The warmest high temperature this month has only been 62 degrees recorded on October 18. Since 1881 only one other October, 1925, has recorded a cooler monthly maximum when the warmest temperature that October was only 60 degrees.
We have experienced some seasonally cold mornings this month, including a record low of 17 degrees on the 13th and a 21 degrees low on the 12th, but our average daily minimum so far this month has been 34 degrees which is right at the long-term October average. Instead, it has been our daily maximums that have made this month one of the top ten coldest on record. Our average daily high temperature so far this month has been 47 degrees which is 11 degrees below the October average of 58 degrees.
It is likely we will finish this month approximately six degrees below normal with that entire anomaly being attributed to our cold daily maximums.
