October Ranges

Posted: 22 Oct 2014 05:44 AM

This has been a rather tranquil October with temperatures within a range of 40 some degrees as shown by the featured chart. The range shown is simply the difference between the warmest high and coldest low for the month. The range this October, so far, is one of the smallest on record with only 1998 (38) smaller. Of course, this October is not over yet, but the forecast only has temperatures that may extend the range a bit higher on the warm side... An interesting data point on this chart is 1925 with the minimum that year at negative 7! In fact, the last three days of Oct 1925 all had lows below 10 degrees!

Good = 10
Bad = 9
Abstain = 7
