It's so weird seeing temps in the 40s in the FL panhandle and in the 60s in Northern Maine. It's also strange that Northern Maine isn't forecast to get lower than the upper 20s the next few days which is about as cold as North GA is forecast to get. In Boston, it's not forecast to get any colder than 37 the next week !

As we wrap October, I am wondering out loud how often we have had a month with temperature ranges of some 70 degrees or so here in the SE? From 100 degrees to reports of snow. Pretty amazing. Probably more regular for that type of swing in Midwestern and Western states.

KSAV hit a record high of 90 yesterday, which also is the latest in the season 90 on record! The old record latest 90 was Oct 27 (in 2014). So, Oct starts and ends incredibly hot!

*Edit: Not only was Oct a very warm month, but it also was a wet month with a whopping 7-8” of rain, which is double the normal. What was a pretty severe drought has improved markedly thanks to several very nice rain events this month.

From Maxar, October recap:

“October Recap: Cold Rockies / Warm South
October 2019 featured widespread and significant cold from much of the West to the Plains and significant warmth in the South and East. The net result yields 283.8 GWHDDs, between the 10-year (259.2) and 30-year (289.7) normals. The early-month heat in the South/East along with late-month Santa Ana heat in SoCal drove a total of 84.9 PWCDDs, ranking 5th-highest since 1950. 368.7 total degree days (TDD) ranks 18th-highest since 1950. October ranked 4th-coldest on record in Denver, 2nd in Salt Lake City, 3rd in Portland, and coldest for some stations in Montana, while ranking 5th-warmest in Atlanta, 7th in Washington DC and Richmond, and warmest for some stations in Florida. The beginning of the month was exceptionally hot in the Mid-Atlantic and South, including monthly records set in DC (98° 10/2), New York (95° 10/2), Atlanta (98° 10/3), and Memphis (98° 10/3) among many others. The West was marked by cold and early season snow, peaking with an impressive cold blast earlier this week. Salt Lake City set a monthly record low (14°) on Wednesday while Denver tied a monthly record cold high (18°) on Tuesday. October marked a significant change in the precip pattern, as areas of the East and South that saw very little rain in September received significant rain this month. Snow was plentiful in the Rockies, and Chicago had its 2nd-snowiest October on record with 4.6”.”
