Recapping September heat and a look at first week of October heat
Over the weekend the calendar flipped from September to October and it was a very warm start to the new month coming just 2 degrees away from the record on Sunday. We stay close to records on Monday and Tuesday with highs reaching the middle 80s just a degree or two away from the records. Wednesday's record looks distant as the forecast cools a bit.
September was a very warm month. The warmest highs in the middle 90s happened at the beginning of the month and we dropped into the low 50s during the middle of the month before another round of warmth rolled in to end September. It goes down as a Top 10 warmest September on record officially in sixth place.
Thanks to a soaking rain during the last week of the month September ends over an inch above average on rainfall. It is tied for the 37th wettest September on record!
Now October is here! The average highs during the new month go from the upper 60s to the middle 50s and the lows from 50 to the upper 30s. The month averages nearly 3" of rain and 0.3" of snow. Yes, we typically see snowflakes fall by the end of October. Remember Halloween a few years ago?...
