not likely.
