In the 123 year history of weather record keeping in Tucson, there have only been 28 October days featuring highs in the 100s. The last October 100 was back in 2015, when TIA hit 101 on the 1st. Tucsons latest 100 reading is October 16th, 1991.

That being said, historical probabilities suggest Tucson has a 0.7% chance in any year to have an October 100 day. May the odds be ever in your favor this Fall.

Well, thank you. I was too lazy to look up my own climatology. :-)

Weird twist.  Started out Sept as the coolest start on record, then flipped 180 and ended up 1.7 degrees above normal.

Wednesday turned out quite rainy in much of Oklahoma as expected or more than expected.  As of 6 pm, Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City has had a record of 2.94". Previous record on Oct. 4th was 2.22" in 1955.  It rained even more than that in Tulsa, the state's 2nd largest city, so it probably set a record as well.  Elsewhere, a location in a neighboring county to the northeast of me got close to 8 in.  I was close to the fringes and only got 2.52".  The Oklahoma Mesonet station located in northwest Stillwater got 3.56".  Interesting how rainfall amounts can vary.  So far, 34.40" of rain this year.  Annual average is:  36.71".

First real rain in quite some time.  Temps have been upper 80s, but only for a few hours in late afternoon.  Would like to use the pool some days, but the nights have been cool enough to chill the water and the days haven't been warm enough long enough to warm it again.

Looked back over the last couple of years and high 80s have shown up in late Oct  and early Nov.

Stillwater is on the far west side of this watch, so it will be interesting to see what pans out, if anything.  The cold front soon to come will be the first quite noticeable cold snap for this fall.  Low forecast to get down to 41 Wednesday morning.

        SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH out for the NE quarter of Oklahoma. Oklahoma County not included.

        Areas Affected:
        Adair - Cherokee - Craig - Creek - Delaware - Kay - Lincoln - Mayes - McIntosh - Muskogee - Noble - Nowata - Okfuskee -
        Okmulgee - Osage - Ottawa - Pawnee - Payne - Rogers - Tulsa - Wagoner - Washington
        Effective: Mon, 10/9 2:55pm Updated: Mon, 10/9 3:00pm Urgency: Expected
        Expires: Mon, 10/9 10:00pm Severity: Severe Certainty: Likely

        COUNTIES AFFECTED:


From the low 40s in the panhandle to summer time 90s in the southeast, contrast with this front is pretty sharp.

My county was dropped from the severe thunderstorm watch.  The watch continues in northeast Oklahoma where there are two lines of strong storms.  The western line is back building to the Red River and beyond.

I have 4 jalapeno plants I've been trying to hang onto covering at night but I think 22 and 6+ hours below freezing is just too much for survival even under blanket.

Can't run a little incandescent out there Randy?

Well I think it's futile anyway.  Couple more weeks is all I would get anyway so I'll just try the blanket again and see what happens.

Weather here in northern AL was seasonable and dry until Nate came through... hit a dewpoint of 76.7F this morning :shock:

Patiently awaiting the passage of the next few cold fronts. I'm ready for cooler and drier weather!

It's been down to 23F here on west side Valentine this morning may dip another degree before sunrise. Here is a look at the triple redundant sensors all SHT-31's 2 with solar aspiration and primary 110v AC fan.

Our central air is still running in CT. It's a bit odd. I had a the wood stove going up in Vermont a few weeks back. It's been a very warm October in New England thus far. Humid too!

Final lows this morning bottomed at 21.2 airport, 21.9 this station, and 21.1F (-6C) east Valentine.  I did start the furnace last night first time this fall.
