There are many milestones we reach as this area moves from season to season. Two upcoming temperature milestones will be our first day with a subfreezing high temperature and the other will be our first below zero low of the season.
Our average first day with a high temperature below 32 degrees is November 5. Not only have we not recorded such an event this season, we have only experienced one day with a high in the 30s. Our coldest high temperature this autumn was a 37 degree high on October 28. Last year we did not record a low below freezing until December 2, the latest on record. Although, just a few days after that we observed a low temperature below zero, so it did turn cold quickly thereafter.
It appears we will be experiencing a sub-freezing high temperature next week for the first time since March 19. As for our first sub-zero morning, the average date is November 28, meaning we are likely not too far away from that observance as well.
